Ramah Day Camp of Greater Boston

We provide children with the very best camping experience in a setting of love, friendship, wonder and discovery.

At Ramah, we provide children entering grades K-6 with the very best camping experience in a setting of love, friendship, wonder and discovery, and a place where Judaism is integral to daily activities.

Your child’s well-being is our top priority. Our emphasis on camper care distinguishes Ramah as a premier summer experience. We make sure that each camper is safe, happy and secure and that summer will be a time of growth, excitement, learning and fun!

Ramah Boston is hosted at Gann Academy in Waltham, and our campers swim at Bentley University’s Dana Center pool. Gann boasts a world-class facility with modern sports and creative resources, including professional sports courts and fields, a black-box theater, a robust working farm, and a dance studio. We are excited to partner with Gann Food & Dining Services to offer a kid-friendly lunch, with multiple entree options, every day of our summer. The Gann kitchen is nut-free and allergy friendly.

Meet The Director

Rabbi Rachel Silverman

Rabbi Rachel Silverman (she/her) first joined the Camp Ramah New England staff as a Rosh Edah (unit head) at the overnight camp from 2005-2010. Many years later, she’s thrilled to be back as the Director of Ramah Boston, our newest day camp. Rabbi Silverman previously served as a congregational rabbi in both Brookline and Sharon, MA, after receiving her ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2010. When she is not at camp, she is a ceramic artist and enjoys biking, cooking, and gardening. She lives in Sharon, MA, with her husband Josh, their three kids (Anna, Danny, and Benjamin), dog (Abby) and six chickens.
