Camp Ramah Darom
Welcome to a place where laughter abounds, where friendships are formed, where everyone feels welcome and where each day brings new opportunities to celebrate Jewish life. Welcome to Ramah Darom and check out Ramah Darom at Home.
Camp Ramah Darom offers outstanding athletics and arts programs and infuses a love of Israeli culture and Jewish heritage into everything we do. Guided by caring, experienced staff, children are challenged to reach new heights, supported in their growth, and afforded opportunities to pursue their interests and dreams.
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest, Ramah Darom is a welcoming place that offers experiential Jewish programs for all ages throughout the year. In the summer, young campers at Camp Ramah Darom have transformative Jewish experiences: they learn new skills, forge identity, gain independence and build lifelong friendships. During the year, Ramah Darom Retreats at the Kaplan Mitchell Retreat Center offer adults and families the chance to explore, learn, create, connect, build community and further their passions and interests through a Jewish lens. Our breathtaking 185-acre kosher campus is also available for rentals from mid-August through May for synagogues, schools, community and corporate groups and celebrations.
We invite you to explore our website to discover more about us and the magic of Ramah Darom. Watch Camp videos, meet the Camp leadership, and read a message from the Director, Geoff Menkowitz below. Schedule a tour of our Clayton campus, download a Camp brochure and contact us directly for more information.
Since 1997, we have watched children grow from timid first-time campers into confident young adults who are now becoming leaders in their own communities. Ramah Darom is a place where children have fun, learn new skills, gain independence and build lifelong friendships. In this space, campers from the Southeast join together with staff members from around the United States and Israel to create an exceptional Jewish community.
I look forward to meeting your camper this summer and becoming your partner in nurturing their growth. See you at Ramah Darom!
Director, Camp Ramah Darom
“We live in a generation where we problem-solve for our kids and mediate for them constantly. My child learned this summer at camp to navigate his own social, emotional and physical issues. I can’t think of a better place than camp to learn those life skills and I can’t think of a better gift to my child!”
