DATES & RATES DETAILS

*Campers enrolling for Kochavim (entering 4th grade) who attended Ruach Ramah in summer 2022 will receive a $500 discount off a 2-week session or $900 off a 4-week session in 2023.

**For 75 summers the hallmark of Camp Ramah in Wisconsin has been an 8-week session. This full season experience continues to provide unparalleled opportunities for individual growth, group bonding, and identity formation. The Full Season Incentive recognizes the significant financial commitment that a full 8-week tuition requires. The Full Season Incentive creates a tiered tuition model, by which the first three eight-week summers are discounted through the generous donations of supporters of the camp: 7th grade (Solelim) is discounted $1,500; 8th grade (Shoafim), $1,000; and 9th grade (Bogrim), $500. We remain committed to working with families on how all campers can partake in the Ramah experience, and encourage such families who seek additional flexibility in session length to reach out to our team at enroll@ramahwisconsin.com.**

Chartered buses will be provided at the beginning and end of each session; fees listed are round trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I determine the correct session length for my camper?

We are here to answer your questions and help you find the right session(s) for your camper. Please reach out to any member of our year-round team or to Registrar Margalit Segal.

My campers made great new friends last summer. How can I be sure they will be with their friends again?

As in past summers, campers can complete a cabin request form. We guarantee that your campers will be in a cabin with at least one of their requested friends.

Can campers extend their session once at camp?

Yes! Campers can extend to a longer session, based on availability. For example, a Kochavim camper in camp for a 2-week session can extend to the 4-week session for even more Ramah fun.

Will there be changes in the session length for 7th-11th graders?

Our summer programs for campers entering 7th through 11th grade are 8-weeks. If you have a specific circumstance precluding full season participation for your camper, please contact us at enroll@ramahwisconsin.com to discuss flexible arrangements as part of the 8-week program.
