High Ropes Course
One of the biggest attractions at Camp Ramah is our team-building High Ropes Course, or our Etgar (Challenge). Over three-stories high, and stretching over fifty-yards wide, our campers utilize team-building skills in order to accomplish four challenging obstacles on their way towards our thrilling zip line descent. Under constant, trained supervision, your child will learn how to challenge themselves and others in order to achieve their goals.
Our Etgar is dedicated to the memory of Sharon and Neil Norry, who met at Camp Ramah in the Poconos in 1954.
