Hi! My name is Sarah and I’m going to be one of the Assistant Directors this summer. My favourite things about camp are session, sponge wars, and going on crazy campout adventures! I am so excited to see all of you soon!

Munchkin (ages 5-7)

At two days and one night long, Munchkin is the perfect length to give your little Munchkin a taste of all the fun at Ryerson!

Gapher (ages 6-9)

Three days packed with all the fun of a full week! Gapher week gives campers the opportunity to see what Ryerson is all about, playing games, singing around a campfire and learning about who Jesus is and how he loves them so much.

Junior (ages 9-11)

Experience all that Ryerson has to offer! Junior campers spend their days doing camp activities such as archery, crafts and swimming, participating in Session where they can sing and dance along to worship music and learn more about Jesus! It's a great way to meet new friends, explore the outdoors and build a faithful foundation.

Intermediate (ages 12-14)

Enjoy all the camp activities you know and love with some added adventures! See old camp friends and meet new ones while digging a bit deeper into your faith.

Music & Drama (ages 10-13)

Imagine all your favourite camp activities PLUS performing a musical production at the end of the week! Music and Drama campers get to experience classic camp games and activities, while also putting on a musical production of a bible story. Parents and Guardins are invited to watch the performance on Friday and see their camper, sing, dance or act on stage!

Progies (ages 14-15)

Progies provides a taste of leadership at camp, while also growing and being challenged in Christian faith. Campers accepted into the Progie Program will attend a three day training weekend in June and then have a placement during either Gapher or Junior week. During their placement they will get to shadow a counsellor(s), plan and lead games and serve wherever else needed.

Adult & Family Camp

Your whole family can attend camp together! Programming for everyone from toddlers to seniors. Spend some parts of the week as a family and some parts of the week with others in your age group diving into your faith.

Taste of Family Camp

Experience camp with your family for a day! Join Family Camp for a full day, partake in the days activities, meals, meet other families and spend some time in worship or kids programming.

Youth Camp (ages 15-18)

Get ready for camp kicked up a notch! Bring your friends and get ready for intense sessions, games, theme nights, camp out, worship, and beach days! This is camp like you've never experienced before.

"Ryerson camp was perfect for my kids first experience away from home. The staff are friendly & welcoming and you can easily see they really care about the well being of the kids. The short stays for younger campers made it great for kids (and moms & dads) to be away from home for the first time. On pick up day my kids were already asking to go back again." Angie (mom of Luke - aged 9 & Nate - aged 6)

"Nathan is already planning next summer! The experience was life changing for him, the staff were remarkable and when we went to pick him up, he didn’t want to leave." ~ Danelle (mom of Nathan, age 9)
