The Ramah Jerusalem Day Camp offers all sorts of fun activities each day:Dance, Music, Limmud (Learning Jewish values), Drama, and Art fill our days. In addition, we have "Tie Dye Day" and "Yom Tzahal" where campers help encourage families to donate items to Israeli Soldiers and make packages for them.
Special Days at Camp
Once each summer, camp is filled with bouncy castles, water slides, arcade-style games, cotton candy, and more for a special "Yom Kef" -- Fun Day.
Every morning, campers daven together accompanied by spirited guitar and lively singing and praying. 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 swim almost every day at the Ramah Jerusalem Day Camp. An hour in the half Olympic sized pool or the smaller wading pool lets campers cool off without getting too much sun. Counselors play with campers and staff offer swim lessons for non-swimmers and weak swimmers.
Campers at the Ramah Jerusalem Day Camp enjoy weekly trips to areas in and around Jerusalem. Recent trips have included Ammunition Hill, Ein Yael Living Museum, The Bloomfield Science Museum, the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, and local amusement parks.
