Safety - Safety first, Ruach second Safety is our guiding principle, followed closely by all the elements that make up our camp’s ruach (spirit). Keeping our chanichim (campers) and tzevet (staff) healthy and protected will guide us in making decisions for what we can and can’t do, and how we may need to adjust along the way. We will continue to work with our medical committee, our COVID task force, and local and state governments to help guide our planning.
Essence - The essence is most essential Our focus this summer is to GET KIDS TO CAMP - in one space, away from technology, and playing together. We won’t compromise our wonderful education and programming, but our primary focus and goal will be to maintain the ESSENCE of camp and togetherness.
Together - We are stronger together We are committed to keeping our community connected and keeping the spirit of Ramah alive. As we have done since March, we are thinking about how to give meaning to our families, campers, and staff during these difficult times, in a Ramah way. We recognize that a summer away from camp with a 22-month gap, as opposed to a 10-month gap between summers, requires a greater need for connectedness.
- We've frozen our rates at 2020 levels, and they won't change throughout the year. At this difficult time, we want to make camp accessible to all, so we will maintain these rates all year long. However, we encourage all who are planning to enroll and are able to so early.
- Enrolling early is an investment in camp. it allows us to anticipate enrollment number and income so were can plan for a super summer, maintain our year-round team, hire exceptional staff early if the ball season before other opportunities open up for them, and plan programming and materials better. Help us have the best summer ever - enroll now!
- The earlier you register, the longer you will have to pay and, therefore the lower your monthly payment will be. Camp fees need to be paid in full by June 1st, so enrolling now will make a real difference
- Even if you cant start making payments right away, we want you to know that we are here to work with you and create a plan that reflects your circumstance.
Peace of Mind
- Not only does enrolling early check a box off of your to-do list, but it allows you to secure your child's spot for Kayitz 2021. While we are planning to operate at full capacity, we are aware that for safety reasons or by state mandate, it could be necessary to have a smaller number of campers per session. In that event, enrollment will be determined by the order that applications were received. You'll feel at ease knowing your application came in early.
- Enrolling for camp takes some uncertainty out of this uncertain time. It's simply good for the soul for you and your child to have something to look forward to and to focus on a summer together rather than the one we missed.
For in-person gatherings, we are dreaming and yearning for this possibility during the winter or spring. Of course, this hinges on approval and guidance from the county and state. If we get permission, we’ve already got some ideas in mind and you’ll be the first to know!
