Ramah Tikvah Program at Camp Ramah Darom

The Tikvah Program offers a four-week summer experience for children 12 to 17 years old diagnosed with social and communication difficulties, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Social Anxiety, OCD, PDD, Asperger's Syndrome, and Non-Verbal Learning Disorders. Dr. Audra Kaplan, program director, is a Clinical Psychologist with extensive experience in Jewish camp and in working with children with disabilities. As part of Camp Ramah Darom (Ramah of the South), an award-winning ACA-accredited camp, Tikvah is designed to offer campers the additional staffing and support to experience the magic of Camp Ramah Darom. Ramah Darom's Tikvah Program is the first program in the Southeast focused on providing a traditional, immersive, Jewish summer camping experience to Jewish teenagers with autism spectrum disorder. The program is fully integrated into a community that is steeped in Jewish celebration, learning, and ritual.
