Many of you know Adam and Bobbee Griff – Adam (or “Griff”) has been our songleader for the Rosh Hashanah Retreat for many years. This summer, they are launching a new outdoor adventure summer program called Adamah Adventures.

Adamah Adventures offers Jewish teens the chance to take on some of the country’s most thrilling, awe-inspiring outdoor adventures. During the 18-day trek, campers work in small groups alongside highly trained staff members to experience both the thrill and the quiet — the whitewater and the campfire — and at the end of each week, an enthusiastic Shabbat under mountain stars. The inaugural summer includes trips to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia and Tennessee, and to Utah.

If you’ve never been to a Jewish overnight camp, you could receive a grant of up to $1,500! Early bird discounts and refer-a-friend discounts are also available.
For more information, please visit their website,

We wish them lots of success in this new venture!
