Dreams Become Reality

Posted on December 6, 2017

A short eighteen months ago, Ramah in the Rockies made the commitment
to create the nation’s first Jewish wilderness therapy program.
In January 2018, this dream becomes reality as
BaMidbar Wilderness Therapy Program welcomes its first students!

Over the last year, we have: 

  • Strengthened the impact of the wilderness therapy model by
    incorporating Jewish traditions, values, and storytelling.
  • Launched fundraising campaigns to winterize our facility, support
    program development, and partially fund need-based scholarships.
  • Hired 15 staff for our clinical, spiritual, and field teams from over
    150 applications.
  • Hosted 9 events in 5 states, which reached over 450 people.

In the coming months, we are:

  • Hosting an intensive, 3-week staff training in early January.
  • Welcoming our first students January 24, 2018.
  • Guiding 12-20 students through transformative experiences which will help them build the skills to face life’s challenges.

What you can do:

We need to raise an additional $25,000 to support community education and outreach events, meet our 2018 scholarship goal, and sustain continued program development.
