The Ryerson University campus sits on a 21-acre site in the heart of downtown Toronto. The campus is a safe, modern, and attractive space. Most of its facilities are nestled to the north-east of the Yonge Street and Dundas Street East intersection.
Ryerson Summer Day Camp programs centre around two main facilities: the Recreation & Athletic Centre (RAC), located on the main campus, and the Mattamy Athletic Centre (MAC), located on the site of the former Maple Leaf Gardens on Carlton Street and just a five minute walk north of the RAC.
All Ryerson Summer Day Camp facilities meet and exceed the high standards of the Ontario Camps Association, as well as the standards of local Health and Fire Departments. Ryerson facilities are maintained in excellent condition, allowing campers to participate safely in programming of all sorts.
