Ramah Sports Academy Scorecard
Keeping Score on What's New at RSA 
Dear Friends,

It is hard to believe that there are only 224 days until the Ramah Sports Academy opens our doors for the first time. We just returned from a visit to Fairfield University and it was a perfect fall day. Despite the beautiful foliage, we couldn’t help but think ahead to the summer and all the amazing activities that will take place on campus. From the courts, to the fields, to the pool, it was easy to fast forward to all of our campers working hard on their sports while having a great time. And walking through our dormitory and across the campus, even though there was a chill in the air, we felt the warmth of community that we will bring to camp this summer. 

This month, we are on the road! If we are coming to your neighborhood (see below), please come see us. If we aren’t, please invite us. There is nothing better than meeting our future campers and their families. Be sure to read on to learn about our community visits, the “One Happy Camper” incentive program, and more.

L’hitraot (see you soon),
The Ramah Sports Academy Team
RSA on the Road and in Your Community
