Duck Day

Duck Day

The Duck Day will take place in April at the activity area next to the Ångström Laboratory. Entrance is free for everyone!

The Duck Day is the Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students family event designed to entertain children and families. This is done with fun activities such as a treasure hunt, horseback riding, fishing booth, face painting, and much more. We want to create a pleasant day for both young and old. You will also have the opportunity to visit the construction site where the students build their rafts for the river rafting that takes place on April 30th. Food and beverages will be sold to ensure that nobody goes hungry. In case of bad weather, activities will be held inside.

The goal of the Duck Day is to bring joy to all those who visit the event, but also to the children who are unable to attend due to illness. Therefore, we collaborate with the Uppsala University Hospital’s Children’s Fund to contribute to give these children a more enjoyable life. For the charity, some of the entertainment during the Duck Day will cost a little, but not so much that not all will be able to afford it.

The profit from the Duck Day will be donated directly to the Uppsala University Hospital’s Children's Fund, a unique activity for Uppsala. It is important that the sick children may be children who develop despite their illness. Therefore, the Fund has as its sole mission is to promote the game, stimulation and culture for children at the University Hospital. The Fund operates wherever University Hospital cares for sick children.
