Dates & Rates


The Kayitz (summer) 2024 season will open on Monday, June 24 and close on Friday, August 9.  In 2024, our general camp program will run for three two-week sessions and a final one-week session.  (Session dates appear in the table below.)  Families may register their child(ren) for a single session or any combination of sessions. Of course, we love when families take advantage of our full summer discount and enroll their child(ren) for all 7 weeks!  This program is open to current Pre-K (PK4) through 4th grade students.

Our Sha’ar Hebrew immersion program, however, is a seven-week program for campers currently in Pre-K (PK4) through 1st grade since consistency is the foundation of an immersion experience.  More information about the Sha’ar Hebrew immersion program can be found here.

NEW in 2024: We will be offering a technology-based program through The Big Idea for campers currently in 4th – 7th grades.  The Big Idea at Ramah Day Camp will run for two two-week sessions (session dates below).  Campers may attend for one or both sessions.  More information will be available soon about this new and exciting camp option!

Bus transportation from centralized locations in the area is included in camp fees.

Please contact us if you have any questions about your summer dates.

Enrollment Availability

Many of our edot (age groups) are now full in specific sessions – see details below.  If a session you want is full, it will be indicated when you register your child and will automatically place you on the wait list.  No deposit will be charged for a child on the wait list. Families will be notified by email if a spot becomes open for their child(ren).

At this time^, we are full with a waitlist for:

  • Children currently in Pre-K (PK4) for Sessions A, B* & C and Sha’ar Hebrew Immersion
  • Children currently in Kindergarten for Sessions A*, B*, C*, Week 7* and Sha’ar Hebrew Immersion*
  • Children currently in 1st grade for Sessions A, B* & C* and Sha’ar Hebrew Immersion
  • Children currently in 2nd grade for Sessions B & C

We are currently accepting applications for campers currently in grades 3-4 for our general camp program and those currently in grades 4-7 for our BIG IDEA camp program.  To register your child for an available session and/or add them to the waitlist, please submit an application.  Again, families will not be charged a deposit if their child is on the waitlist.

[*- These sessions have longer waitlists. ^-Last updated on February 27, 2024.]

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available, and we do all that we can to make it possible for everyone to experience a summer at Ramah.  Applications for financial aid are made available in your CampMinder account once you complete your camper application.  Scholarship applications are now being reviewed on a rolling basis.  If you have questions about the financial aid process, please contact Sharon Rosenberg Safra, Associate Director.

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).

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 January 15 Full refund (no penalty)
January 16 - March 15 15% of tuition
March 16 - May 15 50% of tuition
After May 15 No refund available
