Everyone probably has their own set of reasons for why they might decide to come to Camp Ramah in the Berkshires for Memorial Day weekend. Some may come to get away to the country for the weekend, some may come to meet new people, some may come for the activities, etc etc. Below are just a few of the reasons why you should come;


1. The Vision Statement Reason;

Imagine a long weekend in the country at a very large private resort that you have reserved for just you and your friends. It has the requisite green mountains, rolling lawns and a large beautiful lake.  On a clear night there are many more stars visible than can ever be seen from New York City. While many people are there with you, it does not feel crowded given the size of the place. 

People find their own pace, whether hanging around the beach, reading and sunbathing, playing softball, hiking or participating in one of the many other activities. Friends - new and old - are relaxed, enjoying each other's company. You feel like you are on vacation with old friends whose company you enjoy. The only hint that you are on a singles weekend is the fact almost all of you are single.

You never imagined a singles weekend could be like this!
