The Camp team is working hard to provide the highest quality and safest camp experience possible. We have updated or added safety policies and procedures to reflect current public health strategies, including:

  • Smaller group sizes with separate classrooms, staff, and supplies to limit different group interactions.
  • Modified drop-off and pick-up procedures.
  • Routine cleaning and disinfecting practices.
  • Fully vaccinated Camp staff — we strongly recommend all Campers be vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Strongly encouraging the wearing of masks in the Aquarium.

For children who have attended Aquarium Day Camps in the past, the Camp will look a bit different this year. Here is what you can expect:

  • No extended care.
  • Increased opportunities for hand washing and availability of hand sanitizer.
  • Snacks and hot lunch programs will not be available. Campers will need to provide a litterless lunch and two snacks per day.
  • Pizza lunch will be provided on Fridays for all Campers at no additional cost.
  • Campers can register for a maximum of two Camp programs.

As the guidance from the Province of Ontario and Toronto Public Health evolves, our policies and procedures will be updated to reflect the most up-to-date information.


If written cancellation is received more than 15 days before the session start date, a refund will be provided, minus the non-refundable administration fee of $50. No refunds or cancellations will be granted 14 days or less before the session start date. Partial refunds will not be given for missed days.

Exceptions will be made for COVID-19 related circumstances.

Covid-19 related cancellations:

If Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada fully or partially cancels your Camp week due to COVID exposure at Camp, the Aquarium will strive to reschedule your Camp reservation. If rescheduling is not possible, the Aquarium will issue a prorated refund for missed Camp days.

Missed program days will not be refunded or rescheduled unless the Camper has a COVID-19 related illness. If a family member or Camper shows symptoms of COVID-19, they must stay home, and the Aquarium will refund a prorated amount.

If a Camper falls ill while at Camp, they will be placed in a quiet room with staff supervision and isolated from the rest of their Camp group. The Aquarium will contact caregivers to pick up their Camper immediately. Protocols for returning to Camp will reflect the guidance from Toronto Public Health.

Camp COVID-19 policies and procedures may change based on updated local and provincial guidance and health recommendations. Registrants will be notified of any changes.
