First of all congratulations to the winners of a free week of camp for February:  Ariel from New Rochelle  & Rose from California.

And now the blog post:  On Thursday night, I had the pleasure of holding a toast to Ramah Outdoor Adventure at a local bar in Midtown.  A fellow staff member from Camp Ramah in Canada, Sharon Zinns, who currently works as a lawyer in New York City was instrumental in helping to arrange the evening.

Originally, Sharon and I thought that we would use this gathering as a chance to reconnect with our Ramah friends from our years at camp and perhaps raise a few dollars to help campers afford to attend Ramah Outdoor Adventure in Colorado.  As it turned out, many of the people who came on Thursday were not people whom either of us knew from our time at camp, but rather, Ramahniks who wanted an excuse to come and meet their other camp friends and hear more about this exciting project.

This weeks post is a VERY short one.  I just wanted to say congratulations to Noah from Boulder and Savannah from California for being the winners of the Ram Outdoor Adventure December raffle.  Both are entering 6th grade!  We are looking forward to seeing you guys at camp this summer.   The families were notified by phone on Monday, though we are only sending this out to the broader community today.

Remember, we give away two weeks of camp the first Monday of each month.  To enter our raffle for next month, please send an email with your child’s name, daytime phone number and email to

A more complete post will be coming next week.
