Our mission is to provide outstanding outdoor adventure experiences that teach Jewish values and leadership skills and influence the character development of Jewish youth. We do this through intense community building at base camp and on adventure trips.
Through an appreciation of nature, chalutzim (lit pioneers, i.e campers) and madrichim of Ramah Outdoor Adventure will learn to embrace our world’s beauty and gain a sense of personal responsibility for its treasures. Our program encourages its chalutzim to challenge their personal physical limits and to feel confident in their natural surroundings. We strive to build a supportive Jewish community to serve as a paradigm for their adult Jewish lives.
For chalutzim, a Ramah Outdoors experience will:
- Increase self confidence
- Increase appreciation for nature
- Improve outdoor adventure skills
- Increase Judaic knowledge
- Enhance Jewish life through knowledge and understanding
- Increase sense of Jewish identity
We have much to be proud of at Ramah Outdoor Adventure as our program evolves and we continue to build on the success of the classic Ramah traditions. We are the first Ramah-inspired camping experience in the Rocky Mountain region. As our program grows, chalutzim will have more opportunities to learn about their environment and gain a sense of positive personal achievement — all wrapped in the comfort and traditions of a Ramah setting.
