What's New at Camp?!
Welcome to Park Mada!

This summer we are thrilled to open our brand new state-of-the-art STEM center, Park Mada! Over 3 years in the making, Park Mada houses all of our science and technology activities here at camp including: the Central Science Center with large workstations and labs; Makerspace with magnetic walls, wood tracks and pipes; the Robotics room, where campers learn how to design, program, and make robots and use our 3-D printers; Walls of Wonder Room where campers participate in developing videos. The Shalva Center is a sensory space where members of our Camper Care team work with campers who need some extra help with emotional regulation and a more calm and quiet space and chanichim love playing in the Outdoor Music Garden, which is right outside. Enjoy this video of Park Mada!

And the Word of the Summer Is....
Nadir! Literally meaning rare, nadir is used in Israeli slang to mean amazing, awesome, etc. Chanichim (campers) are already having a nadir summer!
In Our Community

Thanks to generous donors, a copy of Devash Parashah Magazine, produced by Hadar, will be sent home with your oldest camper each Friday. We are grateful to be able to share this exciting resource with your family, which will also be used at camp for various activities, plays, and games to teach our chanichim about the weekly parashah.
We provide our campers with snacks and meals throughout the day. For the safety of our campers and staff with food allergies, we ask that no food of any kind be sent to camp with your children.

Please send your child(ren) everyday with:
  • A refillable water bottle from home so that your child(ren) can refill it throughout the day with water to stay hydrated.
  • A bottle of sunscreen (labeled). Please apply sunscreen before your child departs for camp. We will reapply it throughout the day and the labeled bottle of sunscreen will be kept in your child’s changing area.
  • While not required, we highly recommend sending a hat for your child to wear, especially on hot days.

Important Procedures
Your children are having so much fun here that we encourage you to keep them in camp until the regular dismissal time. We understand that there are extenuating circumstances that occasionally require you to pick up your child early. If so, please follow these procedures:
  • Your child may be picked up by a parent or by an authorized adult previously designated in your CampMinder account. For any changes, please email travel@ramahnyack.org.
  • Please call camp at (845) 358-6240 or email travel@ramahnyack.org by 11am on the day of the change and let us know what time you will be picking up your child. The office staff will notify your child's counselor and bus driver of the revised dismissal plans.
  • Upon your arrival for early dismissal, please park in the Gould parking lot (across from the entrance to Nyack High School) and let our security staff know your name and your camper's name and they will call the office to let us know you have arrived. A staff member will escort your child to Gould to meet you, where you will sign him/her out. Please do not take your child out of camp without signing out.
  • All early pick-ups must take place BEFORE 3:00 p.m. After 3:00 p.m., pick-ups will be carpool pick-ups in the Gould parking lot at regular dismissal.
