Geography Camp


Uncover why geography is so much more than maps. Geography Camp sends our young geographers on an exploration of our vast campus, conducting simulations in our laboratories and using their innovative skills to tackle real-world problems.

These programs are being offered at the University of Calgary by Active Living and the Department of Geography.
