Boys Entering 6th Grade


Boys’ Side, known as The Pride, is the home for our boys entering 6th grade. Campers are encouraged to take pride in their effort, show sportsmanship, be supportive, and take healthy risks. The Hurricanes are eligible for multiple overnight Trail Blazer trips, participate in their highly energetic Wildcat Softball League, and have an active and engaging program. Our Hurricanes traditionally provide much of the spark of energy of Boys’ Side with their youthful exuberance mixed with increased levels of maturity.

Boys’ Side

The Pride of Camp Ramaquois

The extra attention from your staff was never unnoticed, and always appreciated. You lead by example, top down. David grew so much this summer, and gained so much confidence.

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 Hurricane

Sample Schedule

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

Each child is thoughtfully placed in a small camp group with three counselors. The group does all of their activities together, resulting in strong friendships.

You Belong at Ramaquois

Children often feel pressure to “fit in.” This can lead to children attempting to change who they are to be more like their peer group. At Ramaquois, campers are encouraged to be who they are. We celebrate each child’s uniqueness. When a child feels a sense of belonging, the pressure to “fit in” disappears - that is the magic of the Ramaquois community.

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.

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.

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