  • For kayitz 2019, we have combined tuition & fees into one tuition amount, as listed above.
  • Additionally, in response to input from our camp parents, we have removed the suggested annual donation from our tuition statements. Each year, Camp Ramah provides over $500,000 in scholarships to more than 250 campers. The support of our parents is vital to our ability to provide this level of financial aid. We look forward to being in touch with our families in the fall to ask for your support to ensure that Camp Ramah can continue to give all of our campers an exceptional Jewish experience.
  • Tuition does not include the cost of baggage shipment, camper transportation to and from camp or medical expenses.
  • A $900 deposit is required per camper with each application.

October 1, 2018: Early Registration offer ends.
March 1, 2019: Tuition is due in full.

Our Kochavim two-week “taste of Ramah” mini-sessions are open to children currently in second and third grades (so entering third or fourth grades after the summer).

Scholarships

In partnership with local communities, Camp Ramah in New England is committed to ensuring 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. The online Camp Ramah in New England scholarship application is available through FACTS Management, Grants and Aid Assessment Service here.

Scholarship Applications are due by January 15th, 2018.  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, 2018.

Refund Policy

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:
