UFV Think Fun camps

‌Think 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 7 to 12.

UFV Think Fun Summer Camps

Camps run July 10 to 19 and July 17 to 21 on the UFV Abbotsford campus from 9 am to 4 pm. Each week-long camp has a selection of three different themes from which you can choose.
