Camp Ramah is committed to serving a diverse population. We feel strongly that the Ramah experience should be made available to every family, regardless of their capacity to pay. We have a generous scholarship program and raise a significant amount of money each year in order to accommodate as many scholarship requests as possible. Be sure to inquire with your synagogue and school, as many of our community partners also have scholarship programs or financial incentives for first-time Ramah campers.

We are excited to announce that for Summer 2023, we will be offering TWO Ramah Scholarship options. 

Option #1 — New Pilot for 2023 – The Ramah Access Program

This new pilot program is designed to streamline and simplify the scholarship application process. It will enhance financial accessibility and help address the financial burden faced by many families in providing their children with a Camp Ramah in Canada experience. It offers tuition relief to families with incomes between $200,000 to $300,000 CDN. Discounts will be 15% for the first child, 20% for any additional children. Funds for this program are limited.

Families should apply for this program if:

  • Your income is between $200,000 to $300,000 CDN

Option #2: The Ramah Scholarship program

Families should apply for this program if:

  • Your income is between $200,000 to $300,000 CDN, but a 15% discount is not enough
  • Your income is below $200,000 or greater than $300,000 CDN
