The Camp Experience

At Ramah Day Camp, your entering kindergarten through sixth-grade child is welcomed into a strong community shaped by care and respect, and 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.
