Daily Program

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 2-3 (depending on their age) new daily bechirot (electives) from a wide range of options. Campers can fill their day with sports, omanut (arts & crafts) or try a variety of different programs. 

Chuggim options may include: teva (garden), drama, bishul (cooking), mada (STEM), rikud (dance), legos, frisbee, volleyball, soccer, and a variety of omanut (arts & crafts) options. 


In addition to our 2-3 daily chuggim (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 Limmud (Jewish learning) 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.

For our oldest campers, entering grades 8 and 9, we offer the MaKoR (Madrichim K’tanim b’Ramah) program. This leadership and counselor-in-training program features opportunities to be both staff and camper. The schedule for a MaKoR participant includes leading activities, participating in activities, and learning how to be a staff person. Our MaKoR program is great training for coming back on staff when you’re older! More info is here
