  • 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.

    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

    Amazing
    Parent (Parent)

    "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

    Kristina Wyrcimaga, Ridley College Summer Programmes Manager
    B.A.Soc, B.S.Ed

    Hello!

    Summer here at Ridley College 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, 

    Sincerely,

    Kristina
