We at LAUNCH Waterloo have been closely monitoring developments involving the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. With the provincial government announcement today closing all publicly funded schools in Ontario, we must follow their lead in minimizing risk and have made the difficult decision to cancel our March Break camp. The safety, health, and well-being of our participants and staff are our top priority.
We continue to be reassured by Region of Waterloo Public Health that the risk to residents of Waterloo Region remains low. For information and updates, please refer to the following resources:

We look forward to sharing information on future programming soon.
