Ramah Day Camp Greater Boston
Announcing our 2022 One-Week Pilot Program!
Renowned for its overnight camp in Palmer, MA, and successful day camp outside Washington, DC, Ramah New England is excited to bring the Ramah day camp experience to Greater Boston — Ramah Day Camp Greater Boston.
The inaugural program will run the week of August 15-19, and serve kids who just completed grades Pre-K-3, with plans to expand to serve a wider age-range in future summers. Ramah New England is thrilled to be hosted by Gann Academy for this pilot utilizing an incredible space in the Boston Jewish community.
Why Choose Ramah?
This one-week program will provide children who just completed grades K-3 with the very best camping experience in a setting of friendship, wonder and discovery, and a place where Judaism is integral to daily activities.
Your child’s well-being is our top priority. Our emphasis on camper care distinguishes Ramah as a premier summer experience. We make sure that each camper is safe, happy and secure and that their Ramah experience will be a time of growth, excitement, learning and fun!
At Ramah, we believe in a well-rounded camp program, exposing our campers to sports, arts, and outdoor education. This one week program will offer campers the opportunity to pick from a variety of activities encouraging them to learn new skills, participate in activities that they know and love, and experience the magic of Ramah.
Everything that we do is wrapped up in a joyous Jewish experience. At Ramah, campers learn about Judaism, Israel, t’fillah (prayer), Hebrew, and so much more, simply by having fun at camp.
Campers join us with a variety of backgrounds in Jewish education, and our program is designed to help everyone feel instantly at home.

The pilot program will be led by Leora Kimmel Greene, an energetic, detail-oriented event and project manager with a deep love and commitment to Camp Ramah and the Boston Jewish community.

She and her husband met at Camp Ramah New England in beautiful Palmer, MA, and currently live in West Roxbury with their two daughters.
