What Participants Have Said...

My son loved it! He was super excited sharing what he learned. During Sunday dinner, my youngest was shaking his body while eating green peas and Davi said: "Stop! Choking hazard!"
Great job, Brooklyn and Colin (Home Alone Facilitators)!

Outdoor Activity

All of our PD Day programs encompass programs that take us outdoors (weather permitting) for the opportunity to experience a different area of the campus and explore nature.  Our outdoor programs are active and allow the opportunity for safe exploration and fun.

Swimming

Campers will have the opportunity to participate in a daily swim during our PD Day Programs. All swimmers are required to take a swim test on the day of our program. This time in the pool is lots of fun as our counsellors are in the pool with them. We have other activities for those that choose not to swim.

Seasonal Crafts

Each PD Day has a craft of the day for the campers. This is an age appropriate craft and one that ties to either the season or the theme of the program. This is a great opportunity for campers to explore their creativity and bring something very creative home.

Program Themes

All of our PD Day Programs have a theme that will be intertwined throughout the day in our activities. Some themes allow campers to be creative and come to the program in a fun costume that is connected to our theme.

Friendships

Campers get an opportunity to reconnect with friends they made during summer camp and make new ones while enjoying a day full of adventures.  

Indoor Games

Programming takes place in the Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre providing us many opportunities to play with fun equipment.
