Ramah also ensures that 100 campers with disabilities can depend on the firm support of our TikvahProgram. Each year, we ask our parents to join others in our community to make philanthropic contributions to ensure that Ramah New England is available to everyone.  We look forward to being in touch with our families in the fall to ask for your support to ensure that Ramah can continue to provide all campers an exceptional Jewish experience.

Scholarships

In partnership with local communities, we are committed that no child will be denied the Ramah experience due to financial need.  Sources of possible financial assistance include your synagogue and local Jewish Federation.  Consult your Rabbi or Federation regarding these scholarships.  As a supplement to this assistance, scholarship funds are available from Camp Ramah in New England.  Scholarship applications are available in November through FACTS Management, Grants and Aid Assessment Service here.

Scholarship Applications are due by January 18th, 2020.  At that point, the scholarship committee meets to begin to disburse the available funds and will continue to do so until funds are spent.  We do reserve some funding for new campers who apply after January 15th.  If you are a returning family who applies after the deadline, please submit your application as soon as possible and we will do our best to meet your needs as funding permits.  Please feel free to contact our office for more information.

Payment Options

MasterCard and VISA payments (minimum of $900 up to payment in full) will be accepted for the registration deposit without a fee.  All additional credit card payments will be subject to a 2.25% convenience fee. Payment options are available. Details will be sent with your first statement. Full payment of all charges is due by March 1, 2019.

We must have notification in writing if you find it necessary to withdraw your child before the start of camp.  We will then refund your payment less the following administrative fees:
