  Kol Ramah, Week 7
Shiur - Interactive Jewish Learning!
Shiur, our unique, interactive, Jewish education program allows chanichim to experience our history, traditions, holidays, and Israel through performance arts, hands-on games, and crafts. This summer, our younger chanichim focused on kindness, gratitude, and cooperation, and also explored the history, culture, and geography of Israel. Our older chanichim chose from a variety of Shiur bechirot (electives) allowing them to customize their experience. They chose from established favorites - fusing Jewish learning with building and engineering, and expressing our Jewish values through art - and new additions to our bechira offerings, including publishing a zine (a self-published, special interest, small-circulation magazine) about strong, Jewish women. Our shiur experience has something for everyone.

General Camp News
Ramah Fine Arts
Ramah Fine Arts campers channeled their inner creativity while delving into various materials, techniques, artists, and concepts. They explored how Judaism is woven through the work of prolific artists Marc Chagall, Yaakov Agam, and Marc Di Suvero. Drawing inspiration from the artists' work, campers expressed their own interpretations of patterns in Jewish life and ritual while working with complementary colors, gradation techniques, watercolors and pastels, basic clay building, portrait and gesture drawing, and studio drawing skills. We look forward to seeing you in Kayitz 2020 when we will build upon the skills learned this summer, while providing a strong introduction to first-time Ramah Fine Arts campers.
Important Reminders
Please label all articles of clothing, hats, swimsuits, water bottles, and sunscreen your child wears or brings to camp. If an item gets separated from your child it allows us to return it quickly.

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 .

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
  • Please call camp at (845) 358-6240 or email before noon 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). Please obtain a visitor's pass from our security staff and proceed to the camp office where you will meet your child and 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.
