Complimentary Before and After Camp Care
This service is offered free of charge from 8:30 am – 9:30 am & 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm daily. Campers must be pre-registered, as space is limited. To register, please call the River Run Centre Box Office at 519.763.3000.
Dance-focus campers will be taken to Dancetheatre David Earle at 9:15 am.
What to Bring to Camp
Please ensure your child brings the following items to camp each day:
- A nut-free lunch & two nut-free snacks
- A labelled water bottle
- Loose-fitting clothing that allows for freedom of movement and possible paint stains
- Weather-appropriate clothing: part of lunch hour will be spent outside, so children may get muddy, snowy or wet – and anything in between.
Guelph Dance will offer two subsidized spaces in each full-day program and one in the half-day program for each camp. Subsidized spaces will be distributed on a first-come-first served basis. Campers will only be subsidized for one camp each year, either the March Break or the Summer Camp.
These spaces have been made possible by support form the Cowan Foundation and Cargill Canada as well as community donors to the Monica Davis Camp Scholarship Fund. Additional space may become available through the Kids-to-Camp Fund through the Guelph Community Foundation.
