Boys’ Side, known as The Pride, is the home for our boys entering 4th grade. Campers are encouraged to take pride in their effort, show sportsmanship, be supportive, and take healthy risks. Musketeers have a robust program with some more advanced activities like archery and woodworking, softball league, basketball tournaments, and a larger variety of Trail Blazer trip options. They are tireless and exuberant, and Musketeers are the first campers to demonstrate leadership as role models to our younger Boys’ Side campers.
Daniel has truly enjoyed every minute of camp this year and we are so sad it is ending. It is amazing to see him have the friendships he has with his group! I appreciate all that you do for him and we are looking forward to another great summer next year.

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.
Musketeers experience a great variety of activities. Each day features instructional swim, free swim, lunch and a balance of athletic and non-athletic activities. The Musketeers 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!
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.About Our Staff
