Spots Filling Fast For UFV’s Summer Camps

By Darren McDonald. UFV’s popular summer camps blast away the summer blues. Reserve your child’s spot for their chance to boost everything from brain power to basketball skills.

Like vegetables in strawberry smoothies, UFV’s camps fulfill family needs in one satisfying serving – providing a great escape from the “nothing-to-do” dog days while creating memories that will last a lifetime and providing kids with exciting activities while their parents are at work. Programs begin as early as July 7, while others run through late August with multiple options including: Think Fun (philosophy camp), Science Rocks!, Multisports, Soccer, Basketball, and Fashion Design. More information on all programs, including pricing, is available at
