About this camp

Our recreation, sport, specialty, and leadership camps meet everyone's interests. Lunch and extended care options available.

The Our Kids review of Ryerson Summer Day Camps


There are some distinct benefits to camps run, as this one is, by a world-class educational institution. The resources are rich and ample in ways that, understandably, other kinds of camps could never replicate. Science sessions are held in world-class, fully equipped lab settings; sports are conducted in professional-grade facilities. That's true of all offerings, which are varied and unique. There are News Academy camps, where kids learn about journalism while participating within a professional news gathering and broadcasting setting. There’s a bit of imagination to it all—kids who dream of being on camera news readers, for example, will be living the dream—but not much, given that, well, it’s all real and it’s all happening, with real equipment. For the right kids, it's literally a dream come true. Less obvious at first glance, but equally true, is that camps are run by staff who are at the same level, and who are themselves looking to careers in the areas that they teach within, if not having already achieved that. The location is a draw, to be sure, in the heart of the city and easily accessible by public transit. The camps have been run since 1984, and are administered with expertise and experience.

Director's Message

Mike Stewart, Camp Director

Welcome to Ryerson Summer Day Camps!

Since 1984, we have offered an outstanding Summer Camp program to families from Toronto, throughout the Greater Toronto Area, and around the world. Our Day Camp program is renowned for its high-quality instruction, and caring and experienced camp staff.

We are proud to offer programs that are almost as limitless as the interests of our campers. Our Multi-Sport program has been a summer tradition for thousands of campers over the years. Our high performance sport camps offer budding athletes opportunities to develop their skills in basketball, hockey, volleyball, or soccer. And our Eureka, Architecture, News Academy, and Design-a-Bot programs allow participants to learn from some of the most inspired minds at Ryerson.

Ryerson Summer Day Camps staff are highly trained university graduates and students, coaches, professors, University staff, and athletes. Many of our Camp staff members were themselves campers at Ryerson Summer Day Camps. Each staff member is committed to making a meaningful and lasting contribution to our campers.

Our Day Camp is an accredited member of the Ontario Camps Association, and we are active members of the Canadian Camping Association and International Camping Fellowship.

Camp has played a big role in my life. I have spent over 25 summers at day and overnight camps in Toronto and across Ontario, and have worked in a year-round capacity in camping (including in Director roles) since 2005. Through my own experiences, I have seen the tremendous growth and development that a summer at camp can provide a child. My hope is that each and every camper that joins us this summer comes away with a greater sense of self-confidence, independence, and belonging.

On behalf of our entire team, I look forward to welcoming you and your family to the Ryerson community. We can’t wait to see you at Camp!

I'm Sure They Will be Back Next Year!

“I just wanted to say thank you to you and your wonderful staff and volunteers. My children attended the Multi-Sport and Multi-Fun Camp last week and had a fabulous time. This was (my son’s) first day camp experience and he loved it! They were sad to leave. I’m sure they will be back next year!”


Full Marks for Camp!

“Another awesome summer camp – you have a done a fantastic job. This is the second time (my daughter) attended the Eureka Camp, and she gave your camp full mark! She keeps talking about how much fun it was and how friendly the teacher was. A great experience, and we will be back for sure. Next year her brother will also attend!”


My Daughter's Counsellor

“I wanted to write you to let you know that my kids had a very positive experience at sports camp. I really appreciate all that the counsellors and organizers have done to make this such a positive experience for the kids.

I can’t say enough about (my daughter’s) counsellor, and how great she is. (My daughter) thought so highly of her counsellor that she asked if she could be her public school teacher this September for Grade 5!”
