Taste of Ramah
The “Taste of Ramah” program will take place from Monday, July 24th- Sunday, July 30th and is open to current 2nd and 3rd graders. For those of you who may want an extended program for your third grader, you can also choose to attend for a full month.
Daily activities will include sports (children will select from a variety of choices), swimming (both instructional and recreational), water sports (on our beautiful lake), climbing, arts and crafts, woodworking, dance, music, and Judaica and more! The beauty of a Ramah Shabbat crowns each week at camp.
The children live in bunks with two counselors and are supervised by their own Rosh Edah (Division Head). Meals take place in the Chadar Ochel (Dining Hall) with the rest of camp, where everyone experiences the Ramah Ruach (spirit), especially during Shabbat. Each evening campers have specially designed Peulot Erev (evening activities) and the day ends with Peulat Lilah Tov (bed time activity) where their counselors, and other camp staff, share a pre-bedtime story or song with the campers before lights- out.
The Taste of Ramah program includes bus transportation from the Philadelphia area on Monday, taking the children up to camp for a week of fun-filled activities, and conclude on Sunday with a “Taste of Visitors Day” for parents to see what their kids have accomplished. Parents are invited to come to camp from 12 noon to 3pm, participate in an orientation to camp, go on a tour, view a presentation by their children, and stay for lunch with the entire camp.
