Life at Camp | Camp Ramah Northern California

Life at Camp

Each day is a fun and dynamic adventure at camp.  On a normal day at Camp Ramah in Northern California, campers spend the mornings in their specialty tracks: B’toch Hayam (Ocean Exploration), Al Habama (Performing Arts), or Etgar (Adventure Sports), and the afternoons participating with their friends in exciting electives, including sports, swimming, dance, arts and crafts, and much, much more.  Additionally, during each session all campers participate on a masa, an excursion away from camp organized by specialty track, and then reunite for a fun Shabbat as a camp community.

The dorm building, or bayit, is the camp “house.”  Campers live in dorm rooms with bunkmates of similar age. There are communal bathrooms with separate shower areas on each floor, hang-out spaces, a large communal lounge and of course counselors!  

You will never be bored at camp!  Our sample schedule gives a glimpse of the joyful days you will experience with us.
