2021 TRAVEL INFORMATION

Like most everything else these days, travel to and from Camp will be different – and admittedly, slightly more complicated – this summer.

Below you will find links to detailed travel information that has been posted. Please click on the appropriate link for your campers. We are asking you to confirm your travel plans on your family dashboard by April 5th (the day after Pesach).

WHAT’S THE SAME THIS YEAR

WHAT’S THE SAME THIS YEAR

  • Campers can fly to/from the Atlanta airport.
  • We will have buses from the Atlanta airport to take campers to/from Camp.
  • We will also have an Atlanta Perimeter drop-off location on closing day of each session.
  • Several communities outside of Atlanta, but within driving distance of Camp, will have a chartered bus on closing day of each session if there is sufficient interest.
WHAT’S DIFFERENT THIS YEAR

WHAT’S DIFFERENT THIS YEAR (due to COVID safety protocols)

  • Ramah Darom staff will not be able to enter the airport in Atlanta, and therefore, not able to meet campers at their gate on opening day OR take campers through security on the way home. We will be relying entirely on parent/guardian volunteers.
  • On opening day of each session, all Atlanta buses will leave from a single location near the Atlanta airport. We will not be offering a Perimeter bus option on opening day this year.
    • All campers arriving by plane, and all local campers, will have a COVID rapid test and lice check before getting on the bus at our airport location.
    • Buses will be primarily organized by Aidah; essentially each kapsula (pod) will begin as soon as the campers board the bus.
  • Drop-offs and pick-ups at Camp will be extremely limited, and parents will not be able to enter the campus
    • As a result, this year we are requiring all Atlanta-based campers (including those from the northern suburbs) to take the bus to/from Camp
  • For communities outside Atlanta but within driving distance of Camp, on opening day we will need to rely on parent carpools. We will only be able to offer chartered buses on closing day.
