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.

Did you know that discounts are available for all UBC Staff & Faculty members?


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.
