LAUNCH Waterloo: March Break STEAM  Camp - CANCELLED

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. 


Join us for a week of science, technology, engineering, arts and math activities, and a signature LAUNCH Tournament!

This year’s theme: the Olympics. Learn about the science of sports, the environmental impacts, the cultural diversity and engineering of an event such as the Olympics 2020. Kids will work with STEAM coaches and their teams throughout the week on fun challenges, practices, and games.

Parents! On Friday, you get to join us and cheer on your team for a fun LAUNCH Tournament. Teams will use everything they learned throughout the week to tackle an Olympic challenge!
