Since we cannot be physically together with our Ramah friends this year for Shabbat Across Ramah, we hope you will join Ramah New England and National Ramah for a diverse and exciting line-up of programming. All events are free, but many require pre-registration. Go to the Shabbat Across Ramah webpage for the program details and registration links (where applicable).
Additional Camp Events and Info Sessions
We will soon be announcing additional opportunities for prospective families interested in joining us for Kayitz 2021. Please check our website again soon or contact Sharon Rosenberg Safra, Assistant Director, who will be happy to notify you when those dates are available.
We know how important it is for families to see camp prior to committing for the summer. We plan to offer several virtual open houses with lots of pictures so families can get a real sense of what makes Ramah Day Camp so special. As the fall progresses, we also hope to offer socially-distant in-person camp tours. We will post dates here on this webpage and Facebook page as well as email you to let you know about upcoming events. Not on our email list? Have friends who might want to hear about these opportunities? Please contact Sharon Rosenberg Safra, Assistant Director.
