A real estate professional specializing in health care facilities, Robert Kasirer is committed to improving his community by supporting educational institutions, such as the Harvard-Westlake School. In addition, Robert Kasirer advocates programs that promote Judaism. As such, he contributes to Camp Ramah in California.
Every year, Camp Ramah hosts a series of summer camps that integrate Jewish traditions and practices into fun activities. Campers enjoy performing arts, sports, aquatics, and crafts. Further, organized camping trips allow children to connect with their surroundings and make valuable friendships over campfire stories.
For children entering 3rd grade and up to 5th grade, a two-week introductory camping gesher is available. Gesher, which means bridge, offers first-time campers a sample of camp life. Taking programs and activities from Camp Ramah’s four-week session, the organization specially trains gesher staff to help children become acclimated to the environment and enjoy learning about Judaism.
Camp Ramah has four summer gesher sessions available for 2015. The first session kicks off on June 16th, and the final gesher commences on July 29th. Registration can be completed online at http://www.ramah.org. A $2,420 fee is required.
