By Anne Russell. If you’re a parent looking for a way to prevent the chorus of ‘I’m borrrrrrred’ in your house this coming summer, consider giving your child or teen a week to remember at the University of the Fraser Valley.
Let your teen bring out their inner fashionista. They will experience life as a designer, learn from top industry professionals, and create one-of-a-kind projects for their fashion portfolio. The $250 one-week camp is for ages 14-18, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 8-12 at the Abbotsford campus. Visit ufv.ca/fashion for more information and to register.
Back by popular demand, UFV’s Science Rocks summer day camps are designed for local students in Grades 4-6 (as of Sept ’13). Each of the five different camps is structured to encourage the development of scientific problem-solving skills and to help campers learn fundamental scientific principles in a fun, hands-on way.
A week-long camp is $250, and includes all supplies, lunches, t-shirt, and completion certificate. There is a discount if you enroll your child in more than one week, or if you have more than camper: two camp registrations is $450; three $675; four $900; five $1,150.
