Dates & Rates

The Kayitz 2021 (Summer 2021) season opens on Monday, June 28 and close on Friday, August 13. In order to create an enriching community and wholesome Ramah experience, we ask families to register for at least one two-week session (see session dates below).  After children have completed a full two-week session, you are welcome to register for as many additional weeks as you would like.  Our Sha’ar program, however, is a full seven weeks since consistency is the foundation of our Hebrew immersion experience.  We are also excited to offer Sha’ar to Nitzanim this year and will feature a four-week program for this edah (division). More information about the Sha’ar Hebrew immersion program can be found here.  Please contact us if you have any questions about your summer dates.

We realize how difficult it is to plan for summer during continued uncertainty. We are launching enrollment based on the plan of being able to operate safely and at near-full capacity.  However, we know that we will likely need to adjust our protocols and programming to ensure the safest summer possible in 2021. Please refer to our Covid Updates webpage for more information specific to our policies and plans for this coming summer.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available. Applications for financial aid will be accessible in your CampMinder account by early January 2021 and after you complete your camper application.  The initial deadline for financial aid applications is in mid-February.  We do all that we can to make it possible for everyone to experience a summer at Ramah.  If you have questions about the financial aid process, please contact us.

Registration Deposit, Fees & Payment Plans

A deposit of $100 per week enrolled (minimum $200) is due at the time of registration.  By March 15, camp families are required to pay 50% of their tuition fees or arrange a payment plan with our Finance Office.  Full payment is due by May 17 (for families not on a payment plan).

Please refer to our Covid Updates webpage for more information specific to deposits and COVID-related changes for this coming summer.

Cancellation Policy

We know that plans change. We also need to plan in order to serve all of our campers. Unfortunately that means we have to have a cancellation policy. We must have notification in writing if you need to withdraw your child before the start of camp. Below is our schedule of tuition refunds and fees:

Cancellation Date Cancellation Fee
On or before December 31 Full refund (no penalty)
January 1 - March 15 15% of tuition
March 16 - May 17 50% of tuition
