Our Activities

Located in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin, Camp Ramah offers children ages 9-16 an opportunity to feel a part of the “great outdoors.” Campers swim in Lake Buckatabon, hike in the surrounding woods and explore the bog located within the borders of our camp property.

In addition to formal Hebrew and Judaic classes, each camper chooses from the following activities designed to teach new skills, build abilities and increase self-esteem.
