runs on healthy snacks and full bellies.

When campers are playing hard and having this much fun, they work up a BIG appetite!


Campers bring their own lunches every day except Friday (see Pizza Fridays info below). Please pack a kosher dairy or pareve (no meat) lunch. Click here to see the list of various kosher symbols to look for on packaged food for camp lunches. Campers will receive a Ramah Day Camp lunch bag and these bags will be collected each morning and placed in the camp refrigerators. 


We provide two healthy, kosher, nut-free snacks a day. Generally we offer packaged snacks in the morning (such as pretzels and Pirate’s Booty) and fruit in the afternoon. Campers also get a special treat to cool off before the bus ride home each day – popsicles! On Fridays we serve ice cream sandwiches for a sweet Shabbat.

Pizza Fridays

Every Friday we serve pizza for lunch to wrap up another great week at camp. If your child doesn’t like pizza, don’t worry – they can still bring their own lunch.

Food Allergies

Health and safety are a top priority at Ramah Day Camp and we are committed to being allergy-safe. While we are not allergen-free, we try to make our campus as safe as possible for our campers with allergies by working closely with their families before and during the summer.

Ramah Day Camp is a nut-aware campus. We do not serve any snacks or food that contain nuts or are processed in a facility with nuts. Campers may bring nut products in their lunches. Counselors are made aware of all allergies and ensure that no campers are sharing food during lunch.
