Ramah in the Rockies Celebrates Gratitude Week 2015

ramahRabbi Eliav Bock, Executive Director of Ramah in the Rockies, has designated the week of March 23 as the organization’s First Annual Gratitude Week.

As we count down to the opening our 6th summer, I would like to stop and thank all of our supporters, volunteers and raving fans who have helped us achieve our ongoing success!

“Because of you, we have been able to serve over 1000 unique campers over the past 5 camping seasons, helping each of them deepen their Jewish identity.

“We are excited to welcome over 550 campers and staff to our ranch this summer, and we know that accomplishment is only because of your generous support. Each and every gift of your valuable time and resources allows us to continue our important work… building an intense and intentional Jewish community here in the Rocky Mountains!”

Since the beginning of the organization’s fiscal year on October 1, 2014, Ramah in the Rockies has received just over $898,000 in new gifts and pledges. The goal of the organization is to expand through capital projects in order to serve 500 campers each summer.

Ramah in the Rockies is located on 360 pristine acres surrounded by national forest, approximately 2 hours southwest of Denver, Colorado. Its mission is to provide outstanding outdoor adventure experiences that teach Jewish values and age appropriate leadership skills and influence the character development of Jewish youth.

Camp opens in less than 100 days and over 450 campers have registered. There are a few spots left. For more information contact the office at 303-261-8214 or office@ramahoutdoors.org.
