Grants & Scholarships

First Time Camper Grants

Incentive grants may be available through the One Happy Camper program for campers from certain communities attending Jewish overnight summer camp for the first time, regardless of financial need. After applying and paying your deposit to Ramah in the Rockies, please go to to see if you qualify. First time campers coming from communities without OHC funds may be able to receive a grant through Ramah’s Rishon first time camper program. Funds are extremely limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

Please contact our business manager, Douglas Wolf, at with any questions.

Need-Based Financial Aid

2/13/2017: At this time of year, the Ramah in the Rockies financial aid committee has awarded 100% of the financial aid available.  The OneHappyCamper grant is still availible to those who qualify.

At Ramah in the Rockies, we believe that all Jewish children should have the opportunity to engage in the magic of intentional Jewish living in a rustic outdoor environment. Our financial aid committee will begin distributing the limited financial aid available for the upcoming summer beginning in October 2016.  Please see the 2017 Financial Aid Instruction Letter to begin the process of requesting aid. Please contact our business manager, Douglas Wolf, at with any questions. All requests for financial aid are treated with the highest degree of confidentiality.


The National Ramah Commission and Ramah in the Rockies acknowledges with thanks the generous support of the AVI CHAI Foundation and the Zell Family Foundation in making the Ramah Open Door Program possible.
