*Family Capital Improvement Fee– This mandatory per family fee is an essential part of the physical facilities of Camp Ramah in the Poconos. Proceeds from this fee go to support the regular maintenance, repair, and renovation of our camp’s physical plant.

**Safety & Security Fee– This mandatory per child fee helps us to support, maintain, and regularly improve our safety and security infrastructure. Over the years we have made significant investments in our security infrastructure and personnel and this fee helps us keeps our campus safe and secure.

Miscellaneous: Luggage costs and Camp Meds charges are additional and are paid by families directly to the vendor.
