Featured Workshop: Camp Ramah New England
On August 3rd and 4th, we flew up to Palmer, Massachusetts to run #healthyfriendships and our Leadership Training workshop with the campers at Camp Ramah. This was our first time facilitating #healthyfriendships outside of a school setting, and it was a tremendous success. The rising 7th and 8th graders at the camp really related to the stories and got a lot of out of the workshop. The rising 11th grade campers work with the younger campers during the week and took a lot away from our workshop and will apply it to their time with the younger bunks the rest of the summer. We love working with Camp Ramah and look forward to continuing this partnership into the future!
