Activity Center

With over 30 outdoor activity centres, the Tri-County Children’s Water Festival creates a fun, hands-on learning experience for students that encourages further understanding of water concepts taught through the school curriculum.

The activity centres focus on four main themes:

  • Water Science & Technology: Students will learn about the water cycle, the physical science of ground and surface water, the treatment and distribution systems and the interactions between water and technology in their daily lives.
  • Water Conservation & Protection: Students will investigate how human activity can impact water. They will learn how to conserve, protect and manage water at home, at school and in the community.
  • Water Health & Safety: Students will learn about the role of water in human health, and safety around water.
  • Water & Society: Students will learn about the history of water, the relationship between people and the uses of water, and how to become stewards of water in their local and global community.
