  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Ridley College Summer Programmes

    our take

    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.

    Parent (Parent)Organization

    " The organization of the programs, including pick ups and drop offs, lunch in the dining halls, the number of counsellors was amazing, and the familiarity of the grounds (I'm an OR). I also LOVED not having to pack a lunch and I knew she was having a good meal daily :) ... Read More

    Parent (Parent)Happy and Engaged

    "My daughter LOVED her program and was very happy and engaged throughout her week. The programs were orgnized and well planned and the additional food plan was greatly appreciated."

    Parent (Parent)Interactions with Counsellors

    "Everyday we heard the day was 'great!' and interactions with counsellors seemed to be a highlight"

    Parent (Parent)Amazing

    "I am continually impressed with Ridley College camps (summer and march break), the quality of staff, facilities, activities! Amazing. I know my son will have a good time every time he goes to camp. I really appreciate how the music academy recorded the kids performances as the parents could not attend. I love the photo album at the end of summer also! And the weekly 'award' certificates were really appreciated, to let the kids know what they did that was good/helpful/friendly/cooperative! ...

    Director's Message

    Jay Tredway, Assistant Head of School: Co-curricular & Community Connection

    Hello Campers!

    Summer in Niagara is a uniquely Canadian experience and enjoying it while living and learning on Ridley College’s beautiful 90-acre campus, using our state-of-the-art facilities, makes this opportunity very special.

    The warm summer months at Ridley are a great time for young people to expand their minds, have transformative experiences, make new and lifelong connections and friendships. Just like our academic year, Ridley summer programmes offer a variety of opportunities that focus on the development of the mind, body and spirit of students from our region and from around the globe.   

    Our co-educational programmes offer day and boarding options in Academics, Athletics, Performing Arts, Debate and Leadership. Led by our qualified and experienced teachers and staff, our low camper to instructor ratio provides campers ready access to innovative resources, including our first-class facilities. We offer quality programming on our safe, secure, and accessible campus.

    As they have for decades, summers at Ridley engage campers’ physical, creative, social, and interpersonal skill development, helping them to enhance their confidence, maturity, and critical thinking, all while having a great time!

    We are extremely excited to share our incredible campus and programmes with you! Please reach out and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about our diverse offerings and our truly Canadian summer experiences.

    We look forward to meeting you soon!

    Jay W. Tredway

    Assistant Head of School
