Details and Fees

The fee is $175/week and includes two courses, daily refreshments (coffee, tea, baked goods and fruit) and door prizes. Space is limited and popular classes often fill quickly, so we suggest you register early to avoid disappointment.

This year, classes will be held in St John’s College, 2111 Lower Mall (view map). As the classrooms can be chilly, we suggest that you bring a sweater or light jacket.

Daily pay parking is available in the West Parkade, located at 2140 Lower Mall. Information about summer parking rates for Ageless Pursuits will accompany your course confirmation letter. Further information is also available by calling the UBC Parking and Access Control Services at 604.822.6786.
