Boys’ Side, known as The Pride, is the home for our boys entering 3rd grade. Campers are encouraged to take pride in their effort, show sportsmanship, be supportive, and take healthy risks. The Warriors have a dynamic program complete with daily option/elective for one activity period, introduction of activities intended for some older campers, and the opportunity to participate in our Trail Blazers trip program. The Warriors are a lively group with a ton of energy and excitement!
The Pride of Camp Ramaquois
Of all the places my kids go (sports, classes, other camps when they were younger, school, etc) we have never had a better experience. Ramaquois is the warmest, best run, caring, loving, up to date, organized of them all. Each summer I was more impressed than the last. You think of everything! And I am a tough customer! I am proud and grateful to have been a part of the family. Thank you for everything!

Boys’ Side Director
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 Warrior
Warriors experience a great variety of activities. Each day features instructional swim, free swim, lunch and a balance of athletic and non-athletic activities. Each day, the Warriors 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 7th 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!
Teaching character through athletics
Ramaquois’ athletic programs promote healthy competition. Our field specialists provide instruction to develop the best skills and sportsmanship in all of our campers. The result is a warm environment where campers feel comfortable to try their best, while also encouraging and celebrating their peers.
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.
