Camp Ramaquois is simply the best. The transition that I witnessed my kids go through this summer was incredible.
Their behavior, stamina, and overall demeanor changed- which has lent itself to a fantastic year at school.
Watching my 6 year old pass his deep water test and my 4 year old calm her fears and go down the zip-line was worth its weight in gold. Could not imagine spending our summers anywhere else!!!
If you are looking for a REAL American Camp experience, look no further. We have lived overseas for 12 years and summers are spent at Ramaquois so my girls can experience a true camp experience. I told my husband the day they came home cheering and singing camp songs, my mission was accomplished. They were in the right place. A happy place. A safe place. A camp beyond others.
Go see for yourself. It’s what you see/envision in the movies. Beautiful grounds, happy kids walking along, cheering for their teams, the lake, the pools, the sports, the food (yes, your kid will eat well!) and oh did I mention the friendships….camp friendships are special and forever! When I was 16 I was a counselor there and met another counselor who became my college roommate and to date, we are still the best of friends. That’s Camp Ramaquois. It’s a kid’s dream camp. They are very in tune with what kids want to do each year and even ahead of its time, but still keeping to the old school philosophy of “Let’s have fun and be free, it’s CAMP!” There is something for everyone there. Too bad it’s not all year long!
“Camp Ramaquois has been a life-saver for me. I wanted to give my son the experience that I had at sleep away camp as a child but wanted him to be close, he was too young to go far from me. I searched high and low and found Camp Ramaquois. Everyday he came home from camp with a huge smile on his face!
Every year he is placed with the same group of friends and they learn and grow together. It builds a family experience for them that keeps growing each year. When I asked my son what his favorite thing to do at camp, his answer, “Everything!” He loves the zipline, boating, gaga, Water Carnival, Carnival, Snow in the Summer, swim instruction, and so much more…
I also love how the camp is kept up-to-date, the facilities are immaculate, food services are great and I love the team of counselors that surround my son with love, attention and fun each day! Thank you Camp Ramaquois for giving me all I need to make me feel like my son is safe and having fun all summer long!”
Best day camp EVER! An escape for our NYC city kids to have a summer of green, fresh air & friendship. The most special and beautiful place to call home for the summer.
You can’t get any better than Ramaquois! From the first moment we visited, we knew this was the place where we wanted our 3 sons to spend their summer days. And we have never regretted our decision. Amazing staff that goes above and beyond to make the children feel like family. An incredibly engaging schedule that promotes friendship, confidence and creativity. Fantastic food options with meticulous attention to cleanliness and allergies (which one of our sons has).
They have it all covered from A to Z. I couldn’t be more pleased with the camp experience they provide. My kids spend the entire fall/winter/spring talking about how they can’t wait to go back. Ramaquois rocks!
My kids say Ramaquois is their happiest place on earth!! It is incredibly well run! I love that while it offers every activity imaginable in the most beautiful setting, there is also an emphasis on teaching good values. Good sportsmanship, kindness, teamwork are just a few of the important lessons that are woven into every Ramaquois day. My kids are encouraged to try new things and they end each summer with more confidence and independence. It’s just amazing! At Ramaquois, I know my kids are in the best hands… making memories that will last a lifetime.
My son has now spent the last two summers at Ramaquois and my daughter will be beginning summer camp there this upcoming summer. Ramaquois is a wonderful place! We have been so impressed with the extensive amount of activities offered to the children as well as the thorough and friendly staff that have made our experience such a pleasure. Everyone who works at Ramaquois is committed to making sure the camp remains in outstanding condition. The grounds are kept immaculate and there is never a shortage of excitement. I know my children will grow up with the best of memories of their days at day camp.
My rambunctious 9 year old son and my timid 5 year old daughter both bounced off the bus with total delight and stories to tell for days! Thank you Ramaquois for many, many amazing summers and counting!
Ramaquois is the best camp. First time my son went, we were a bag of nerves, but the moment he stepped off the bus we knew we hit the jackpot. He was smiling from ear to ear, biggest smile ever (more than Hanukkah and Christmas combined). Now we took my daughter to Fall Preview Day and she wants summer to be tomorrow. The staff is beyond wonderful… they they don’t miss a beat and think of everything to make sure our kids are happy and safe. Worth every penny.
My two children went to Ramaquois for many years and had the most magical experiences. Every day is exciting and fun - between all the incredible sports, arts, swimming, and other activities. My children also have food allergies, and I felt safe sending them to Ramaquois as the camp is run so well and they are meticulous about every detail. I couldn’t recommend it more highly!
We LOVE this place!! My children have made incredible friends. The activities are phenomenal, and the staff is caring and qualified. The facilities are amazing, and the grounds are beautiful. Most importantly, this camp has heart. They take their role in your child’s development very seriously. Friendship, respect for others, building confidence, etc. are built into every activity, every day. We couldn’t have found a better summer camp for our children.
Camp Ramaquois is AMAZING. It was my kids’ first year, and from the first phone call- they could not do enough to guide us and make us feel so comfortable. This continued throughout the entire summer. My kids had THE BEST summer. The camp has EVERYTHING for EVERYONE! My kids were happy as can be, had great experiences and met really nice kids. The counselors were stellar. I have never had such incredible communication from a camp they didn’t miss a beat- EVER! I cannot say enough about Camp Ramaquois! 5 stars!
A “hidden” gem. Only about 40 minutes from NYC your kids are transported to a camp that is truly 5 stars! Not only is it a gorgeous setting but the staff is totally invested in having your campers have an amazing experience! It truly is a day camp that is like a Sleep-Away camp, with the range of activities and they are always adding to them. There is truly something for every kid, which makes it a great solution if you have kids with different strengths. The staff is amazing like I mentioned, and is great at communicating, giving you updates, or contacting you immediately if you had any concerns. Lunch is provided and happens to be delicious! There are trips for older campers so that they get a little taste of an overnight experience. Tthere is nothing like it out there, a truly special place.
We're proud to be considered
one of the best day camps in New York!
