The UPEI Panther Academy is pleased to announce that one of its original day camp offerings will be permanently renamed “Mama J’s Jelly Bean Gym” in memory of longtime Athletics and Recreation employee Janice Robertson, who passed away suddenly on May 29.
Panther Academy day camps begin at the end of June, but registration is still open and continues throughout the summer. Camp offerings include preschool camps, sport camps, fun ‘n’ fitness camps, culinary camps, creative camps, mini university camps, and more.

This week’s Wave Athletes of the Week are Keirstin Visser from the women’s hockey team and DJ Smith from the men’s basketball team.
