Think you’re too old for camp? Think again. Even after you’ve left your camper years behind, after staff is a memory…you will always be a Wisconsin Ramahnik! Our programs create fun opportunities for Ramahniks of all ages to reunite with long-lost friends, to reminisce about their camp days, and to strengthen their bonds with camp.
It is often said that “Ramah is an experience that lasts a lifetime.” So how can a Ramahnik (defined as anyone/everyone connected to Ramah: campers, staff members, parents, grandparents, the whole community of Ramah supporters) stay connected? Here are a few suggestions:
- Update your contact information and sign up for our newsletters.
- Click here to join the Reshet Ramah Alumni and Community Engagement Network!
- Attend a Ramah event in the community and/or reunions at camp. If there’s nothing listed for your aidah or area, let’s get something started!
- Return to the kikar: Even if it’s not a “reunion year” for your aidah, we invite you to make the trek to Conover to reconnect with Ramah. Come for a day or spend a night in the guesthouse – we’d love to give you a taste of the 2018 camp experience. Come to camp for Visitors’ Days 2018 (July 15 &16) or if you’d like to visit at another time during the summer, just let us know.
- Email your camp friends and let them know about the great new Camp Ramah in Wisconsin website. You too can be a connector!
- Find out about camp enrollment meetings being held in your area. Encourage friends and family with eligible children to register for summer 2018.
- Volunteer: Camp Ramah needs help on the first and last days of the camp season to escort campers at airports and to supervise bus boarding points.
- Host a Ramah staff member at your work place for a one month internship. A generous Chicago-based foundation sponsors one-month business, social service and professional internships during the month of May for entering college juniors and seniors. Qualified Ramah staff members are placed in a work place matched to their field of interest. After a month in the business world they work at camp from June to August and are awarded a stipend in addition to their camp salary.
- Contribute financially to camp, in whatever way you can. In-kind donations are great too.
- Share: Email memories of your summers at camp. Send us your photos from way back when and recent ones too. Let us know what you’ve been doing since you left camp. Send us news of your new job, life cycle events, plans for the future. Let’s stay connected! For details on all of the above, contact Robin Rubenstein, Alumni Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
