Dates & Rates
With deep sadness, we made the difficult decision to close Ramah Day Camp for all sessions for Kayitz (summer) 2020 due to the current pandemic. For more information about Ramah’s closure, please see our COVID-19 Updates & FAQ’s webpage.
Dates & Information for 2021:
The Kayitz 2021 (summer 2021) season will open on Monday, June 28 and close on Friday, August 13. The rates for the Summer of 2021 are not available yet. Below is information from our 2020 season which may be helpful to you in the meantime. Please note – we will again offer an Early Bird discount (not reflected in the rates below) for families who register their child(ren) by December 31, 2020.
The Summer 2020 season opens on Monday, June 22 and closes on Friday, August 7. 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 add Sha’ar to Nitzanim this year and will feature a new 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.

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 15 (for families not on a payment plan).
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 15||50% of tuition|
|After May 15||No refund available|
