Also, you can subscribe to Ramah Youtube channels to receive updates when new videos are posted.  

Poconos Video
"HaChofesh HaGadol" video (Ramah Poconos)

Special summer highlights. At Ramah New England, a time lapse video reveals the action taking place on the first day of camp. Other highlight videos include a wonderful first week at Ramah Wisconsin; discovering new skills at Ramah Nyack; and Ramah Darom's first-session video yearbook.  


Music, song, and dance. Ramah Poconos produced "HaChofesh HaGadol," a music video combining lip synching and audio dubbing. In celebration of Yom Sport at Ramah Outdoor Adventure, "Team Olive" wrote an original song about friendship. Campers and staff at Ramah Canada sing lines from their favorite Zimriyah songs; and at the Philadelphia Ramah Day Camp, campers perform in The Wizard of Oy


Outstanding Israel educational programming and a love of Israel. Meet the 2011 mishlachat of Ramah Berkshires; visit Eilat at the Chicagoland Ramah Day Camp's Yom Yisrael; and experience the sights and sounds of Eretz Yisrael with Ramah Israel Seminar.


Camper-produced videos. At several Ramah camps, campers can choose to participate in a video chug (activity). Enjoy the Mitzvah Man video of Ramah California's Tikshoret (communications) chug, a day in camp life as seen through the journey of a water bottle at Ramah Outdoor Adventure, and this collection of silent films from Ramah Canada's video chug.


We hope that you enjoy these and the many other videos from Ramah camps and Israel programs!
