Camp Ramah in the Berkshires campers enjoy swimming, boating and water play on beautiful Lake Ellis. Our instructors are certified in American Red Cross Lifeguarding, Waterfront Lifeguarding, CPR/AED, and First Aid. Certification through Starfish Aquatics Institute Starfish Swimming Instructor Program provides ongoing training for our swim staff throughout the summer from a Starfish Swimming Instructor Trainer.

We teach swimming daily to our six younger divisions and offer our oldest campers the opportunity to become certified in American Red Cross Lifeguarding by our certified Lifeguard Instructors.

In addition to swimming, we teach boating, stand-up paddle boarding, and logrolling. Each bunk also schedules playing time on our inflatable water toys.
