The Active Kids Program is an Outreach program of the UBC School of Kinesiology. We provide recreational gymnastics, sport, and physical activity classes to individuals and communities of all ages and levels of ability. Our philosophy emphasizes fun, inclusive, developmentally appropriate, organized, safe, purposeful, and active movement experiences. We encourage physical literacy development and sport-specific skill acquisition, and promote lifelong participation in physical activity.

Subject: COVID 19- UBC Active Kids Summer Update, July 15, 2020

 

Dear Parent and Families,

 

We would like to thank you and appreciate your continued interest in our programs.

 

Safety remains our top priority. We are currently monitoring and evaluating risk factors to ensure that we not only meet UBC, Provincial Health authority, and WorkSafe BC return to operation guidelines, but also that we provide a fun and high quality experience for your kids!

 

At this time we are able to confirm that all summer programs and camps have been cancelled.

 

While the situation remains fluid, we are targeting a September launch date to reopen and offer programs.

 

We’ll keep you posted with any and all updates. If you have specific questions, please feel free to email us at active.kids@ubc.ca.

 

Keep staying safe and we will see you soon.

 

Kind Regards,

 

UBC Active Kids
