Girls Entering 1st Grade

Freshmen

Girls entering 1st Grade are part of the Junior Camp community – the side of camp affectionately called “The Champs”. The Freshmen relish their role as the oldest girls in Junior Camp! While still under the warm and nurturing umbrella of Junior Camp, as the oldest campers on this side of camp, the Freshmen are empowered as leaders and role models for the younger campers. Their program is designed to foster the continued growth in each individual camper, while at the same time, prepares them to move up to Girls’ Side the following summer. Freshmen summer is one the campers will never forget!

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 Junior Campers experience everything that Ramaquois has to offer! The Freshmen program 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!

Pools and lake 0061 1.jpg?ixlib=rails 2.1
With a five acre lake and nine heated pools of varying depths, there is plenty of room for campers to “spread their fins.”
Learning to Swim

We View Swimming as a Critical Life Skill

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! Learn more about our lake and pools

Each child has his or her own cubby, and every camper's bunk has bathrooms - little things that go a long way to making a child feel comfortable in a new place.

Like a Home Away From Home

Junior Campers thrive at Ramaquois because of big things like top-notch swim instruction and awesome special events. But sometimes, it’s the little things that make all the difference in the world. Our dedicated counselors re-apply sunscreen and encourage campers to drink water and use the bathroom. They encourage picky eaters to try new foods, and are vigilant about dietary restrictions.
