General Camp Information

Drop-off & Pick-Up

All campers should be dropped off at the River Run Centre by 9:25 am and picked up at the River Run Centre at 3:30 pm. Please see special instructions for Dance Focus and Teen Intensive campers.

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

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. 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 Kids-to-Camp Fund through the Guelph Community Foundation.
