The HCWF combines Ontario curriculum requirements and offers fun, hands-on learning activity centres that are displayed throughout the event in a natural outdoor setting. Nearly 60 interactive activity centres teach children about water conservation and protection, water health and safety, water science and technology, and water and society.
Learn about water in a fun and interactive way
The Halton Children’s Water Festival provides curriculum linked education about all aspects of water through inquiry and investigation. Schools seeking Ontario EcoSchools certification can count their attendance at the HCWF as a field trip in the Curriculum category (one submission per grade level).
Community support makes Festival success
The Festival is made possible through generous contributions from Halton’s community which helps to further enhance festival activities and financially assist students to participate in the festival.
