The VISION 2020 Campaign is already leaving its mark on Ramah Darom! With fundraising 2/3 of the way to meeting our goal of $5 million, we would like to thank everyone who has participated to date. The VISION 2020 Campaign is not just about building; it is about maintaining a premier experience for our Ramah Darom family and investing in a Jewish future through enhanced programs and facilities.
The impact of the support received to date has been plentiful.
To name some of what has already been accomplished:
- Creation of a Tikvah program and new cabin built to house campers participating in the program
- Gan to house day camp for staff children, under camp age, which also doubles for use as a year-round accommodation
- Lake House offering a sheltered porch, changing space and storage for lake equipment
- Half Basketball Court built near cabins for our younger campers enhancing our recreational facilities
- Outdoor Cooking Facility providing enjoyment all year with a pizza oven, fireplace, and patio
- Garden and orchard next to the Levine Ramah Center
- Covered pavilion and 2 new gazebos expanding program space
- Boardwalk nestled amongst a canopy of trees linking new cottages
- Support for Creation of new Year-Round programming
- Security gates and enhanced campus communication
- Adjacent property purchased to facilitate future planning
- Restoration, protection, and re-landscaping of the island
- 5 cottages built on boardwalk providing needed staff and year-round housing
For those who have not had the opportunity to participate yet, there are so many ways to do so. We’ve come a long way but we are still in need of support to create more programs, additional housing, as well as additional program space to meet the needs of our growing community.
