With the Winter-holiday break just around the corner, the SFU Recreation & Athletics department is once again offering a selection of entertaining and educational all-day camps for children and youth, ages 5 – 18 years, during the week following New Year’s (Jan. 2-4).

The camps - in athletics, recreation and education – are open to everyone. They’re supervised by an outstanding staff of university students, varsity athletes and coaches, and professionals from the community. (Both early and late supervision are available.)

So gather up the little (and not-so-little) angels and head to SFU’s Burnaby Campus. The fun and games include:

•    Clan Kids - Jan. 2-4: Separate camps for freshman (5-7 yrs.) and juniors (8-12 yrs.); A classic recreational camp packed with activities including sports, creative games, and arts & crafts. A great social atmosphere for children, activities are catered to the different age groups and promise to be a positive experience for all.

•    Mini University - Jan. 2-4: For youth aged 8-14yrs; Another classic, campers will get to learn university subjects at a level which is both fun and easy to comprehend. The staff will be offering one module consisting of criminology, engineering, and media & broadcasting.

•    Symphony Safari I - Jan. 2-4: For kids aged 5-10 yrs.; In partnership with Val Lande Music Studio, campers in Symphony Safari I will get to discover music in an entertaining and creative way. Highlights of the camp include learning about the sections of the orchestra, learning to play rhythm instruments and preparing a final performance that parents are invited to attend.

•    Student Trainers Sports Med Clinic - Jan. 3: For youth aged 14-18 yrs.; Spend a day with the SFU’s athletic therapists and physiotherapists in the Sports Clinic. Through demonstrations and practical sessions, students will learn general taping techniques (including ankles) and management of common athletic injuries. They’ll get a thorough overview of the sports-medicine field with lots of hands on experience – not to mention a good base to help out their high school teams..
