  Kol Ramah, Week 4
L'hitraot First Session Campers
As we said goodbye to our first session campers this afternoon, we were grateful for the time we had together. We are incredibly proud to have witnessed your children form meaningful friendships, become more confident swimmers, skilled athletes, strong climbers, and imaginative artists, all with a generous heart and love for being Jewish. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we can't wait to welcome you back to the migrash for Kayitz 2020. We look forward to seeing our new and returning campers for the start of second session on Monday.

General Camp News
Swim at Ramah

We have been staying cool in our four pools this week and all summer! Our phenomenal lifeguards, all American Red Cross certified, are instructing campers in skills ranging from blowing bubbles underwater for our beginners, to practicing strokes and diving techniques for our more advanced swimmers. Every camper enjoys two swim periods each day, and extra free swims on especially hot days. Everyone has a chance to strengthen their skills, cool down, and have a lot of fun.  Click here  or on the image above to see campers enjoying our pools.
Ramah Gets Technical
This week our chanichim got technical in our Ramah Tech specialty camp. Campers spent the w eek learnin g to do 3D printing, coding a micro:bit using MakeCode, and making videos using Adobe Spark. Campers were excited to use their knowledge to creatively solve a hypothetical problem- how can we get campers safely across Christian Herald Road without using the gesher. We had such a great week together and hope to see you back in Ramah Tech in Kayitz 2020.

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