Summer Camps FAQs

Registration opens on Feb. 1, between 2 and 6 a.m..

We can't provide a specific registration start time because registration opens after the system completes its overnight upgrade. The good news? This reduces the risk of website crashes because not everyone is trying to register at the same time. 

More than 10,000 campers attend UCalgary Summer Camps annually. We have different camp start times to minimize traffic jams and help you get your child dropped off and picked up as quickly as possible. 

If you don't have an Active Living account, create one in advance. Make sure you can login to your account and all contact information for you and your child(ren) is correct.

If you are having issues with your account, contact Client Services: 403.220.7749

If the camp you are interested in is full, click "join notify list". 

Often we can't open more spots because of space, staffing, and/or equipment needs, but occasionally, more spaces or sessions are added. So, join the notify list but don't count on getting a spot. We suggest also registering for an alternative camp. 

No, check in and check out for most camps is done curb-side. Where to go will be sent to you via email.

Some camps require checking in inside a building. If this is the case for you, a printable parking pass will be included in your registration confirmation email.
