Accommodations

Standard Bunk

This is the classic camp experience! You’ll be staying in one of our regular camper bunks. The only difference is, you’ll have it all to yourself! Each family, no matter how big or small, will have an entire bunk to themselves. You’ll notice there’s lots of room, and you probably won’t use the whole thing. That’s okay, enjoy it! Details

  • Private bathroom with toilets, showers, and sinks indoors. (We don’t have any “shower houses” at Ramah).
  • Electricity, including overhead lights and plenty of outlets
  • Twin bunk beds. 
  • No heating or air conditioning – we will provide fans and recommend that you bring layers to wear at night; it could get chilly!
