Boys’ Side, known as The Pride, is the home for our boys entering 5th grade. Campers are encouraged to take pride in their effort, show sportsmanship, be supportive, and take healthy risks. The Explorers have a more active program, are eligible to go on their first overnight Trail Blazer trip, have more coed activities, and participate in community service opportunities. The Explorers have a dynamic presence on Boys’ Side and demonstrate a ton of vitality and passion for camp.
So here we sit at [the end of] what was probably my son’s best summer ever… I can’t thank YOU ALL enough, every single person had their finger on the pulse when it came to my son… Everyone bent over backwards for him and us and we can’t thank you for everything… Ramaquois is truly incredible

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.
Explorers experience a great variety of activities. Each day features two water activities, lunch and a balance of athletic and non-athletic activities. The Explorers have an elective program, allowing them to pursue a passion at camp.
The daily program is supplemented by exciting special events, making each day at Ramaquois truly unique!
Campers entering 3rd grade and older are ready for some new adventures! Our optional trip program lets campers choose from several exciting day trips. Historically, Ramaquois has visited amusement parks, Broadway shows, baseball games and many other exciting venues! Campers entering 5th grade and older are offered overnight trips. All of our trips feature very low camper-to-staff ratios - safety is always our top priority. The best part of a Ramaquois trip is bonding with new and old friends during unique experiences!
We're proud to be considered
one of the best day camps in New York!
