Camp Ramah's Tikvah Program

Since 1970, Ramah has offered a special program to meet the social and religious needs of developmentally challenged Jewish adolescents.

The Tikvah ("hope") Program provides these youth with the full Ramah experience - swimming, boating, sports, the arts, dance, dramatics, and more - under the supervision of specially trained staff.

Like all Ramah campers, Tikvah campers receive intensive Jewish education that includes Judaic classes, daily religious services, Hebrew language and Bar and Bat Mitzvah training.

Tikvah has evolved into three closely affiliated divisions, based on the age, needs and skills of the individual camper. The general program is known as Amitzim, for youngsters ages 13-18. Our Vocational Education (VocEd) program for young adults ages 18-21 teaches valuable independent living skills and job training in a closely supervised group-home environment. The Post Voc-Ed program employs six to eight Voc-Ed “graduates” in camp jobs that range from guest house managers to child care assistants.

Tikvah campers are fully integrated into camp life, participating in all camp wide programs and daily events - meals, religious services, evening activities and special events. Similarly, the Post Voc-Ed participants are considered staff, and participate fully in staff programs and social events.
