Ramah Outdoor Adventure is a co-ed, residential, outdoor adventure summer camp program located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Campers at Ramah Outdoor Adventure range in age from entering 3rd – 12th grade and participate in 2-week, or 4-week programs.

Our mission at Ramah Outdoor Adventure is to provide outstanding outdoor adventure experiences that teach Jewish values and leadership skills and influence the character development of Jewish youth. We do this through intense community building at base camp and on adventure trips.

Our rustic base camp is located on a 360-acre ranch nestled in the pristine Pike & San Isabel National Forests about 90 minutes southwest of Denver, at an Elevation of 8000’. There is a barn, two riding rings, and a fenced pasture on the property. Some trails already exist on the ranch, and we hope to create a few more.

This position requires the staff member to be in residence for 6 days/week during the course of the summer.
