Why Should I Help?

The Waterloo Wellington Children's Groundwater Festival aims to educate students and their communities about respecting and conserving valuable water resources so that they can help ensure a reliable water supply for the future. Volunteers are constantly needed to help with multiple responsibilities. 

Who will Attend the Festival?

More than 5,000 students from grades 2 through 5 will attend the week-long festival.

What Happens?

This year we're excited to announce a hybrid festival:
-In person festival at Guelph Lake Conservation Area ( 7743 Conservation Rd RR4, Guelph, ON N1H 6J1 ). From Tuesday June 5th to Friday June 9th. From 9am to 2pm. With 50+ hands-on activity centres that will challenge students from grades 2 to 5 to consider the importance of water to them as individuals and to their community.
-Virtual festival offered online on Tuesday June 13th at 10am. A one hour live virtual event, where students are challenged to learn and protect water.

What Do You Get For Your Participation?

All volunteers receive a Certificate of Appreciation. The Groundwater Festival is an approved activity for up to the 40 hour community volunteer requirements, if you have approval from your parents and high school to volunteer with us.

How Much of My Time is Needed?

We ask that volunteers participate in at least one full day at the in-person festival (8:30am to 2pm) 

There is no minimum time requirement for the virtual festival. 

What About the Virtual Festival?

For 2023, we can use volunteers to help produce videos and other online content that will be used during this year's virtual festival and shared as learning resources on our YouTube page. Volunteers with experience in presenting, teaching or video production are much appreciated.
