Cameron Heights Pool closure

As you may be aware, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) is currently engaged in province-wide labour negotiations. As a result of ongoing job action by OSSTF, all evening and weekend community use of schools operated by the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) will be cancelled starting on February 1, 2020 for seven calendar days. 

Update from WRDSB: all evening and weekend community use of schools will be cancelled until March 21, 2020. 

Cameron Heights Pool will continue to be closed until March 21, 2020.

Registered users and renters will be contacted by staff.

Cameron Heights is a great pool for swim lessons, lots of pool space and smaller class sizes.   

We offer a wide variety of fitness programs from  stroke correction to improve your swim technique, master swim club, triathlon training programs, aqua cycle and boot camp style pool fitness classes.  

In addition, we offer pool rental times for sport groups, clubs and family celebrations on Saturday and Sunday afternoon and evenings.
