Activities

Ramaquois activities are carefully selected and designed to meet our camp’s mission and goals. They must also be FUN!

Program

The Ramaquois program is designed to be age appropriate for every camper. Each year, new activities and options are added. We run a traditional camp program with a blend of athletic and non-athletic activities. As campers get older, they have more opportunities to customize their camp experience by choosing one elective period per day.

Adventure

Adventure activities teach our campers to overcome obstacles, be resilient, work as a team and appreciate the outdoors.

Athletics

At athletic activities, our campers acquire new skills, exercise, and most importantly learn sportsmanship and the value of being a good teammate.

Crafts & Culture

Craft activities provide our campers with a fun way to express their individuality. Our craft specialists encourage and celebrate the creativity of our campers!

Cultural activities are a chance for campers to show off their unique talents, follow their passion, try something different, and embrace new ideas (while having fun!)

Trips

Through our Adventure Trip Program, campers entering grades 3 – 10 have the option to travel to new places, try different experiences, and form strong bonds with their friends.

Community

All of our programs and activities are designed to promote a strong sense of community among our campers. Our goal is for campers to truly feel like Ramaquois is their second home, and their friends and counselors are part of their family.

Ramaquois by the Numbers

Camp Ramaquois is located on 44 scenic acres, set majestically against the Ramapo Mountains and Harriman State Park. There are over 50 buildings on the campus, including air-conditioned facilities such as the gymnasium, movie theater, workshops, craft areas and dining hall. We also have group bunks, complete with bathrooms and cubbies for personal belongings.

The best thing about Ramaquois was that as I got older, the program always changed so that it was new and exciting! I started when I was 4, and stayed until I was 15 and I never got bored! Best summers ever!!!
