Kids Fit at Home Challenge

Bringing fitness and fun to the comfort of your home with the Kids Fit at Home Challenge! 

Registration is CLOSED for this free program.

The Kids Fit program is an interactive program for kids aged 7-12 years who live in UTown@UBC to engage in physical activity in an enjoyable social setting! Since 2011, the program has offered kids meaningful, inclusive and age appropriate physical activities on campus. 

To keep everyone safe and to ensure we can continue the fun, this year’s Kid Fit is a fun 5-week challenge for kids delivered online. Participation is free but registration is required.

Each week will feature a themed Movement Mission with a number of activities for kids to complete. This includes participating in an online session and fun self-guided exercises to complete,  either in the house or out in the yard. The themes are:

Week 1: Fit Fun
Week 2: Gymnastics
Week 3: Dance
Week 4: Multisport
Week 5: Sports Day

After completing each Movement Mission, participants will collect a secret word and track their accomplishment in their Kids Fit Passport. Once all the weeks’ activities are complete, participants will receive a prize – a specially chosen kit or indoor/outdoor game set ($30 value).
