Ramah Day Camp
Located on the Mandell Education Campus in Elkins Park, PA, our beautiful outdoor campus is equipped with sports fields, basketball courts, gaga courts, and multiple playgrounds. We have two pools, including an Olympic size pool for older campers. We have the added benefit of indoor air-conditioned facilities and a fabulous gymnasium.
The Ramah Day Camp offers a strong athletic program and a dynamic creative arts program, within an exciting, nurturing Jewish environment. Campers explore their interests and talents, expand their creativity and learn new skills.
Campers participate in a wide variety of developmentally tailored daily activities including sports, swimming, nature/outdoor adventure, team building activities, visual arts and performing arts. They enjoy playing, laughing, and talking with their Ramah extended family as they go about the camp day. Creative opportunities for Jewish living and learning infuse our camp experience. Additionally, our summer calendar is filled with special events such as trips, overnights/undernights, sports days, concerts and Yom Yisrael, a day celebrating Israel.
Our talented staff consists of dedicated, energetic counselors, specialists and professional educators. We provide intensive staff training focused on child development, group dynamics, programming skills, Jewish education, and health and safety. Our staff members serve as positive Jewish role models. The friendships formed, and memories made, bring campers and staff back year after year.
Ramah Day Camp serves children in pre-k through 7th grade, with specialized leadership training programs for 6th through 10th graders. Our full summer session lasts for eight weeks. Four and six week options are also available.
