Ramah as an Incubator for New Ideas!
I'm pleased to share with you all a new article on ejewishphilanthropy.com that praises Camp Ramah's model of camping and staff development.
Here's an excerpt:
Ramah’s focus and measurable successes in developing staff, from counselors to directors, makes for a natural pairing, leaders of Jewish organizations and foundations said.
“Leadership and development statistics are consistent across the movements, pointing to the unbelievable power of the Jewish camping experience,” said Jeremy Fingerman [CEO of the Foundation for Jewish Camp]. “What is special about Ramah is that it has a very centralized and strategic way of thinking and developing. It is easier for us to support those with a long history and a track record.”
Beyond redefining the Jewish camping experience by developing the new camp in the Rockies, new funding and partnerships are enabling Ramah to enhance and expand staff development as a key part of its mission.
