PD Day &
March Break Camps

PLEASE NOTE: OUR MARCH BREAK HAS BEEN CANCELLED:

Please note that the Kitchener Waterloo Humane Society has cancelled our March break camp. Following updated guidance from health agencies, and the recent closures of all municipal camps and programs, we have decided to follow their recommendations and cancel our March break camp as well.

The decision to cancel is a tough one, but is being made for the safety of our clients, staff and campers, as well as to keep vulnerable populations safe and healthy. For those registered for the camp, please check your email for further information about a refund or credit to use for our summer camp. We appreciate your understanding at this time.
