For nearly 50 years, Camp Ramah in Wisconsin has proudly welcomed campers with unique challenges and disabilities as part of Tikvah and Atzmayim.
During the 2021 season, we successfully piloted a new approach to inclusion we call Shiluv (integration) that is a continuation of gradual changes made to our programs over the last decade in ongoing dialogue with camper families and experts in special education.
Shiluv provides opportunities for campers with various types of challenges and disabilities to live in cabins with their peers. Campers receive additional staff supervision and participate in the day-to-day life of their eidah (age group), which enhances our entire camp community. During our camper intake process, we work with families to develop individually tailored plans for each camper based on each child’s specific needs for a successful summer at camp.
For information on Shiluv, please contact our Director of Camper Care and Inclusion, Lauren Mindel, at email@example.com
Camp Ramah is dedicated to supporting a diverse array of needs for our campers, families, and staff
