FAMILY WEEKEND: PASSOVER EDITION
You and your kids will have a sweet and fun-filled time at this early Spring retreat at Ramah Darom in the North Georgia mountains over the weekend of April 1-3. This will be a special family-centered weekend where families with young children can relax, celebrate Shabbat together and connect with each other.
Activities will be specifically geared for little ones, ages 0-5, with plenty of opportunities to be outdoors and connect with nature. With the first Passover Seder starting on April 15, we’ll spend time crafting, cooking, creating, and learning more about the holiday.
There will also be enriching adult experiences, all in a beautiful camp atmosphere that is relaxed and casual.
All attendees must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 prior to arriving on our campus. For children (protocols) See our COVID-19 Prevention Protocols.
We welcome everyone at our events, and invite racially diverse and LGBTQ individuals as well as interfaith couples and families to participate in our programming. If you need any accommodations to fully participate in a program, please let us know on your registration form.
