Frequently Asked Questions
Is summer camp running this year?
Our in-person summer camp will be operating this year at Richland Academy for JK-Gr.4 instead of our regular JK-Gr.9 program due to limits on class sizes. For older students (Gr.3-8), check out our other summer sessions to see what is available for you.

Does the facility have air conditioning?

What is the counsellor to camper ratio?
There is a 1:3 staff to camper ratio at camp.
What is the age of the staff?
Our counsellors are High School Students, University and Graduate Students, as well as Teachers. All of our staff have CPR/First Aid and have all passed a vulnerable sector police background check.
What kind of physical activity do they do?
We encourage our campers to participate in the various team sports at camp, like basketball, soccer, and volleyball. We also have individual as well as more leisurely activities that campers can participate in, like catch, frisbee, and a number of other activities that will get them moving!
Is it just the arena, or are there classrooms too?
The Richmond Hill Curling Club is transformed each summer into an innovation hub! We have a large classroom, a dining hall, a digital fabrication studio, and our own STEAM Factory workshop!
