Session 2: July 20 - August 18, 2016. The Tikvah program at Camp Ramah is designed for Jewish adolescents, ages 11-18, with learning, emotional and developmental disabilities. The Tikvah campers, known as the Amitzim group at camp, are included in all the programs at camp. All of the campers come to camp for the same reasons: to have fun, make friends and learn about Jewish things. During the academic hour of the day, a teacher with special education training is able to provide self-contained education to those campers for whom it is more appropriate. A buddy program pairs Tikvah campers with campers from our oldest group. Our program is also designed to increase independent living and self-help skills. An advisor with experience in working with children with special needs is available at all times. Email: tikvah@ramah.org; Phone: (310) 476-8571; Website: http://ramah.org read less
