Campus to buzz with events for all

Options range from Shakespeare to the Web

From summer camps to seniors' courses, the Internet to Bard on the Beach, a new campus-wide roster is designed to help everyone make the most of summer.

"UBC is a lively, exciting and beautiful summer destination, but this year a campus-wide initiative has been designed to promote a full range of activities that serve the entire community," says Mary Holmes, director of marketing services for Continuing Studies.

Called Summer 2000: Destination UBC, the lineup includes educational, cultural and recreational activities for children, teens, parents, seniors and tourists.

Intensive weeklong courses on Internet design are just one of the new options. Programs for parents coincide with the wealth of sports, science and music camps for children and teens. Discussion groups have been created to augment performances at the Chamber Music Festival, Bard on the Beach, as well as Festival Vancouver.

A film festival and lectures by well-known authors have been added to such favourites as the Third Age Spring Lecture Series for people over the age of 55, now in its 26th year.
