The environment at Camp Ramah in the Berkshires encourages independence, social development and behavior awareness. Camp Breira B�Ramah is a 4-week camping program designed for campers with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and other related social and learning disabilities. The campers, entering grades 4-7, are integrated as much as possible into the regular camp program. Campers develop individual relationships with Breira staff who utilize a variety of cognitive and behavioral techniques to enhance their success in camp. Professional staff work closely with specially trained counselors in this program.
Campers entering fourth grade can enroll for either first or second session. Campers entering fifth through eighth grades can opt for either single session or the entire season, which is especially helpful for those trying out sleep-away camp for the first time.
Campers entering tenth grade in our Machon division enjoy at least two extended trips out of camp. Past summers have included trips to Baltimore, Pennsylvania, Niagara Falls and Montreal.
Our oldest campers, entering eleventh grade in our Gesher division learn important leadership skills, spending time as CIT�s by helping our youngest campers with their daily activities. CIT/leadership training is part of a Gesher camper�s regular schedule.
