LUGGAGE

Families have a variety of options regarding transportation of luggage to camp. Please read below for additional information, and reach out to info@ramahpoconos.org with any questions.

ARRIVAL BY PARENT CAR

If you are driving your child to camp, please have your child’s belongings packed and labeled with their name and tzrif (bunk), so the luggage can be transported to your child’s tzrif (bunk) by our staff. You will be given directions regarding where to drop their bags upon arrival. In order to keep our campers safe, the road to camp is closed to vehicles.

SHIPPING OPTIONS

Families are responsible for coordinating transportation of luggage to and from camp.

Luggage Delivery Service for Summer 2024

Dear Camp Ramah Poconos Families,

We are thrilled to partner with Camp Ramah in the Poconos to help provide your children with a fun and meaningful summer. I spent twelve summers at Ramah Poconos as a camper, counselor, and served for several years on its Board of Directors. Needless to say, Ramah holds a special place in my heart.

We are pleased to offer a variety of options for luggage delivery. Please choose the option that works best for your family:

  1. Concierge, Door-to-Door service - we will pick-up at your house, office, or wherever else is convenient
  2. Centralized Pick-Up/Drop-Off - this is similar to camper busing location, where luggage is picked-up or dropped-off at centralized locations.
  3. A hybrid option of the two - i.e. door-to-door pick-up one-way + centralized drop-off the other.

Please register online by April 15th on our website: www.doorvadoor.com to take advantage of discounted, Early Bird pricing! All campers and staff must be registered by June 1st.

Our pricing, dates of service, and centralized locations are below. Additional questions? Please visit our FAQ page at: www.doorvadoor.com/faq/ or email us at: support@doorvadoor.com

We all have baggage.

With gratitude,

Josh Romirowsky (Gesher ‘97)

Door-va-Door Trucking

p.s. A portion of all revenue will be donated to Camp Ramah’s scholarship fund so that more families can experience the magic of camp. L’dor Va’dor!
