8-Week Experience

Shoafim spend the summer honing skills, furthering interests, deepening connections and continuing to master the fine art of having a ridiculous amount of fun.

In this special summer of their Bar and Bat Mitzvah year, they explore their connections to their camp and home communities, take on new responsibilities, and leave camp more mature and self-confident.

Shoafim campers also perform their own musical, and it’s usually the first musical of the summer! Throughout the summer, Shoafim campers organize tzedakah projects and get the whole camp involved in the spirit of giving back in so many creative ways.

*Includes Full Season Incentive. 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
