Global Families Program

Global Families events provide low-cost opportunities for you and your family to experience Calgary culture and meet other UCalgary students who are studying here with their families.

Global Families

Once a month, we run day trips to places like Calaway Park; Telus Spark Science Centre; the Calgary Zoo; Heritage Park, and many more. Throughout the year, we also offer educational workshops for children through the Minds in Motion program, as well as various activities including: swimming; the climbing wall; racquet sports, and other indoor/outdoor sports activities in partnership with the Active Living Program.

Global Families runs from September-April, following the academic calendar. To learn about upcoming Global Families events, make sure you are signed up for the International Student Services newsletter.
