The Ramah Special Needs Programs have had a profound impact on our family and many other families and campers we have observed over the years. In numerous visits to Ramah Camps we have personally witnessed the transformation of camp as special needs campers have been integrated into the greater camp community. This integration is a gift to all campers and is a model for the wider community. These programs need nurturing and expanded support.
Camp Ramah has a place for everyone and we must do a better job of developing resources to support programs for our special needs children, teens and young adults. Special Needs programs need to be more widely available and more fully funded.
We hope our participation in both the Ramah Israel Bike Ride and Hike will help increase awareness of Ramah Special Needs programs and raise significant funds to support the growth and development of these programs throughout all the Ramah Camps. To show our own commitment to this cause we have already donated the minimum fundraising goals for the bike ride ($3600) and the hike ($1800). Any additional amount, small or large, is greatly appreciated. Thank you for visiting our fundraising page!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts. (However, if you wish to donate offline, please let us know and we will help work it out for you.)
Many thanks for your support -- and please forward this web link to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
B'Shalom, Mark and Ilana
