Unrivaled in scope and impact, the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is the convergence of over 70 scholarly associations, each holding their annual conference under one umbrella. Now in its 86th year, this flagship event is much more than Canada’s largest gathering of scholars.

Ryerson Summer Day Camps is pleased to host a special Day Camp program for 6 – 12 year olds exclusive to the children of Congress 2017 attendees.
