Ramapo for Children, founded in 1922, is a nationally recognized, non-profit residential program which annually serves over 1,700 children who are at-risk or have special needs from early childhood through adolescence.
Camp Ramapo is consistent with Ramapo for Children's overall mission: to serve children with a range of emotional and learning problems in a natural, outdoor environment. It provides educational and recreational experiences which promote social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth.
Camp Ramapo offers a safe, predictable and highly structured environment.
Campers live in rustic bunks with an average of six children in each group. The atmosphere is warm and supportive, and with a one-to-one staff-to-camper ratio all activities are carefully supervised.
Days Are Action Packed!
During each of our summer sessions, 200 campers participate in creative projects, sports and outdoor experiences. All activities are individualized to each child's abilities. Campers swim, canoe, hike and camp out. They improve learning skills in the Reading Center and Discovery Center. Creative talents are nurtured in Arts, Crafts, and other enrichment activities. Selected older campers are offered pre-vocational training; Some go on to work at camp.
