Boys Entering 7th Grade


Boys’ Side, known as The Pride, is the home for our boys entering 7th grade. Campers are encouraged to take pride in their effort, show sportsmanship, be supportive, and take healthy risks. Grenadiers are considered part of “Upper Camp” and enjoy many engaging camp programs, including our unique Bunt & Steal League. As campers get older, the Ramaquois program adjusts to accommodate their different interests and skill levels. Grenadier boys are never bored at Ramaquois!

The Pride of Camp Ramaquois

Ramaquois has become a huge part of Jack’s life. It’s a place where he feels welcome, liked, respected, and happy. Thanks very much to you and your team for making the camp a home away from home for Jack

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 Grenadier

Sample Schedule

Grenadiers experience a wide variety of activities. Each day features two water activities, lunch and a balance of athletic and non-athletic activities. The Grenadiers 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!

An exciting program for Upper Camp Boys is our Bunt & Steal League, an opportunity for boys to participate in an energetic and intense activity in which all campers, regardless of ability level, are given chances to lead and shine.
A Place for Older Campers

Become the best version of yourself

Boys’ Side campers entering 7th through 10th grades have a unique place at Camp Ramaquois. There’s never an, “I’m too old for this” feeling, and they become great role models for our younger boys. With adult-sized field space, age-appropriate specialty areas, and opportunities to develop leadership skills through experiential learning and unique programming, our older campers never feel they need to leave. Once entering 10th grade, older boys become part of our Counselor Apprentice Program (CAP), where they develop the skills and experiences to make themselves eligible to be a group counselor the following summer.

The Best Role Models

For Ramaquois Staff, It’s More Than Just a Summer Job

Our Boys’ Side staff members lead by example by demonstrating warmth, caring and kindness for each camper. Counselors teach campers, through athletics, creative and cultural activities, and adventure learning, that taking pride in one’s effort is the best way to separate excellence from mediocrity. By focusing on “pride,” staff members teach our boys how to build great relationships and develop lifelong friendships.
