Cedar Camp


CEDAR campers get a whirlwind tour of the research being conducted by students and researchers around campus. They also take part in daily arts & crafts and outdoor recreational activities. All the while, campers learn about the wealth of post-secondary educational opportunities that exist right in their own backyard. CEDAR programming focuses on balance and respecting the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical parts of ourselves. Activities will focus on confidence building, teamwork, and self-reflection to help campers realize their own potential both within and outside of the classroom.

Every year, CEDAR Summer camp provides an opportunity for approximately 30 local Indigenous youth between the ages of 8-12 to explore UBC campus through fun and interactive programming. This camp is made possible by the generous support of our various partners on campus including the Faculties of Science and Land and Food Systems; as well as the First Nations House of Learning. More information about our partners can be found here.

“CEDAR camp is the best camp I have been to and I have been to a lot of camps. All the other camps were fun, but I think CEDAR was 10/10.”

“I liked CEDAR summer camp because I like to learn about my First Nations culture. I like Science, especially about fish. And I like swimming.”
