Girls Entering 9th Grade


Girls who are entering 9th grade 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. The Girls’ Side culture allows each camper to become the best version of herself. Sorority girls are considered part of “Upper Camp” and enjoy many engaging camp programs, including our unique SNAPS League. As campers get older, the Ramaquois program adjusts to accommodate their different interests and skill levels. Sorority girls are never bored at Ramaquois!

Girls’ Side

The Spirit of Camp Ramaquois

Camp really taught me the meaning of friendship. I was always able to keep in touch with my friends and keep them close. I think the fact that I’m still friends and in touch with most of them is a testament to that!

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 Sorority Girl

Sample Schedule

The Sorority program is action packed!. Each day features seven age-appropriate activities, including lunch and a balance of athletic and non-athletic activities. Each day, the girls have an elective period, allowing them to pursue a passion at camp.

The daily program is supplemented by exciting special events and optional trips, 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.

Campers who have grown up at Ramaquois look forward to wearing grey t-shirts in Upper Camp and becoming role models for the younger camper on Girls’ Side who still wear light blue.

A Place for Older Girls

Upper Camp Girls’ Side is a special place at Ramaquois. Here, camp friendships and shared experiences are celebrated. Participation in the Upper Camp SNAPS League is a highlight for our older campers. SNAPS instills in our campers the importance of Spirit, Novelty, Attitude, Participation and Sportsmanship. These five qualities also describe the culture of Girls’ Side. New friends are warmly welcomed and quickly become a part of Upper Camp family.

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 always 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!
