Frequently Asked Questions

Why are additional sessions being offered?

We know that families need more flexibility in their lives – and that everyone should have the opportunity to experience all that Ramah has to offer! Whether your camper is with us for one week or for eight, one thing is constant: our commitment to making 2022 the best summer ever.

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.

How will the different session options for 3rd through 6th graders affect the sense of cabin cohesiveness?

Cabins will be made up of peer campers, to help build meaningful Ramah friendships and strong connections between campers and their counselors. Cabins will all participate in their daily eidah (division) activities like swimming, sports and evening programs.

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 program for campers entering 7th through 11th grade will remain 8-weeks for the 2022 season. If you have a specific circumstance precluding full season participation for your camper, please contact Executive Director Jacob Cytryn to discuss flexible arrangements as part of the 8-week program.
