Summer Camp Registrations Are Open!

It’s time to start thinking about summer camps as registration opens for Calgary’s top adaptive and inclusive summer programs!

Note: The following summer camps are presented in partnership with the Calgary Adapted Hub powered by Jumpstart. As part of this partnership the Calgary Adapted Hub is completing a research study to understand the impact programs have on the physical activity, participation, quality of life, and the overall health and wellbeing of our registrants. You can learn more about the Camps & Programs Research Study and the Calgary Adapted Hub by clicking on the links. Our study has been approved by the University of Calgary’s Conjoint Health Research Ethics Board (REB18-0292) and by Mount Royal University’s Human Research Ethics Board (102684). After you register for a camp a qualified member of the research team will contact you to provide you with more information about the study so you may make an informed decision about whether you wish to participate in the research. If you have any questions about this research opportunity please feel free to contact our Research and Knowledge Translation Coordinator Leticia Janzen at 403.955.5736 or cah.research@ucalgary.ca
