Childhood is a time when opportunities abound and options are nearly endless. And nothing catches that feeling of excitement, fun, and immense possibility quite like summer vacation! When the kids are off school, it’s time to play outside, try new things, and dive deep into passions and emerging hobbies. The University of Calgary has a host of amazing summer camps for kids of all ages and interests. Embrace the opportunity and help your kids explore their potential this summer!

Active Living at the University of Calgary is dedicated to enriching the lives of all Calgarians, no matter their age. They offer quality programming and educational experiences all year round to promote lifelong active living and help you and your family get the most out of life. They are committed to being an innovative leader in health and wellness and they offer a huge variety of programs, including excellent summer camps.

Do you have children from ages 4 – 17 years? Well, no matter their interests, you are sure to find something they love with the University of Calgary summer camps. You can send your child to Mini University or Mermaid University. You’ll find everything from Business Camps that give young entrepreneurs the tools to be successful, to learning to play like the Dinos from real University of Calgary Dinos athletes. You can register your child in STEM and arts camps, aquatics, sports, and outdoor camps, and there are even camps for kids who want to make their own movies, work with animals, or study geography and astronomy!

Some of the University of Calgary camps are off-site, such as outdoor adventure camps, a Cochrane gymnastics camp, and other unique options. Most camps that run on the main University of Calgary campus, however, also offer before or aftercare for busy families, where campers will enjoy a variety of activities, from sports and crafts to watching a movie on the big screen.

This summer, your kids have the potential for something amazing! Summer camps teach so much, from self-confidence to fundamental physical skills to harnessing innate creativity. Through it all, every camper will enjoy new adventures with new friends, having fun and building their confidence as they learn. Registration starts on February 1, 2023, so register soon for the best selection and get ready for a summer to remember!
