Ramapo for Children offers college students a valuable and highly unique summer job experience through one of our programs: Camp Ramapo.
Ramapo runs one of the few residential summer camps that specifically serves children with social, emotional, and learning challenges. At our camp, staff members believe that all children want to succeed, and embrace the challenges of working with special needs children. Many of our staff alumni describe their work at Ramapo as having been a formative experience, and have gone on to be teachers, psychologists, social workers, organization directors, and even founder of national service nonprofits.
Camp Ramapo has a one-to-one staff-to-camper ratio that not only helps children who need more supervision and support, but also provides staff members with the intensive, hands-on experience that they need to grow professionally.
Staff members receive the same state-of-the-art training that we provide to teachers and other youth-service professionals already working in the field. This training equips them with practical techniques to build positive relationships, create supportive environments for children with special needs, and grow to become leaders in the field.
In addition, students can gain up to 9 hours of course credit by taking Ramapo’s pn-site college course through the National College Credit Recommendation Service. On their transcript, the course will be listed through Excelsior College of the University of the State of New Youk and can be credited as : Education, Special Education, Educational Psychology, Therapeutic Recreation, Group Dynamics, Outdoor Recreation, Physical Education, Recreation, Camp Counseling, or Community Service. Your department may also have a fieldwork or independent study course which can be combined with this work.
Ramapo also has year-round, salaried positions available through our RamaYear program, which gives recent college graduates the opportunity to live and work full-time on our Rhinebeck campus. RamaYear staff members work with thousands of children, adults, educator, and youth workers who visit each year, and receive exceptional training in leadership, team-building and management. They join a team of dedicated and talented professionals led by highly experienced, accomplished and caring senior staff members.
