Camp Ramaquois

Camp Ramaquois Pronounced Rama-Koy our camp name is derived from the Ramapo Mountains, which surround our campus, and the Iroquois tribe, who once inhabited these grounds. is a place where children feel physically and emotionally safe. We strive to create a unique environment where children feel a sense of belonging, learn life-long skills, have opportunities for leadership, and forge lasting relationships with their peers and their Counselors 70 % are former campers, and 75% return each year.. All this is done in a magical environment that revolves around one word: FUN!

We hope every camper leaves our camp believing in themselves and feeling a strong sense of accomplishment. We hope our campers leave Ramaquois standing a little taller, feeling more self-confident, communicating more effectively with their peers, learning to make meaningful friendships, holding dear to their Ramaquois memories and respecting the value of others.
