Tuition & Camp Fees (included in total cost above): “Tuition” includes room, board and programming. “Camp Fees” cover mandatory bus transportation to and from Camp, canteen visits, trips, insurance, Camper e-mail service and a Camp T-shirt. These are not prorated, discounted or refundable. Fees are $600 for full session campers and $400 for one session campers.

Security Fee: This fee covers costs related to our full-time security, providing a safe environment for our campers, staff, and community. The Security Fee is $200 for full session campers and $100 for one session campers.

Luggage delivery is not included in the fees. There will be a separate fee approximately $250 for mandatory roundtrip luggage delivery. The fee is payable to an external company.

Bogrim (Entering 9th grade), Machon (Entering 10th grade), and Gesher (Entering 11th grade) Activity Fee: An additional $495 will be added for each Camper entering ninth through eleventh grade to cover the cost of additional age appropriate in and out of camp activities.

Medical Fee: There is a possibility there will be additional medical and other related costs during summer 2023 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will have a better assessment as the off-season progresses and we will update you with actual cost during the year. We do not anticipate that the fee will exceed $150.

Medication Compliance: All medications (prescription and over-the-counter including nose sprays, inhalers, vitamins, and any other supplements, etc.) must be sent to camp via CampMeds. If you send medication not through CampMeds, without prior authorization from CampMeds and the infirmary (the “Marp”), you will be charged $100 per camper per medication.

Tikvah Program: Beginning in 2023, we will be offering a self-contained program for campers who have a range of intellectual disabilities and developmental delays. This program will provide support for campers who benefit from a modified camp schedule and higher staffing ratio. For more information about how to apply for this program, email elayman@ramahberkshires.org.

Breira B’Ramah Program: We have an inclusion program for campers who benefit from additional support due to Communication Disorders, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, ADHD, or Autism.
