Click to report rating    5/6/13   5     5     5     5     5   Best camp ever!!! Ignore all bad comments because I have gone there for 5 years, and they have been the best summers of my life. The counselors are friendly, and the food is great. RID: 44421

     8/21/11   4     5     3     4     4   My two kids went to Ramah Berkshires this Summer (2011), their third and probably final year with Ramah (even though they are young). Why? 1) They aren't any more interested in Judaism and both say they didn't participate in any Jewish activities; 2) They report lots of cursing and inappropriate talk and behavior for ten year olds, even in the presence of counselors; 3) The camp is sports-oriented -- basketball, tennis, etc. and neither of my kids are into organized sports, thus were excluded from many activities. If you have pretty mainstream kids with mainstream interests (like sports) and some Jewish inclination, it's a great camp. If not, there are undoubtedly Jewish camps with less prayer and sports, which would be better choices. RID: 36801

Click to report rating    3/26/11   4     5     4     4     4   Good camp. I am not part of the "popular clique" (very cliquey camp) but I still enjoy it. Chug is the best- especially softball. Probably not the greatest camp ever, but I am enjoying myself and would recommend it RID: 35450

Click to report rating    10/14/10   5     5     4     5     5   The best camp ever! After 6 years and one more left to go, I have to say that this camp is my life! Every year I wait anxiously to get the opportunity to come back. This camp is sort of my obsession and the friends that I have made here are the best friends that I will ever have. Yes, many of the kids who go here are a little bit wealthy, but those who are not still fit in. The only people who get bullied are the freaks (you shouldn't send your kid here if they're socially awkward or have special needs). Everybody acts goofy and fun. The only reason I have a facebook is so that I can talk to people from camp! The camp itself is beautiful and the counselors don't act as authority rather, as friends. Where would I be if I hadn't come back to this camp year after year. The friendships will last forever and I know that my final summer will be incredible. I'm sort of dreading the last day of camp, because it will really be my LAST. On the last day, everybody's eyes are filled with tears. RID: 34238

Click to report rating    1/11/09   1     4     1     1     1   this camp was horrible. every single meal i ate there gave me a belly ache. the faculty did not care that i was home sick and payed more attention to the campers that were happy with the camp then the ones that were upset. i wrote letters home every day saying how much i hated camp. i even had a count down for how many days left of camp there were until i get to go home. a tree fell down on our bunk because of a lightning storm and the girls in my bunk blamed it one me because they were all horrible people and thought that my luck had something to do with it. its a very jappy and stuck up camp and i would never send my child there when i am older. however i must say the campus is beautiful.

Click to report rating    6/22/08   2     3     5     1     2   Some of the staff members are really wonderful people and I became very close to them. Some of them are awful. Ramah Berkshires is a place to go if you are a wealthy jew. I had a really bad experience there and I don't hold it against any one. It can be a great camp if you fit in but if you are alternative in any way or you don't have a lot of money then look somewhere else. RID: 24117

Click to report rating    4/2/08   2     1     3     2     1   This camp is for the rich jappy kids. I found that if you act a bit goofy, dress differently, or do anything slightly out of what they deem to be "ordinary" then you get excluded. A lot of them do not know the meaning of families with a medium sized income, if you can't afford something they think you are bizarre. The counselors are willing to listen but when it comes down to it they don't want anything to do with you. RID: 21888

Click to report rating    1/17/08   1     1     1     1     1   This camp was the worst camp ever. Wendy and the rest of the staff killed USY. I was yelled at constantly for nothing and was told i couldn't call my own mom. It's like a prison. I hated this camp and will never ever go back to ramah, or anything USY related for that matter.

Click to report rating    6/29/07   4     3     3     2     2   This camp really isnt that great unless you are a Jap, because it is really clique-ey. People, not just girls can be real b*****s to you, especially if you look or dress any different than you do. Most campers who enter after the first few years are intentionally excluded from even the not "popular" groups. Most of the staff is pretty nice, but not too caring, except the councillers. Most of the bunks have vermon or bugs of some sort, and are in eh, condition. The food sucks, but there are a lot of competitive sports that are taken seriously. You can go to Ramah Darom for about the same price, and that camp is seriously better. I also have no idea what they are talking about when they say community, because you are only a part of the "community" if you are popular. All in all, I would give this camp a 2.5 average on a scale of 1-5. Not for everyone. RID: 12587

Click to report rating    8/6/06   1     3     3     1     1   The trouble with Ramah is that it operates like the motor vehicle bureau. You can't talk to anyone who's in charge. And when you do, you find that they are not interested in your concerns. I will not send my child there next year. RID: 1843
