The Conservative movement’s Ramah camp network is opening a new overnight camp in northern California.
Camp Ramah in Northern California will open in summer 2016, the National Ramah Commission announced in a news release. In addition to offering standard Jewish camp activities, the new camp will offer specialties in performing arts, outdoor adventure and marine biology.
The camp will be the ninth Ramah overnight camp in North America and the second in California. Ramah says its programs serve more than 10,000 children, teens and young adults annually.
Approximately 70,000 young people participated in nonprofit Jewish summer camps in North America last year, according to JData, a Brandeis University program that tracks data from Jewish educational institutions.
