Our parents were on staff at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin so we met as “staff brats” at around age 6-7. We were fast friends but there was no “romantic interest” until we were campers several years later.
Ramah couples celebrate simchas every year and we would love to celebrate you! Ramah marriages can be defined in many ways; whether you met your spouse at camp, or simply married another Ramahnik from a different camp, your Ramah matrimony is something special! There are more than six decades worth of wonderful stories. To have your Ramah marriage listed on our website please submit your story.
We met in 1997 as Solelim counselors. We continued to date from that point until 2003 when we married.

Lisa (Columbus, Ohio) spent the summer working at camp before going to Israel to study at the Schechter Institute and Hebrew University.
We met during staff week in 1992. We dated the entire summer and broke up when we went back to school.
Down by the agam? At a staff Peulah? In a quiet pagoda? Nope.
