About this Camp

Ridley College Summer Programmes

Ridley College Summer Programmes offer a wide selection of exciting day camps appealing to future athletes, budding Picassos and everything in between. With programs based in art, science, sports and music we provide a variety of interest-based, age appropriate, weekly camp options for ages 4-13 to explore. Participants are encouraged to accept new challenges, take risks and develop grit and resilience. Each programme emphasizes individual skills development, thinking outside the box, co-operation, participation, and most importantly, fun!  At Ridley College, campers will flourish and grow!

  • Hot Lunches included daily.
  • Recreational swim with most programmes

The Our Kids review of Ridley College Summer Programmes


The Ridley summer programs are robust and well attended. More than 1800 enrol each summer, so in a sense the camps have a population that doubles and then some the student population on campus during the school year. The reason they are so popular is because they are so well run. The symphony sessions—there’s one for young musicians who compete for spots, another for tyros—are staffed by members of the Niagara Symphony Orchestra. They’re the only true symphony camps of their kind in the country. Other offerings range across a fairly wide swath of interest, including those that appeal to international students, to those programmed with local kids in mind. It’s a great mix, and even though kids are in different sessions, many of them are run consecutively, allowing a nice interaction between young people of like interest as with as those with divergent interest. The campus is frankly gorgeous, with a wealth of green space. The facilities, too, are top-notch, including outdoor ed equipment, two professional-level performing arts spaces, and a wealth of resources. The camps make extensive use of all of it. The ESL camps are some of the best in the region and beyond. The attraction is multi-faceted, and the proximity to Niagara Falls and Toronto are included within that. The ESL sessions provide international students with a strong camp experience, a residence with peers from around the world, and an intensive language immersion and instruction. In those, and across the summer programs, there’s a lot to love.

The 2021 Experience at Ridley College Summer Programmes

We hope everyone has remained safe and healthy throughout these past months. As we plan for a fulsome future, rest assured our Summer Programmes team is keeping informed and up to date on all current federal and municipal health and safety guidelines which are being enforced due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Preparations for our 2021 Programme Season are currently underway, and we hope to welcome past and new families to our beautiful campus to “discover the perfect place to flourish this summer.” We will be making the necessary adjustments to ensure the health and safety of our campers and staff. We will continue to uphold the high quality summer camp experience our community has come to know and love. We aim to provide opportunities to expand the mind, body and spirit of each camper—it will be a summer of transformative experiences and forming new and lifelong connections! We appreciate your patience and understanding as we enhance our planning process. We thank you for your interest in our programmes

Stay safe!

Director's Message

Kristina Wyrcimaga, Ridley College Summer Programmes Manager


My name is Kristina, and with over 20 years of experience in child care and summer camps, I’m thrilled to be back at my alma mater as the Ridley College Summer Programmes Manager. Summer is a great time for children to expand their minds, have transformative experiences and make new and lifelong connections and friendships. Our programmes offer a variety of opportunities that focus on developing the mind, body and spirit of both local and international students. 

Our co-educational programmes offer day and boarding options in Academics, Athletics, Performing Arts and Interest-based curriculums. All programmes take advantage of our beautiful 90-acre campus and state of the art facilities, in the heart of the Niagara Region. 

We strive to offer low camper to instructor ratios, qualified and experienced instructors and staff, access to innovative resources, and a safe and accessible environment. We take pride in our services and always work to improve our programming year to year!

My favorite part of working with, and mentoring children, has always been to “see the world through their eyes”, to witness their physical, creative, social and interpersonal development. Helping to develop their creativity and leadership skills, hearing their laughter, seeing their smiles and the bonds they make is nothing short of rewarding! Ridley College Summer Programmes is the perfect place for your child(ren) to Flourish! I look forward to meeting you and your family, on campus, in the coming months. I’m always happy to connect and answer any questions, or provide additional information you may have about our offerings.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Stay safe,
