The Old Barn Community Centre Camps

We are thrilled to announce a new collaboration this year with MyUNA camps! Located in the heart of the beautiful UBC campus, the Old Barn Community Centre has been bringing families and friends together since 2004. Their passion for community connection is what motivates them to offer extensive recreation and hundreds of programs for kids, families, UBC members, and visitors alike. Every year, they offer spring break and summer camps to keep kids active and having fun.

This year, we are excited to partner alongside The Old Barn Community Centre to provide several of our camps at The Old Barn, which is in the same neighborhood as our Vancouver camps! They are located on campus at 6308 Thunderbird Blvd, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z4.
