Boys’ Side, known as The Pride, is the home for our boys entering 2nd grade and above. Campers are encouraged to take pride in their effort, show sportsmanship, be supportive, and take healthy risks. The Rangers are our youngest and most energetic Boys’ Side campers, and they’re so excited to be a part of the “older” kids program with so many terrific role models in older campers and staff. They demonstrate a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for everything they do. Rangers really enjoy getting a taste of an option/elective program one period every few days.
Anyone who sends their child to Ramaquois will know after ONE day that it is so much more than a camp. It is like a second home to these kids and the people who work there are more than counselors and division leaders, etc. They are special people who are one of the major reasons that these kids come home smiling and can’t wait for the next camp day.

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.
The youngest campers on Boys’ Side experience a great variety of activities. Each day features instructional swim, free swim, lunch and a balance of athletic and non-athletic activities. Several times per week, the Rangers 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!
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
