Specialty Activities Special Days at Camp Egalitarian Tefilah Cool in the Pool Field Trips

Specialty Activities

In addition to our full array of regular daily activities, campers at The Ramah Jerusalem Day Camp enjoy a number of specialty activities including tie-dye and chesed activities. Campers also enjoy a bechira (elective) option that allows them to focus on a particular area of interest, learn new skills, and sharpen their abilities.

Special Days at Camp

Special themed days take place throughout the summer, including Yom Tie Dye, Color War, Yom Tzahal (Israeli army day), when campers donate items to Israeli soldiers and make packages for them, and Yom Kef (fun day), when camp is filled with bouncy castles, water slides, and arcade-style games.

Egalitarian Tefilah

Every morning, campers daven together accompanied by spirited guitar and lively singing. A special siddur shows pre-readers the central themes of each prayer, and older campers can follow along. Campers who have reached bar or bat mitzvah age are encouraged to lay tefillin.

Cool in the Pool

Campers enjoy one hour of free swim almost every day at the Ramah Jerusalem Day Camp. Our half-Olympic-sized pool and smaller wading pool let campers cool off during a busy camp day. Instructional swim time is also available.

Field Trips

Campers at the Ramah Jerusalem Day Camp enjoy weekly trips to areas in and around Jerusalem, including sites such as Ammunition Hill, Ein Yael Living Museum, The Bloomfield Science Museum, the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, and local amusement parks.

The snow that fell in Jerusalem might be slight by the standards of Camp Ramah in Canada, Camp Ramah in New England, Camp Ramah in Wisconsin, Ramah Outdoor Adventure at Ramah in the Rockies, Camp Ramah in the Poconos, and Camp Ramah in the Berkshires, but it was still enjoyed by many Israelis!
