A Note About Camper Applications

Ryerson Athletics and Ryerson Summer Day Camps uses the CampBrain platform to manage camper applications and related information. The Department of Athletics has had the application process reviewed for compliance with Ryerson University’s privacy, information security, and records management requirements.

The Department of Athletics will remove data upon request from the authorized parent or guardian after a camper has completed the Day Camp program, otherwise data is removed from the CampBrain server five years after a child’s final year with the Day Camp.

If you have questions about the collection and storage of data, or would prefer to complete a paper application form, please contact Matt Edmonds by email (matt.edmonds@ryerson.ca) or phone (416-979-5000 ext. 3334).

Passwords: We highly recommend each user create a strong password for their CampBrain account. Change your password regularly and use a different password than you use for other websites. Make it difficult for others to guess your password by using a combination of:

  • uppercase letters
  • lowercase letters
  • numbers
  • other characters (&, !, $, etc.)

Passwords of at least eight (8) characters are highly recommended.

Families are asked to familiarize themselves with our registration policies before completing their camper’s application. Upon submitting their camper’s application, families acknowledge having reviewed these policies.

Any questions about our registration policies can be directed to the Camp Coordinator (matt.edmonds@ryerson.ca / 416-979-5000 ext. 3334).

Program Policy

Ryerson Day Camps may modify, add, or delete activities from the program based on camper interests and facility space.

In the very rare case where a program is cancelled because of low enrollment, we endeavour to give families as much notice as possible. We will transfer campers to another camp program if families are interested and space allows. Otherwise, we will provide you with a full refund.

“Last Minute Registration” Policy

Summer Camp

Registration closes 10 days before the first day of each Camp program. We are not able to accept last minute registrations for any of our Camp programs. Many of our camper groups are set, staff assigned, and schedules developed weeks in advance of our programs.

This policy applies to registration with our Before Care, After Care, and lunch options as well.

PA Day & March Break Camps

Registration closes 48 before the start of each PA Day Camp. We are not able to accept last minute registrations for any of our PA Day Camp programs.

Refund Policy

Summer Camp

Families can cancel their application no later than June 1, and receive a refund less a $50 cancellation fee per camper week cancelled. Refunds or credits are not available for any cancellation made after June 1.

Refunds or credits are not available for withdrawal from Lunch, Before Care, or After Care options after June 1.

Registrations received after June 1 are considered final. Refunds or credits are not available for registrations received after June 1.

PA Day & March Break Camps

PA Day Camp and March Break Camp payments are final. Refunds or credits are not available for PA Day and March Break Camp programs.

Transfer Policy

We will accommodate requests to transfer your child from your original registered program to another program provided:

  1. Your request is made at least two weeks before the first day of the requested program’s start date.
  2. Space is available in the requested program.
Dismissal Policy

Ryerson Day Camps has put in place Standards of Behaviour that all campers and LITs are expected to follow. The Camp Administration reserves the right to dismiss a camper who, in their opinion, is a hazard to the safety or rights of others, or who appears to have rejected the reasonable expectations of the Camp as set by the Standards of Behaviour.

Refunds or credits are not available if a camper is dismissed from the Day Camp program.

Support for Campers with Special Needs

While we are not currently able to offer one-on-one support for children with exceptionalities/special needs,  we do aspire to create a welcoming and inclusive camp opportunity for children of all abilities.

Prior to registration, please review our practices to best support campers with special needs.

Service Fees

We incur a cost of $50 for every cheque that is returned by the bank because of insufficient funds. Please note that if your cheque is returned to us by the bank because of insufficient funds, we will add a $50 service charge to your family account.
