Inclusion is a way of living at Ramah Darom!
Ramah Darom’s Henry and Annette Gibson Tikvah Support Program is designed for 6th-12th-grade campers with neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down syndrome, Intellectual Disability, and Communication Disorder. As part of Camp Ramah Darom, an ACA-accredited residential camping program recognized as a national leader in supporting children with disabilities, we are focused on providing a traditional, immersive, Jewish summer camping experience to Jewish children of all abilities. Through individualized approach and support by highly skilled staff, campers build friendships, gain a sense of autonomy, develop independent living skills, learn problem-solving skills, grow as members of the Ramah Darom community and most importantly, have fun! The Tikvah program enhances the entire camp, enabling us to teach our campers by experience what it means to live in a truly inclusive Jewish community.
