COVID-19 Communication Updates

We hope this message finds your family healthy and safe amidst the difficult times in which we find ourselves. We will continue to update our community regularly to best support our families. If your family is in need of additional support to deal with these trying times, feel free to reach out to Monica Shapiro, our Director of Camper Care at, or Rabbi Sarah at  We are here to help you in any way we can.

At this point we are still planning to operate camp this summer, while knowing that the situation remains very dynamic and may change in the coming weeks.  We know how much our campers and staff are looking forward to seeing their camp friends and getting to the Galim beach. As we continue to communicate with our local public health departments, medical professionals, and the wider camp community, we will keep our families updated through emails and on this page.  We will begin to make final decisions about the summer in May. Please click on the Show Update Posts for more specific information about camp and to see our email updates for our camp community.

Financial Assistance

Program Protector Insurance

We are recommending that camp families consider purchasing program cancellation insurance. This insurance protects families in the case that a family decides not to send a child to camp this summer, and camp is still operating. We suggest the “cancel for any reason” option offered by our partners at:

Refund Policy

If we need to cancel any sessions of camp for the summer, Camp Ramah in Northern California remains committed to offering refunds to families for 100% of their paid tuition.
