Ridley College Summer Programmes offers a wide selection of exciting day camps appealing to future athletes, budding Picassos and everything in between. With programmes based in art, science and sports, we provide a variety of interest-based, age appropriate weekly camp options for ages 4-13 to explore. All programmes offer a hot lunch and daily swim.
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.
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
