Feedback about ROM Camp:

  • "Seeing instructors that have returned from prior years. It is great to see the familiar faces but also shows they enjoy being there."
  • My daughter has been attending since 2008 and we've never been disappointed.
  • "I am very nervous to leave my child when I don't know the staff. I felt instantly comfortable due to the quality of the staff, the number of staff on site and the excellent level of organization."
  • "My daughter loved the staff at the camp. All the counsellors were always courteous, helpful and pleasant."
