It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that on May 19th, the Ontario government announced all overnight camps in the province would be unable to operate this summer season. This is hard news to share and we know that the idea of summer without overnight camp is incredibly sad.
With consultation with our local and provincial health units, and with the health and safety of our campers, families, and communities as our most important factor, we have taken the step to cancel our existing summer day camp programs.
Thank you for your support and patience through these unprecedented and challenging times.
Thinking of you all. Stay safe. Stay well.

Below are a few frequently asked questions. Please send us a message if you have any further questions or need any clarification.
What is Circle R’s plan for this summer?
As mentioned above, our scheduled overnight and day camp programs have been cancelled. We continue to monitor the situation and will assess what programs or activities we may be able to offer later in the summer.
Similar to camp planning, we always have a Plan B, C, etc. Our team is devoting our time to planning for all contingencies and we’re ready to adapt as needed. We are thankful to be a part of the Ontario Camps Association to help navigate through these unprecedented times and come up with possible solutions for us and our camper families should the situation evolve.
What should I do right now if I have registered?
Please rest assured that we guarantee a 100% refund of all funds if requested.
You should have received an email and phone call with details of our de-enrolment process. Please call or email the camp office if you have not connected with us yet.
How can I help support Circle R, to ensure quality programs in the future?
Thanks for asking! Our summer camp season is our main source of revenue. Our horses need to eat year round and are not eligible for the CERB, so… we have launched a Horse Sponsorship Program – click here for more details!
