Girls entering nursery school are part of the Junior Camp community – the side of camp affectionately called “The Champs”. Junior Camp provides the perfect “home base” for our youngest campers to experience everything Ramaquois has to offer in a nurturing environment. Junior Camp staff focus on helping the campers make new friends, develop independence and encourage the campers to try new things. We intentionally keep our group sizes small so that each child receives lots of individual attention. Staff assigned to the Robins choose to work with our youngest campers. They are excited to have a positive impact on the first camp experience for these children.
It was such a gift to see Ella so happy, excited and proud to show us around, share her activities and “places” on campus, and introduce us to her counselors (that she idolizes)! They were each super friendly, kind, energetic. We are grateful that Ella has warm, engaging and positive role models to look up to each day.

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 Robins’ 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!
The Robins’ counselors are intentionally selected and carefully screened to work with our youngest campers. Each Robins group has at least three counselors, including a Mom. Additionally, an experienced Division Leader oversees all of the Robins groups. In Junior Camp, we focus on hiring staff that are mature, patient, empathetic, and positive role models.
