UFV Think Fun camps

UFV Think Fun campsThink Fun Camps are hands-on, activity-based camps for curious and creative kids. In each camp, children play games, explore, and engage in fun projects that encourage them to inquire, think, and problem-solve together. The camps are both educational and fun for campers from age 6 to 11.

Camps run July 13 to 17 and July 20 to 24 on the UFV Abbotsford campus. Each week-long camp has a selection of three different themes from which you can choose.
