The Board of Trustees of Camp Ramah in the Berkshires as well as the professional staff of Camp believe that Ramah should be accessible to every family who wants to be a part of our community. We understand that the cost of camp can seem to be a high hurdle and we will do everything we can to lower that hurdle. We strive to make our financial assistance process simple, smooth and responsive to you.
Our 2018 financial assistance process is now open. Camp Ramah in the Berkshires uses the FACTS system to collect data and to manage the requested information. This data and information will be kept strictly confidential. Your application will only be seen by the financial assistance committee. You can begin the FACTS application here. Please select the 2018-2019 term for Summer 2018.
We have a rolling financial assistance process: completed applications received by January 31st will receive a response by February 15th. Thereafter, financial assistance applications will take approximately two weeks to process and we will send out award notifications on the 1st of March. We hope that by defining our process and clarifying the expectations, we can help reduce the stress of the application process.
Please note that a camper application must be submitted in addition to the FACTS application.
If you have any questions about the financial assistance process, please do not hesitate to be in touch with our Assistant Business Manager Adina Rothman or by phone at (201) 871-7262 ext 102. Our director, Rabbi Ethan Linden, is also available to discuss our commitment to working with families to assure that every child who wants a Ramah experience can join our special community.
