I just signed up my two children for summer camp at Richmond Hill Country Club Day Camp. With the early bird registration deadline coming up, I thought I would share with you what a wonderful place it has been for my family.

My daughter Brooklyn is entering her 5th summer as at RHCC Day Camp in the Cheetah unit and my son Bentley is entering his 2nd summer in the Coyote. Brooklyn has been a camper there since she was 2.5 years old and in diapers, and hasn’t looked back since.

I myself know this Camp very well. I worked there as a counsellor when I was sixteen years old and both my younger siblings were campers there as well.

You might ask: “What do I love about this place?”
The Camp sits behind the Country Club on acres of land and is filled with trees and lush greenery. The campers swim twice daily – an instructional swim in the outdoor pool in the morning and a recreational swim in the afternoon in the indoor pool, when the sun is at its strongest. I love the indoor pool because the kids still get to swim if it is raining outside. I also love the fact that if it is raining or there is a heat wave outside, the kids can still enjoy their day comfortably with some indoor, air conditioned, locations.

The counsellors are enthusiastic and truly care about the kids. Both of my kids counsellors from last summer, still babysit my kids.
The camp encourages socialization and group integration. Both my kids made a lot of new friends at RHCC Day Camp, many who they remain in contact with over the winter months.

How does a typical day of Camp work?
You have an option to put your child in bussing or can drop them off yourself. The kids meet one of their counsellors at the top of the hill bring them down to their unit area. The youngest children in the Cubs, Bears and Grizzlies units are dropped off in a gated park at the top of the hill where they have a special drop off activity to participate in, such as music or dance,to help the campers start their day off with lots of fun.

To begin the camp day, all of the campers gather in the main field in front of the stage, where they participate in an energizer, practice the camp dance, celebrate birthdays and have daily announcements. For the rest of the day, the kids have a fun filled schedule of structured activities. They have lunch with their unit and sit on picnic benches in the large lunch tent. You have a choice of ordering your children a hot lunch (for an extra charge) or you can pack your own. Every Friday, all campers are given a hot dog lunch at no extra cost.

The indoor swim is a “free swim” where the kids can play and enjoy the pool with safe supervision. The outdoor swim is an “instructional swim” and the kids are put into groups based on their swim level and work toward their badges. Both swimming activities have life guards and staff monitoring at all times. Brooklyn and Bentley got their swim badges this summer which was a bonus.

When the day ends, the kids are escorted by their counsellors up the hill to the buses or to their parents.
