Elementary French Camps

2023 Summer Camps registration is OPEN! Click the button below to register today!

Nous avons hâte de vous présenter nos nouveaux camps en français! Le programme des camps en français sera traduit des camps en anglais. Nous ne recommandons pas de vous inscrire au même camp en français et en anglais, car il y aura du contenu répété.

Geering Up s’attend à ce que tous les participants à nos camps en français puissent lire, écrire et parler français à un niveau comparable à celui d’un élève en immersion française. Cependant, pour assurer la compréhension des campeurs, nous aurons une section de vocabulaire au début de chaque journée ou de chaque activité avec des termes spécifiques pertinents pour les activités de la journée.
Introducing our brand new in-person French STEM camps! Curriculum for French camps will be adapted from the English camp equivalent. Instructors will teach our hands-on, engaging STEM curriculum en Français! Our goal is to facilitate STEM learning and fun while helping your child practice their French skills. French camps are only offered at our UBC Vancouver location.

We do not recommend registering for the same French and English camp as there will be repeat content.

Geering Up expects that all participants in our French camps are able to read, write, and speak French at a level akin to a French Immersion student. However, to ensure campers’ comprehension, we will have a vocabulary section at the beginning of every day or activity with specific terms relevant to the activities for the day.

Cultivate your creativity while learning about the world around us. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) camps combine the design processes and concepts of STEM with hands-on creative projects that allow campers to explore their artistic side! Learn about the sky, sea, cells, and more in our co-enriched environment where participants can explore their STEM passions alongside creative pursuits. Join us for a week filled with design inquiry and fun hands-on projects! Full STEAM ahead!

Unleash your creative side through original engineering projects and combine the worlds of art and science!





Please read the information below regarding our policies in place for camps this year.

Geering Up operates as a non-profit organization and incurs substantial fees for each cancellation. To offset these costs, our cancellation and transfer policy is as follows:

One week or less before the program’s start date: 50% refund of program price

Before & After Care: Geering Up offers supervision for campers who need to be dropped off before camp or picked up after camp ends. We offer before care from 8:15 AM - 9:00 AM Monday through Friday. We offer standard after care from 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM or the extended after care from 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM. We offer both after care programs Monday through Friday. If provincial health restrictions due to COVID-19 change and Geering Up must cancel Before and After Care, participants will be contacted with advanced notice and refunded for this service in full.
*Only our UBC Vancouver and UBCO Kelowna locations offer Before & After Care.

Lunch Program: If purchased, campers receive a main course, side, and drink for their lunch each day. The lunch program costs are only for Mondays to Thursdays as all campers at UBC Vancouver Location receive a pizza lunch on Friday.
*Only our UBC Vancouver Camps offer a lunch program.

Geering Up programming is designed and intended for individual participants, not groups. Having a group (local or visiting) register for our programming greatly impacts the quality of the individual participant's experience; something that is extremely important to us. As such, group registrations are prohibited.

Please note that Geering Up will withdraw all participants without a refund who are found in breach of the group registration policy at any point before or after programming begins.

Each location's camp schedule can be found on our location pages. Click here to view all locations.
