North Vancouver Camps

This year we are bringing our programming to North Vancouver!

We are partnering with Family Services of the North Shore and the North Shore Neighbourhood House to provide UBC Geering Up Camps in North Vancouver for the first time! Camps will be held at 113 E 3rd St, North Vancouver, BC (Community House of the North Shore Neighbourhood House).

Camp Descriptions

The activities done at camp are different each year. Our team of Instructors plan the curriculum at the end of June. We don’t send out exact schedules, as our camps are fluid and our instructors tailor each week to the campers. The table below should give you a good idea of the activities we do in each camp!

We avoid repeat activities that have occurred in the recent past to avoid kids experiencing the same camp year to year – so every summer, get ready for a brand new week of science and engineering! In our North Vancouver location we will be running one camp per week beginning July 8th, through to August 16th. Each week will be a different camp, so feel free to sign up for multiple weeks! Camps in North Vancouver focus on youth entering Grades 4 – 7.
