Ramah in the Rockies Offering Family Camp

Ramah in the Rockies is hosting a Family Camp from August 6-9, 2010 at their property near Deckers, CO.

Create a castle in time as we camp together and explore “The Sabbath” by A.J. Heschel.  Adults will engage in text study sessions, while your children are busy participating in camp activities with outstanding Ramah Outdoor Adventure staff.

Programming for children entering kindergarten through fifth grades includes: Hiking, ropes course, orienteering, wilderness arts and crafts, back country cooking, and more!

Teens (eighth through twelfth graders) will participate in a special tzedek (social justice) program funded by Rose Youth Foundation, an initiative of Rose Community Foundation.

Families will share an incredible Shabbat experience of exploring and experiencing the best of Ramah in the Rockies.

This is a chance to experience Ramah in the Rockies as a family, and consider the opportunity to send your children to this unique camp next summer.   Located just outside of Deckers, CO, Ramah in the Rockies is 360 acres bordering on national forest. Ramah in the Rockies is the first specialty camp of the Ramah camping movement, combining outdoor adventure and environmental awareness with Jewish living and learning.
