On Masa BaTeva, about half of your camper’s time will be spent on site at Camp Ramah in Canada, and half of their time will be spent out of camp on camping and canoe trips. These trips will take place on Camp Ramah’s private island and lakefront campsites and in Ontario’s beautiful national parks.

While in camp, Masa BaTeva campers’ days will center around skill building, community connection, and character growth through spending time in nature, and Jewish experience. Campers will have access to our new high ropes, aerial, repelling, and climbing tower, will develop canoe and swim skills in the agam (lake), will bike, fire build, and learn how to camp. There will also be opportunities for Masa BaTeva campers to join in on some classic camp activities, like boating, waterskiing, arts and crafts and sports. There will be a Jewish framing (including prayer and mindfulness practices) to open and close our days, and Jewish learning will be integrated into our nature and outdoor skill learning.
In the first week of Masa BaTeva, campers will experience a 1-2 day lake trip, where they will begin to build paddling, hiking, and wilderness exploration skills. In the second week, campers will participate in a 3 day backpacking or climbing trip (details TBD), where they will continue to build wilderness skills, take their rock climbing skills outside of camp, and connect with nature. In the third and final week of Masa BaTeva, campers will participate in a 4-7 day culminating canoe trip, guided by our partners at The Trip Shed.
We are excited to meet our Masa BaTeva chanichim (campers), and will build a program that suits their needs and their goals for skill building, growth, and personal development.
