Boys Entering 10th Grade

CAP Boys

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.

Boys’ Side

The Pride of Camp Ramaquois

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.

CAP Program

Our Counselor Apprentice Program is a leadership training initiative that allows our oldest campers to enjoy everything they love about being a camper, while also helping them become our next generation of leaders. As counselor interns in the morning, the CAPs rotate to different groups in camp and receive hands-on training about how to become a great counselor. In the afternoon, the CAPs are campers and travel as a group through a scheduled program of athletic, cultural arts and water activities. CAPs also participate in our optional trip program.

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 Dining Hall. 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.

A Day in the Life of a CAP Boy

Sample Schedule

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!

Optional Adventure Trip Program

A New Adventure Awaits!

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.

Ramaquois Traditions

An Authentic Camp Experience, Since 1922

Ramaquois traditions help make our camp a special community. Time-honored traditions include Legends’ Ceremonies, Song & Cheer, Moving Up Ceremonies, RamaGames and many more. Our traditions celebrate milestones, bond campers together, and connect our generations. Like everything else at Ramaquois, our traditions are more meaningful because we do them together.

We're proud to be considered
one of the best day camps in New York!
