Boys entering nursery school are part of the Junior Camp community – the side of camp affectionately called “The Champs”. Our youngest campers are cared for by adult staff and counselors who provide the perfect balance of nurture and fun. We intentionally keep our group sizes small so that each child receives lots of individual attention. The focus for the Bluejays is on making friends, developing independence and trying new things. The boys are transformed into seasoned campers in just one short summer!
I can’t begin to tell you how happy we are and how happy Wyatt is!!! Being surrounded yesterday by so many happy kids and such a positive environment was infectious. It was such a pleasure to remember what camp is meant for and how taking yourself away from your phone makes you remember when life was simpler. Thanks for all you do!

Campers thrive in Junior Camp because of our patient, mature and nurturing staff, appropriately-sized facilities, and an emphasis on being a good friend. Our staff is extensively trained, and our program is intentionally designed, to encourage each group of campers to become a family. It is so wonderful to see our Junior Campers grow over the course of one short summer!
It’s such a thrill to see our youngest campers experience everything that Ramaquois has to offer! The Bluejays’ program, for 3 &4 year olds, is designed to be well balanced. Each day features instructional swim, free swim, lunch and a balance between athletic and non-athletic activities. Their daily program is supplemented by exciting special events, making each day at Ramaquois truly unique!
The Bluejays’ counselors are intentionally selected and carefully screened to work with our youngest campers. Each Bluejays group has at least three counselors, including a Mom. Additionally, an experienced Division Leader oversees all of the Bluejays groups. In Junior Camp, we focus on hiring staff that are mature, patient, empathetic, and positive role models.
We're proud to be considered
one of the best day camps in New York!
