UBC is dedicated to fostering a healthy workplace and providing staff and faculty with opportunities to pursue options that build health and wellbeing. Regular physical activity and overall fitness is part of a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle, but it can be challenging to fit this into our busy schedules. UBC Recreation has a variety of programs designed around you. With classes offered throughout the day and across campus, we can help fit activity into your day.

Please Note: To enjoy your free and discounted opportunities, please be prepared to provide a valid UBC Staff ID card. To get your Staff & Faculty discount for UBC Camps you must first register your child at the regular price and then submit the Discount Form for a reimbursement.
