The benefits that camps and enrichment programs have on the development of children are widely known. Through our diverse year-round programing, the University of Waterloo strives to meet the needs of our community and have a positive impact in shaping the minds of tomorrow's leaders.
At Waterloo summer camps are more than just fun and games. Programs offered include Engineering Science Quest (ESQ), Catalyst, Music Camp, Peace Camp, Warriors Sports Camps, and Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS). Each experience is designed to provide children with hands on experiences in an innovative, fun and educational way. Programming is available for children from the earliest elementary school grades to the end of their high school career.
In addition to on campus programing, we also offer opportunities for off-campus summer camp experiences. Throughout the summer our ESQ teams visit communities that are beyond the reach of our main campus, bringing all the fun and excitement of Waterloo to various communities in Central and Southwestern Ontario.
Outreach to off-campus communities include, Brantford, Chatham, Orangeville, Owen Sound, Stratford, and the First Nation communities of, Aamjiwnaang, Kettle Point, Nawash, and Wapole Island. This outreach provides access for our youth enrichment programs to communities who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience what the University of Waterloo has to offer, positively impacting future generations.
Waterloo summer camps run from the end of June to the end of August. Additional information about our summer camps can be found here.
