Boys’ Side, known as The Pride, is the home for our boys entering 10th grade. Campers are encouraged to take pride in their effort, show sportsmanship, be supportive, and take healthy risks. CAP Boys spend half the day as campers and the other half interning with Ramaquois staff members.
I cannot begin to express the wonderful atmosphere of Ramaquois. This past summer was my first, and certainly won’t be my last. It was amazing to see my campers learn new things and smile everyday. I’ve found my second home.
Boys’ Side provides endless opportunities for campers to try new things and challenge themselves in athletics, crafts, adventure activities, cultural experiences, and even in the lunchroom. Ultimately, the boys learn to inspire others, make friends, and develop empathy. The Boys’ Side experience provides authentic connections and teaches campers that kindness and courage are extremely valuable qualities that help them become better people.
The CAP Boys spend three periods per day interning as a staff member. The balance of the day is spent as a camper, where the boys participate in a variety of activities together. CAP Boys have an elective period each day, allowing them to pursue a passion at camp.
The daily program is supplemented by exciting special events and optional trips, making each day at Ramaquois truly unique!
Our older campers can choose from a menu of several different day and overnight trips. Popular destinations include amusement parks, Broadway shows, college visits, white water rafting and much more! Our pre-teens and teens bond during trips led by our experienced administrators and wonderful counselor role-models. Safety is our top priority - so we always have a very low camper to staff ratio on each trip.
We're proud to be considered
one of the best day camps in New York!
