What is the camper to instructor ratio?

The minimum instructor to child ratio for aquarium camp is 1 to 12. Our instructors are marine and child education enthusiasts with training in First Aid and CPR.

What is a typical camp day?

Aquarium campers will truly be able to explore the wonderful world of water! Once signed in, each morning will begin by interacting and adventuring through the “gallery of the day”! They will then participate in a variety of gallery inspired activities both inside and out. After campers have refueled with lunch and some free time they will enjoy a dive show, special guest talk and/or behind the scenes journey. The exciting day will conclude with a fun wrap up and activity.

What if my child has special needs?

Unfortunately Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is unable to provide one-on-one supervision, adapted programming, or specific medical support. Please notify us if a support worker will be attending camp with your child.

What is extended care?

Extended care hours run from 8am-9am and 4pm-6pm and will include educational movies, games, and quiet activities. You may purchase extended care at an additional weekly flat rate. Inform your child’s instructor if you would like to pick them up earlier on specific days.

Late for pick-up?

Please make sure you are on time to pick up your child. We love caring for them but our staff has their own families to get home to.  We do reserve the right to charge you an additional $1.00 per minute late. If you know you are going to be late please contact the Camp Coordinator at 647-988-7453.
