Popular children’s summer sports camps are returning to UBCO

Looking for a cool experience for your kids over the long hot summer?

Do they want to discover what university is all about, explore their creativity, or have an outdoor adventure?

For the first time, the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus is offering themed activity camps that cater to a variety of interests for children and youth aged 7 to 17.

This summer, UBC has a lot to offer kids and teens to fill their summer.

In addition to the returning Heat Athletics’ sports camps, the new U Camp offers week-long day camps.

The feature camp is The Power of Being a Girl, an empowering week of leadership, team building and lifestyle skills for girls aged 11 to 14. Fun, fitness and friendship are also emphasized.

And there is much more. Kids from 7 to 17 can choose from such themes as Mini U, Kreative Kids, Multi-Sports, UBC Survivor or have an adventure with water relays.

U Camps run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with options to drop off as early as 8 a.m. and pick up as late as 5 p.m. to give parents more flexibility.

“Our themed camps provide a great opportunity for children and youth to try something that is both different and fun,” said Layne McDougall, campus recreation coordinator.

“Participating in these camps will allow kids to utilize some of the amazing facilities and experience a little bit of what we have to offer here at the Okanagan campus.”

The always popular Heat Athletics sports camps are back, offering instruction and conditioning in volleyball, basketball and soccer.

Sports camps are for boys and girls from 13 to 17, with the exception of soccer which is for girls from ages 8 to 12.

Parents are advised that space is limited.
