General Camp Information

Drop-off & Pick-Up

Dance-focus campers should be dropped off at the Royal City School of Ballet (128 Woolwich Street) between 9:15 – 9:30 am, unless pre-camp care is required. All other campers should be dropped off at the River Run Centre by 9:25 am.

All campers should be picked up at the River Run Centre at 3:30 pm.

If you require an early drop-off or late pick-up, please refer to our complimentary before and after camp care below.

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 the Royal City School of Ballet 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 offers subsidized spaces 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 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.
