Western Canada’s biggest beginner-friendly hackathon

Welcome to


HackCamp revolves around inclusivity, diversity, and accessibility — we want you to bring your unique perspectives and experiences to the table!

Over the past 4 years, HackCamp, or formerly UBC Local Hack Day, has been focused on encouraging beginners and people who are curious about technology to work on a project that focuses on these three main pillars.
