Our day camp programs seek to ignite your child’s lifelong passion for physical activity. Program curriculum focuses on creating a fun, safe and encouraging environment geared towards promoting self-esteem, positive social interaction, co-operation and leadership development. Our camps are led by UFV Kinesiology students trained in physical literacy.

Active FUNdamentals

During this week, your child will work on developing fundamental movement and motor skills like running, throwing, catching and kicking. We will practice these skills through fun and co-operative game-based programming, as well as arts, crafts and educational sessions.
