The Global Day of Jewish Learning is thrilled to be partnering with Ramah Day Camp in Nyack and Camp Ramah in the Berkshires to offer Camp Ramah at Global Day of Jewish Learning! This program will offer a high quality camp program for ages 3-14.
Drawing from its movement of 9 overnight camps, 4 day camps, and year-round programs, Ramah will bring the magic of a Jewish summer camp experience to the Global Day of Jewish Learning community and create an engaging camp program for your children. Camp Ramah at Global Day of Jewish Learning will offer a fun, safe, and age-appropriate experience for children in pre-k (3 years old) through 8th grade. 
The camp program will include exciting age-appropriate activities such as storytelling, music, art, sports, drama, Hebrew, scavenger hunts, Israeli dancing and more!

Each group will be facilitated by madrichim (counselors) who will plan and facilitate many activities.Madrichim are selected for their prior education experience, special skills, openness and diverse Jewish backgrounds.
Camp Ramah at Global Day of Jewish Learning wishes to accommodate as diverse a group of children as possible at the conference.
