Vikes Athletics and Recreation - Camps at Vikes Active Living


We can help keep your kids active and moving!

Looking for exciting ways to keep your kids active this year? Vikes camps offer everything from high performance sport camps, to sport development, climbing, outdoor, and non-competitive recreational camps.

Vikes Athletics and Recreation offers youth camps for children ages 5 to 17 years old. In addition to our popular summer camp program, we have expanded to include camps over winter break, spring break and pro-d days. Using both indoor and outdoor recreation facilities and fields on the University of Victoria campus, our experienced Vikes camp leaders will guide campers through a variety of games and activities. Campers will develop new skills, meet new friends, explore creativity, and experience exciting activities in a fun, safe and positive environment.

Throughout the year we have a number of different camps: seasonal camps (spring, summer, winter) over the school holidays.
