    What do you do differently or uniquely well?

    "We believe that "whose in charge matters" and that ambitious physical education teachers make the best sports camp directors. Our teacher advantage allows us to access our vast networks of teachers to have top students staff our camp. We are dedicated to equipping our staff comprehensively in a week long staff training conference prior to the first day of camp. We know how to lead our excellent teams of staff to best care for your children, because it's what we do every day! "

    Who are your staff and counsellors?

    "Our staff are carefully selected high school seniors and university students from our network of teachers. Our staff are diverse and selected for their strong character, desire help kids grow, academic aptitude and sport skill."

    What do families need to know about registration?

    "We conveniently sell camp by the week. Some locations sell out before the end of April, so hurry, but we now have 5 locations across York Region to meet your needs.

    Registration is quick and easy at rougecamps.com."

    The Our Kids review of Rouge Camps

    our take

    The best teachers make for the best experiences for kids. That’s why Rouge Camps extensively vet all of their camp teachers to ensure they are skilled, ambitious, and character-driven. They are also teachers or teachers-in-training. Founder Adam Buchnea is a teacher himself, and knows the value of camp to develop kids’ development. He believes that teaching life skills through sport is the best way to help kids learn discipline, independence, empathy, and confidence. While Rouge Camps has a focus on sports and the outdoors, that isn’t all that they do. Games, dress-up, live theatre, arts and crafts, are also on the line-up. The wide variety of sports activities are rotated throughout the day and lets kids be introduced to new sports or practice the ones they already love. Camps for older kids focus on leadership skills so that kids come back to help teach camp programs themselves. Rouge Camps is one of the best youth employers in the GTA, and that could be a testament to what they teach at their camp.

    Sheila (Parent)Happy Parent!

    For anyone looking for a summer camp, I highly recommend Rouge Valley Sports Camp. The camp leaders are amazing with the kids, full of energy, nurturing, and always go above and beyond to make sure the kids are happy and safe. The activities are a perfect mix of games, sports, arts and entertainment. Our daughters had a wonderful time each day at camp and that’s a FIRST for them…happy kids = happy parents! We loved the welcome dance, the recap emails each day, the special treats for the kids each day, and all the beautiful pictures you posted of the day's activities. My daughters enjoyed themselves tremendously each day and looked forward to the next day! You delivered on your promise of a memorable camp for them! They can't wait for next year and already miss you all! Signed A Very Happy Mom! Sheil ... Read More

    Tania (Parent)Happy Parent!

    The absolute best camp out there! My son has never enjoyed a camp quite like this one. The activities are exciting and staff members are well organized and pleasant to deal with. At the end of each day I receive an email with a recap of their day and pictures which is so enjoyable for a parent. Their Instagram account is updated often so you get to see your kids in action. Next year both kids will attend!!! Kudos to everyone at Rouge Hill Sports Camp...... job well done ... Read More

    Anita (Parent)Highly Recommended

    My son & his friend enjoyed this camp so much last summer when they attended for a couple of weeks that they asked to go back for the entire summer this year. The staff is composed mainly of young men & women who are already in teacher's college or headed there, so they have a genuine affection for kids & understand their needs better than staff at other day camps. The staff to camper ratio is low so they really get to know the kids. Overall I was very happy with this camp for my son, he will be returning next year ... Read More

    Parm (Parent)Coming back next summer

    One of the best summer camps my son ever been to. Amazing and super friendly staff, yet very professional. Definitely recommend this place. So sad it's over and so looking forward to next summer:) Thank you Rouge Hill staff for making this summer an amazing and memorable one for my son ... Read More

    C Ma (Parent)Camp during the pandemic

    My son was at Rouge Camps Markham for 2 weeks and had a fantastic time! I was very happy with the safety protocols they had implemented with most of the time spent outdoors and indoor facilities for rainy days. The camp counsellors were great with the kids (shout out to Buzz light year and Moana) Themes each week and a variety of sports kept all the kids busy engaged and happy. I would not hesitate to recommend this camp to anyone and we will be back next year. Great program and camp for kids ... Read More

    Sev D (Parent)Happy Dad

    Director's Message

    Adam Buchnea, Founder of Rouge Camps
    Hon. B. of Kin., B. of Ed., OCT

    Rouge Camps is a safe place for young campers to explore their interests, grow in character, develop movement skills and be adventurous.  Our exciting programs include over 15 different sports and activities, including camper favourites soccer, dance, basketball, floor hockey and fully themed camp-wide-activities.  Our campers love our programs because they offer a variety of different activities through our exploratory sport periods, but also allow our campers to participate in the activities that they love most in our elective periods.  Parent's are also happy to hear that we offer fun educational periods twice a week to keep their campers mentally engaged during the summer months.  With 12+ years of teaching experience and 16 years of camp experience I have seen the power camp has on a young person's development.  In only a week our young campers grow in confidence and become more comfortable in their own skin.  We are able to do this effectively, at Rouge Camps, because a network of teachers from around the region refer to us their best students.  We have top university and high school seniors who have been chosen for their leadership, strong character and desire to work with children leading our activities.  It is our exceptional staff that allow us to deliver on our motto of teaching life through sport and earn ratings of 9/10+ by both campers and their parents. Furthermore, our Camp Directors are all trained teachers and understand that you as parents want to be informed of what your campers are doing at camp.  You will thoroughly enjoy our daily recap emails and video's posted to social media throughout the day to keep up to date on all of the fun your camper(s) are having.  Register with Rouge Camps this summer to find out what the buzz is about and experience the Rouge Difference for yourself!
