For Youth – SK to Grade 8
Circle R Day Camp is a wonderful introductory camp experience. Day campers experience the thrills, fun, and adventure of camp and return home each evening. Day campers can play, explore, spend time in the outdoors and make new friends while having the time of their lives! Best of all, day campers become part of a caring camp community that encourages and supports them while they practice “growing up!”
Day Camp exposes campers to a wide variety of activities so they can get a flavour for all the elements of a great camp experience. All of Circle R’s camp programs are available to Day campers, according to their age and abilities. Day campers are placed in groups of eight with one or two counsellors; our youngest “Tyke” campers have two counsellors with each group. Including program staff, the overall ratio of campers to staff at Day Camp is 3:1 and the relatively small capacity of campers per session allows more personal interaction and greater flexibility in day-to-day programming.
Horses and the Riding Program
There’s plenty of horse time for everyone! Day campers ride every day (weather permitting). Circle R riding programs help campers become more comfortable and confident around horses, increase their riding skills and knowledge, have fun, and enjoy the benefits and excitement of working with horses!
Facilities, Meals, and Transportation
Day campers will enjoy nutritious home-cooked lunch prepared by Circle R staff and served in the main lodge. Circle R will also provide morning and afternoon snacks as well as cold drinks throughout the day. Bus transportation is provided with stops located throughout the city. Our staff travel on the buses with the campers every day. Circle R believes that Day Camp program actually begins and ends on the bus!
