That early experience with Camp Ramah came to mind when reading this recent piece by Rabbi Elyssa Joy Auster, who discussed her surprise that the girls at a different Ramah camp were neither interested in wearing kippot nor expected to.
Rabbi Auster goes so far as to say that it reflects a lack of support for women as religious leaders and for developing female lay leadership.

Over the prior three years, she held the pulpit of a Reform congregation in Alaska, while finishing her rabbinic studies. She has also served as rabbi, cantor, and Jewish educator in Massachusetts, Illinois, Ohio, and Maryland. After completing a BA at Brandeis University and a Masters of Theological Studies at Boston University School of Theology (where she studied alongside those entering the Methodist ministry), Rabbi Elyssa went on to pursue her love of God and Torah in the rabbinate. She received rabbinic smicha and a Masters of Jewish Education from pluralistic Hebrew College in Newton, Massachusetts. Rabbi Elyssa has published in "The Forward" and in "eJewish Philanthropy," is a trained mikveh guide, has led Hallel with Women of the Wall in Jerusalem, and has two children's books she wrote and illustrated and hopes to publish. She was a "rabbi on the road" for the Institute of Southern Jewish Life, is a recent USCJ two-time grant winner for Young Adult programming, an innovator in prayer services, and a teacher of contemplative Judaism in diverse venues from college campuses to the OHALAH Clergy Association conference. Rabbi Elyssa Joy Auster aims to bring moments of meaning and purpose into our lives. She has a passionate love for the Holy One which manifests through song, yoga, meditation, Torah study, crafting tallitot and tzitzit, painting, and nurturing deep human connections.
