Thank you so much for your interest in joining our 2013 summer program. What follows is a series of important pieces of information as you start the application process. The link to the camper application can be found at the bottom of this page.
Summer 2013 will be awesome! Each year we work hard to make every summer better than the one before. Each year we introduce many new programs, for example; our flag football chug, featured guest instructors in areas like basketball and music, our brand new organic garden and outdoor cooking, as well as our enhanced ropes course. The positive feedback on our 2012 summer has already been overwhelming, and in the coming months we will use the feedback we collect from our 2012 families to further strengthen our program.
Our 2013 schedule is:
||Fall 2013 Grade
|Gesher A||3rd - 4th||June 18 - July 1|
|Gesher B||4th - 5th||July 2 - July 15|
|Gesher C||3rd - 4th||July 18 - July 31|
|Gesher D||4th - 5th||August 1 - August 14|
|Sessions||Fall 2013 Grade||Dates|
|Session 1||4th - 10th||June 18 - July 15|
|Session 2||4th - 10th||July 18 - August 14|
|Session 1||June 19 - July 15|
|Session 2||July 19 - August 14|
Carefully note the dates of the session you select to ensure your camper(s) will be able to be at camp for the full session. Campers should not come late or leave early for summer school, vacations or other commitments. We are aware that in some cases the end of the Spring semester or start of the Fall semester conflict with the camp schedule by a couple of days. We can accommodate families with these conflicts by extending a short window of flexibility for late arrivals or early departures that still allows campers to be with us for all Shabbatot. Please be in touch immediately so that, if possible, these special arrangements may be made. If you plan to attend both 1st and 2nd session (8 weeks) please be aware of our intersession from July 15th to July 18th during which your child will need to leave camp.
Take Advantage of Discounted 2013 Fees!!!
• Sibling Discount: Enrolling more than one child in your family? Save $75 per additional child.
Discounts will be noted on your account if paid in full at the time of enrollment or applied at the end of the payment plan. In addition to these discounts, Camp Ramah in California is once again planning to meet the financial needs of our camp families through our scholarship process. Furthermore, please help us spread the word to first time families and/or campers that we will continue to offer great campership incentives.

How to Register:
• Below is the link to the ONLINE application.
Please complete all required sections of the application. Applications will only be processed if they are complete with signatures (A Joint Custody Agreement must be completed for divorced families) and include all payment information.
• If you select a check payment or payment plan, please be sure to send your check(s) payable to Camp Ramah in California.
**Please note a change to this years enrollment process. If you are setting up a payment plan or are applying for financial aid a deposit is required with your application. No campers will be enrolled without a payment in full or a deposit with payment plan. Specific details are found on the Billing page of the camper application.
Families seeking financial assistance should read below for more information.
Financial Assistance: In an effort to simplify our Financial Aid process and make awards available sooner than ever before, we have made some significant changes. All Financial Aid applications (writable PDFs) are available online under the Resource Tab click here. You no longer need to provide the current year tax returns, we simply require that you provide the previous two years of tax returns and the current year W-2 Form. The application and all 2010 & 2011 documents must be submitted with camper application (one per family). 2012 W-2 forms are due to our office no later than January 20, 2013 to complete the application.
Cancellations: The Ramah cancellation and change to enrollment policy is as follows:
1. All cancellations or changes must be submitted online through the Ramah website (www.ramah.org/re_forms.php). PHONE REQUEST for changes cannot be honored. All fees are refundable less the following NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-TRANSFERABLE administrative fees:
|Session||September 2012 - December 31, 2012||January 1, 2013 - April 1, 2013|

2. Administrative fees will be charged for all withdrawn campers.
3. There will be no tuition refunds granted after April 1, 2013.

In fairness to other families, please enroll only for the session you plan to attend. If you enroll for two sessions and subsequently drop a session, you will be charged a full cancellation fee for the session you drop (i.e. cancellation fees CANNOT be applied to the other session). Please contact our office during business hours, if you have questions before you start the application or while filling out the form.
