Description

At Camp Ramah we promote a culture of innovation when it comes to programming for your child. Your child will experience creative, experiential, and just plain off-the-wall fun programming as part of their camp experience.

Ramah Poconos represents a truly unique approach to the Jewish Summer Camp experience. In order to properly care for over 500 campers, we employ over 225 staff members who are committed to our mission of inspiring each child to become their best selves. Our energetic and talented staff members are largely products of our camp itself.

Camp is about creating a community. Your child’s social experience is among our highest priorities. Our counselors, senior staff, and adult advisors ensure several layers of camper care for each and every child in our community. Your child will experience the immense joy of feeling a part of a bunk, age group, and camp as a whole. They will no doubt make life-long friends at Camp Ramah in the Poconos!
