BaMidbar Wilderness Therapy is based at Ramah in the Rockies, a 360-acre ranch nestled in the pristine Pike and San Isabel National Forests. Ramah in the Rockies is 90 minutes from Denver, at an elevation of 8,000 feet. The ranch is surrounded by towering mountain peaks and has three mountain-fed streams running through the middle of the property. We have on-site natural climbing walls, fields, trails, bike paths, and hundreds of acres for our students to safely explore. The Ramah in the Rockies ranch and surrounding public lands are a perfect environment for students to rediscover themselves, their values, and a healthy, fulfilling path forward.
All BaMidbar sleeping facilities are rustic and solidly-built to withstand the elements. From Thursday to Sunday morning, students are at Ramah in the Rockies’ ranch and stay in wooden cabents. The cabents are outfitted with baseboard heating and bunk beds, and are situated around communal toilet facilities.
Students will spend Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at basecamp, and will be on masa, or excursion, from Sunday to Wednesday. Weather depending, these excursions may be around our 360-acre ranch, or on BLM, Forest Service, National Park Service, or State Park properties in the region. In warm weather, students sleep in tents or under tarps as they travel together as a group. In colder weather, students sleep in tipis that are outfitted with stoves to provide heat.
