Girls who are entering 7th 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. Varsity 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. Varsity girls are never bored at Ramaquois!
Even though I started late compared to most in my group (age 12), Ramaquois quickly became my summer home. I ended up staying for 10 summers and every time I thought it was my last, I just had to come back. There are no words to describe the memories, the friendships and the laughs I carry with me everyday because of my time at Ramaquois.

Girls’ Side campers are challenged 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.
The Varsity 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!
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!
