Fun for the Entire Family at Camp Ramah New England
At Ramah New England’s first ever August, 5-day family camp experience, families enjoyed all that our beautiful overnight campus in Palmer, MA, has to offer: water toys, boating, alpine tower, pinat chayot (farm), outdoor cooking and so much more. A family-focused Shabbat experience that included all the ruach (spirit) of Ramah, a Tot Shabbat program, singing and delicious meals (including Shabbat brownies) was a central part of family camp. This is what some of our participants had to say:
Dina Epstein shared, “We were thrilled to be able to spend several days in our camp-going kids’ “happy place” and to make it a special place for the entire family. It’s a joy as a parent to be able to spend vacation time with the kids (no cooking! no cleaning! the kids are entertained!) while also connecting with other families over roasted marshmallows, lake swims, and heated games of Israeli trivia.”
Esther Cohen recounted, “We chose to participate in Family Camp with no previous experience at any Camp Ramah. We were pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. As our kids are 7 and 9 years old, they met friends from all over New England and DC, and were able to go off with counselors and their friends to enjoy a variety of activities in the lake, athletics field and arts and crafts. As adults, we were able to meet wonderful people and had a blast learning to make mixed drinks, play trivia and hang out with other adults knowing that the kids were being watched by responsible counselors. It was fantastic to have a variety of delicious kosher foods cooked for us 3 times a day and have access to healthy snacks as well throughout the day. We look forward to returning to Family Camp next summer!”
