At Ramah, we believe in a well-rounded camp program, exposing our campers to sports, arts, and outdoor education. We also know that some campers prefer a more specialized daily program. At Ramah, you can have it all! Each week, campers select 2 new daily chugim (electives) from a wide range of options. Campers can fill their day with sports, omanut (arts & crafts) or try a variety of different programs. Chugim options may include: Har Ramah (climbing tower), chetz v’keshet (archery), teva (garden), drama, bishul (cooking), mada (STEM), rikud (dance), lawn games including our Kachol Gadol (big blue blocks) and mini-golf, sports such as flag football, ultimate frisbee, volleyball, and soccer, and omanut (arts & crafts) such as water colors, self-portraits, weaving, and candlemaking.
In addition to our 2 daily chugim electives, all of our campers receive swim instruction, learn Jewish and Israeli songs and dances, and acquire the very best in informal Jewish education, where our experienced yahadut educators infuse Jewish values and texts into everyday camp activities.
The camp day begins and ends at the bus stop, with programming built into the ride to and from camp. Each day is packed with excitement and discovery, leaving our campers happy and fulfilled.
