Girls who are entering 2nd grade and above are excited to be part of Girls’ Side, known as the “Spirit” of Ramaquois. Girls are encouraged to celebrate their individuality and support each other. As the youngest members of Girls’ Side, the Middies always bring enthusiasm and energy to the Spirit Side!
The Spirit of Camp Ramaquois
Honestly, there are no words. I was so sad watching the twins get off the bus on the last day. Ramaquois has been so amazing. It made them brave, more confident, and showed them they were true campers. Thank you for everything. All three of my children are better for having gone to Ramaquois.
Girls’ Side Director
We challenge Girls’ Side campers in athletic, creative, and social ways while feeling supported; these opportunities allow them to take healthy risks, develop self-esteem, increase their competencies, and build confidence in themselves. Girls’ Side is a kind and respectful community that offers its campers real experiences and authentic connections.
A Day in the Life of a Middie
The youngest campers on Girls’ 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 Middies 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!
Stepping onto a school bus for the first time can be a huge leap of faith! The Ramaquois transportation program is run in the safest, most convenient, and most fun way possible. All of our routes feature the newest vehicles, career school bus drivers, Ramaquois bus counselors, seat belts for all campers and safety harnesses for our youngest campers. Parents appreciate our true door-to-door transportation service; and campers love our innovative “Fun on the Bus” program. Each camp bus becomes its own family!
For Ramaquois Staff, It’s More Than Just a Summer Job
Our Girls’ Side staff members do a terrific job of leading our girls to be confident in their abilities to break many stereotypes and stigmas. Staff members are thoughtful and respectful of each camper’s uniqueness. Counselors have the ability to lead with confidence and competence, which allows the campers to become the best versions of themselves.
Our goal is to help each camper improve his or her comfort level in the water and improve his or her individual swimming skills. Ramaquois swim groups feature very low camper-to-swim instructor ratios. Our campers have swim instruction every morning and free swim every afternoon. We are always so proud of how much each camper improves in just one summer!
