We intend to open camp this summer while understanding we will likely need to adjust our protocols and procedures to ensure the safest summer possible in 2021. We know that families rely on bus transportation to get their kids to camp. We will do all we can to provide busing for our campers. We promise to continue our pattern of regular, open communication to our camper families regarding how the pandemic may impact camp. Our COVID Updates & FAQ’s page has the most up-to-date information on our plans for 2021.
In a typical summer, the camp day begins and ends at the bus stop. Our counselors have planned programs, games, songs, and cheers to make the bus ride an extension of Camp Ramah itself. Ramah Day Camp provides safe, efficient, and reliable transportation throughout most of the Greater Washington, DC area. Our bus drivers and bus counselors are committed to ensuring a safe, fun and pleasant ride for your campers.
Generally, our morning pick up times are between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. Children arrive home in the afternoon between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m. We will communicate with you if there are significant changes in our timing due to weather or traffic conditions. We are committed to developing the most efficient transportation routes each summer to best serve our community.

- Dupont Circle / West End (DC)
