Our activities are designed to promote confidence and build trust. They fit into a predictable, highly structured, and action-packed schedule that also provides the opportunity for choice.
Ramapo’s one-to-one staff-to-camper ratio and expert training of carefully selected counselors ensure a safe, predictable, and highly structured setting that fosters the development of positive social and learning skills. The result is a community in which campers build healthy relationships, increase self-esteem, and improve learning skills.
A typical day at Camp Ramapo might include a morning challenge on the high ropes, a swim in the lake or pool after lunch, an afternoon learning about nature, and an evening campfire.
Campers practice responsibility by maintaining the cleanliness of their bunk and bed, a task shared by everyone.
Campers live in rustic bunks with an average of six peers.
