  Kol Ramah, Week 4
Spotlight on Swim!
Each day our chanichim have both instructional and free swim, and on hotter days, like this week, they have an extra free swim. Our tzevet mayim (swim staff) is made up of American and Israeli lifeguards who are all American Red Cross certified and receive ongoing training throughout the summer. Campers are divided into instructional swim groups based on skill level and work towards getting to the next level throughout the summer. Depending on age and level, they learn how to tread water, all of the strokes (breast, freestyle, backstroke and sidestroke), floating, and for our most advanced swimmers, diving. Each day is filled with different activities and exercises aimed to both teach skills, as well as help campers develop a real love of, and comfort in the water. We hope you enjoy the above video of our swim program!

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. Click here for a link to a PDF of the full magazine for this week's parashah, Pinhas.
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.
