Did you miss out on attending this summer? 2019 Gryphons Summer Camp Registration opens February 4th @ 5:30am

Mini Gryphs is designed specifically for young children ages 3-5 who are new to camp.  This camp will focus on the important elements of social, physical and educational development.  This play-based program gives children the opportunity to socialize and develop fine & gross motor skills in order to prepare them for a camp environment.  This program will provide your child with the tools to successfully transition into Junior Activity Camp in the future.  We are excited to grow great Gryphons!

Mini Gryphs offers a smaller instructor to camper ratio so focus can be placed on building attachments between the instructor and your child.  With a ratio of 1:5, your child will feel more comfortable in a smaller group setting, as instructors will be able to provide individual attention.  Several instructors in this program will have a background in Child, Youth Family Studies or are Early Childhood Educators.

Please note that we do not offer a 1:1 ratio. For more information on how to acquire a 1:1 worker while your child is in camp, please contact camps@uoguelph.ca

Please note that there is no daily swim as part of this program. Campers will be introduced to the pool environment to observe other camps during their swims.
