Application & Resources

Come and join our staff at Camp Ramah!

Click here to complete the Staff Application online.

If you have any trouble completed our application online, please contact Pamela Kekst.

Here is a PDF of our Reference Form, in case you need it: Staff Application Reference Form

We require three written references from all staff candidates. You may print three copies of the above reference form, OR you may ask your references to write you their own letter of recommendation.  Either method is fine – we provide the above reference form as an aide — you are NOT required to use it. You may turn in your reference forms by mailing or emailing them to the camp office.  We understand that gathering three references can be time-consuming. You may submit your staff application form first, and send the references separately at a later date.
