UBC Spring Camps
This spring break (Mar 20 – Mar 24, 2017), we are proud to offer the following Spring Camps for youth:
- Scuba Camp: The Scuba Camp, for ages 8-12, provides a fun and exciting week where campers will learn key scuba diving techniques while having the opportunity to swim freely underwater in the new UBC Aquatic Centre. The camp includes one hour of learning techniques, followed by two hours of in-water modules starting from the shallow-end moving to the deep-end as the course progresses. (REGISTER)
- Swim N’ Splash: The Swim N’ Splash camp provides campers ages 5-12 an opportunity to engage in activities that enhance movement skills, teamwork and sportsmanship in an aquatic environment at the new UBC Aquatic Centre.
