About UBC Camps

We believe youth should experience the positive benefits of recreation and the opportunity to build confidence, social, and life skills through tailored camps programming. We strive to ensure that each and every participant in a UBC Camps program has an exciting, educational and memorable experience. We are aware that camp experiences remain with individuals long into their adult years, making it vitally important that we ensure each and every one of our camp programs is delivered at highest possible quality.

Favourite Camp Memory: Favorite Camp Memory: “Some of my favorite camp memories involve watching friendships grow throughout the week due to camp leaders creating a welcoming and fun environment for children to feel comfortable branching out and being silly in.” 

Adrian Greszata – Manager, UBC Aquatic Centre Camps

Adrian attended the University of Toronto for a degree in Child Psychology. After running the aquatic department for a private company for 5 years that taught swim and bike camps, Adrian found his new home at the UBC Aquatic Centre.

Favourite Camp Memory: “I don’t really have a favourite specific memory but I love seeing our instructors develop from fresh faces teaching their first classes to how they mature by the end of the summer and can handle any situation.”
