Registration & Camper Information Form

Registration for camp is done through River Run Centre.  After registering, please download the camper information form, fill it out, and bring it with you on the first day of camp.

General Camp Information

Drop-off & Pick-Up

Regularly scheduled camp activities occur between 9:30 am and 3:30 pm. As a courtesy, we offer complimentary before camp care from 8:30-9:30 am and after camp care from 3:30-4:30 pm.

Please see special instructions for Dance Focus and Teen Intensive campers.

After Camp Care

Extra post-camp care is offered from 4:30 – 5:30 pm for $5 per day or $25 for the whole week. To register, please call the River Run Centre Box Office at 519-763-3000.

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 Guelph Community Foundation.
