Nivonim 2002 Reunion Campaign

Dear Nivo '02,


After 13 years away twenty-two members of our aidah returned to camp this summer.  Some of us married, some with children, and some seemingly unchanged from the way we left camp 13 years ago (check out our awesome photo above!). Ramah is still a magical place. For starters, the physical camp is still incredibly beautiful. It's hard to believe camp is home to over 700 people during the summer yet you can still find a totally private place to hang out with a friend. As we walked towards the waterfront, visited Machon point, and strolled on the garbage trail, we felt a deep sense of familiarity.  The memories are almost endless.   


We spent most of the weekend just catching up with everyone. We saw all of the changes camp had made over the past 13 years. Yet despite all changes, everything is still in place.   The flow of the camp is still the same, the kikar is still the kikar and sitting on the deck of the Sifria or gazing out of the Ohel Yitzchak are still amazing Ramah experiences. 

What was most striking is that after all these years, kids are going to camp today and having incredibly deep, meaningful experiences – exactly like we did.   We have amazing friendships from camp that are rooted in so much history and shared experiences.  


We were very surprised to hear that over half of current campers receive scholarship funding to attend camp each year.  As an aidah, life-long friends and hopefully future parents of Ramahniks, we have the ability to make a difference in the lives of campers from around the country by contributing to the Scholarship fund as part of the NIVONIM 2002 REUNION CAMPAIGN. Every dollar donated will help ensure that the next generation of Ramah campers can make it to the Northwoods of Wisconsin – a place that will always have a special place in our hearts. With a campaign goal of $13,000 we can do incredible good for a place that has given us all so much over the years.  


Camp's fiscal year ends September 30, so please make a commitment today.


Regardless of your means, wherever you are in life, any support you provide is appreciated.
