The Magic of Zimriyah!
It's been an incredible week packed with Zimriyah, special edah events, and a play starring our Ramah Performs specialty campers. We loved greeting our Ramah family on Wednesday night and sharing an exceptional evening as a community. Please enjoy our Zimriyah videos.

General Camp News
Fine Arts at Ramah Nyack
From ceramics and omanut (arts and crafts) to our loose parts area and etz (woodworking), our campers tap into their creativity in our fine arts programs. We are so impressed by our first session projects including wooden dreidels, wire sculptures inspired by Israeli artist, Menashe Kadishman, ceramic self-portraits, and musical instruments crafted out of everyday objects. Art at Ramah Nyack extends beyond our specific art areas and is integrated throughout other camp activities.  Click here  or on the image above to enjoy highlights of art at Ramah.
Ramah Nyack on Stage
This week our chanichim took center stage at Ramah Performs! Our thespians sang, danced, acted, and explored improvisation techniques. Our Yom Tachpusot (dress-up day) was especially fun. Campers came dressed as characters from Broadway shows, TV shows, and movies. The highlight of our week was seeing our campers star in B'tzelem Ehlokim, the Ramah Performs original production, allowing each to express his/her individuality.

Limited spaces are still available for our Ramah Tech specialty camp. Please  click here   for additional information.
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 .
