Situated on six picturesque, tree-filled acres northwest of Chicago in Wheeling, Illinois, Ramah Day Camp is a warm and nurturing environment where kids come to learn Jewish values, to grow socially and – most importantly – to have fun!
At Ramah Day Camp, your entering kindergarten through sixth-grade child is welcomed into a strong community shaped by care and respect that is built on a foundation of Jewish ideals. As they enjoy exciting daily camp activities, including sports, swimming, dancing, cookouts, singing, arts and crafts and more, Ramah Day campers meet new friends, learn new skills and make memories that will last a lifetime. Special theme days and field trips enhance a summer experience filled with joy and wonder.
Our talented staff is led by Lori Stark, who has served as director since 2001. These dedicated and caring specialty instructors, Jewish educators and college-age counselors create an environment where fun and friendship build Jewish lives.
Our goal at Ramah Day Camp is to help your child grow. Through fun, engaging, group-focused activities that seamlessly integrate Jewish values and Hebrew language, we encourage and support the social development of each child within the group. Our campers learn skills in leadership, problem-solving and decision-making – all while having tons of fun!
