Camp Ramah in Wisconsin
Conover, Wisconsin
Camp Ramah is 150 acres of magical space, tucked away in the heart of Wisconsin's Northwoods. Within this space, campers and staff from throughout the Midwest and Israel unite each summer to form a very special Jewish community. Together, they experience the joy of overnight camp while leading vibrant Jewish lives. Ramah is a second home where young people learn new skills, gain independence, make lifetime friendships and explore what Judaism can mean in their lives.
