Summer has always been a time when campus is in full bloom and bustling, filled with the happy laughter of campers, the lawn dotted with brightly coloured shirts as explorers small and tall make new friends and lasting memories. During these extraordinary times, however, and in compliance with the Government of Ontario’s decision to close all summer camps due to COVID-19, it is with disappointment that we announce the cancellation of Ridley’s Summer Programmes for 2020, with exception to ELearning courses
This is not a decision we make lightly. We know these programmes are where children and young adults are challenged, inspired and compelled to think outside the box; to take risks and develop grit and resilience; and forge bonds in a warm, inclusive environment. Each year, our Summer Programmes team looks forward to welcoming new and returning campers to Ridley, and to creating special memories for every child. We are saddened that we will not be able to do so this summer—but recognize it is imperative that we do what is safest for our communities.
We also understand the financial burden this pandemic has put on many. Rest assured, we will be refunding registrants 100 per cent of all fees paid, including any registration fees, in short order.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
should you have any questions.
We sincerely thank you for your understanding and support.
It’s certainly hard to imagine a quiet summer here without you, but we look forward to welcoming your family back in the future. We’re already planning new and exciting camp offerings for next summer, and will be sharing details with you in the months ahead.
The Ridley College Summer Programmes team wishes each and every one of you a safe, healthy and happy summer.
