We are excited to introduce The Yoetz Porch. A place to find social and emotional resources for Camp Ramah Darom families.
During the summer, our yoetzim (advisors) are the backbone of the social-emotional support for our Camp community, providing support to our campers, serving as the parent-liaison to parents and guardians, and educating, training and preparing our counseling staff for the summer.
Each Camp aidah (age group) has a yoetz/et (advisor) assigned to be their go-to for support. Just prior to Camp parents and guardians will receive their camper’s yoetz/et name and contact information for the summer.
Throughout the year, we will be holding a variety of virtual information sessions to help answer all your Camp questions. If you have specific questions or concerns about your child, please reach out to Elana Yeffet, Camper Care Coordinator or click here to scheduling time to speak with a team member.
Below are sources and articles to help support you and your family.
