Description of Camp Ramapo

Based on our 250-acre campus in Rhinebeck, New York, Camp Ramapo is Ramapo for Children’s residential summer camp that serves young people with a diverse set of needs and abilities. Some of our campers are on the Autism Spectrum, while others require greater support due to trauma, stress, or other disabilities. We believe ALL young people want the same things: to learn, to feel valued, and to experience success.

As a Ramapo staff member, you will develop the skills you need to succeed with a broad range of young people. You will learn to understand behavior as communication. You will emerge with a heightened ability to meet your campers’ needs and to teach them new skills. You will learn how to create environments that celebrate strengths and enable all young people to feel a sense of belonging. You will work hard every day you are here, and learn more than you ever thought possible.

As a Camp Ramapo counselor, you’ll benefit from:

Intensive, evidence-informed training on our Ramapo Approach, a culmination of a century of experience in direct service and training programs

Hands-on experience in creating inclusive environments, adapting to individual needs, and de-escalating behavior with neurodiverse youth

A network of people within Ramapo for Children’s community, including year-round staff members, board members, and staff alumni, in the fields of Education, Social Work, and other Human Service Professions

Room and Board on our 250-acre campus in the Hudson Valley, plus summer and travel stipends

Up to six college credits through an on-site college course, Fieldwork in Special Education

Qualifications:

Many counselors are students and emerging professionals in the fields of special education, social work, psychology, and related fields, but no previous experience in this type of work is necessary. We do ask you to exemplify the following: patience, commitment, a readiness to learn, and a willingness to be of service to others.
