The Gryphon Camp Experience

Sending your child to camp for the first time is a new experience for both you and your child. This section is designed to help you understand what a day in the life of Gryphon Camps is like, and help determine if Gryphon Camps are right for you and your child.

Camp Staff

Our instructors are primarily University/College students, graduates, and varsity athletes. Some camp staff are older High School students who work closely with our senior staff. All successful applicants have been thoroughly interviewed, and many have been a part of our team for several summers. All Gryphon Camp staff participate in extensive training, are certified in CPR/Emergency First Aid, and have Police Records Checks. We also offer the opportunity for High School students to fulfill community service volunteer hours (participants must be a minimum of 15 years old).

Your Child's Safety

All Gryphon Activity Camp Instructors are certified in Emergency First Aid and CPR to ensure a top quality, and most importantly, a safe camp experience for your child. During all of our training sessions, emergency procedures are reviewed thoroughly. Additional topics discussed include: custody arrangements, child abuse, behaviour modification, weather conditions and self-esteem. While using the swimming pool, certified lifeguards are present at all times as well as the camp instructors. Children take part in a swimming test at the beginning of the first swimming session. If your child is not a strong enough swimmer, they will wear a Personal Floatation Device at all times. Safety is our first concern. Campers are required to bring their own sunscreen and hat (younger children will be assisted with sunscreen).

/Sign-out Procedures

Our procedures are intended to keep your child safe. You will be asked to sign your child in with a Gryphon Camp Instructor each morning. At the end of the day, you will be asked to sign your child out with an instructor. You will be required to show photo I.D. at sign out. At the parents discretion, you can waive this requirement during your registration process. All sign-in/out locations are indicated on the camp pages. If on any day your child is unable to attend camp, you must contact us at 519-824-4120, ext. 56131 (please use this phone number and extension only).

Lunch and Snacks

Each child will be expected to provide their own lunch, two healthy snacks and should bring plenty to drink. Please avoid nut products.

Nut Products

All of our camps are nut free camps. Please help us keep the camp as nut-free as possible by choosing lunch and snack products that do not contain nuts. During weeks when a camper with a known allergy is identified to our staff, additional notification will be provided.


All camps take place on the beautiful University of Guelph campus, using many of the Athletics and University facilities available. We ensure that all camps are conducted in a safe environment with professional equipment and care.

Any visitors to the University of Guelph campus between 9am and 4pm should use the parking meters available in lot P12 to avoid parking fines. The round-about area in front of the W. F. Mitchell Athletics Centre is for emergency vehicles only and NO cars should be left unattended in this area. The Department of Athletics will not be responsible for parking fines incurred.
