Give the Gift of Camp

June 7, 2020

“Give the Gift of Camp” is Ramah Berkshires Alumni Association’s annual camp scholarship fundraiser. This year, our goal is to raise $15,000 from 360 alumni.

Since last year, much has changed in our world. Our communities are faced with insurmountable challenges and unparalleled restrictions, leading many of us to ask ourselves what we can do to help our community during these difficult times. As may you know, after months of deliberation and consideration, Camp leadership made the painful decision that it is not possible to open Camp in any way this summer, prioritizing the health and safety of our campers and staff over the financial and emotional ramifications of the closure. During this difficult time, Camp’s year-round staff is working tirelessly to support the greater CRB community — to keep virtual programming available, maintain overhead costs and keep future scholarship assistance programs afloat. Let’s do our part to help them through this challenging chapter. 

As Ramah alumni we are notoriously engaged — with each other, our communities and the world around us. Our experiences at Camp shaped our lives and continue to give us the support system we need during these difficult times. The Ramah Berkshires community needs us today and in the future.

Join Ramah Berkshires Alumni from across the globe and Give the Gift of Camp. Donate or pledge  $54, $36, $18, or any amount that feels meaningful to you.
