Camp Ramah, the camping arm of Conservative Judaism, has provided services to children with special needs for over 30 years.
These programs serve Jewish children with developmental delays, intellectual disabilities, autism/Asperger�s Syndrome, Down Syndrome and other conditions that prevent them from succeeding in camp without significant additional supports.
At Camp Ramah in California, Camp Ramah in Canada, Camp Ramah in New England, and Camp Ramah in Wisconsin, Tikvah campers are placed in special programs that allow them to integrate into camp activities whenever possible, with appropriate supports. Camp Ramah in the Berkshires provides Briera B'Ramah for campers with special needs, mainstreaming these campers into camper bunks. Ramah Darom in Georgia offers our newest program, Camp Yofi, a five-day family camp for families of children with autism. In partnership with Keshet, a Chicago-area program for Jewish children with special needs, Ramah Day Camp in Chicago provides services to children with a wide range of disabilities.
