Why Wenonah

Our outdoor education programs all place a value on community, interdependence, personal development and an appreciation and respect for the natural world.

Wenonah offers programs that challenge and stimulate participants of every age and experience through a traditional outdoor education centre model.

Our programs all place a value on community, interdependence, personal development, and an appreciation and respect for the natural world. Committed and caring leaders take pride in the accomplishments of each participant. Positive, wholesome experiences are at the centre of the Wenonah experience.

School and community groups take field trips to The Camp Wenonah Centre for Outdoor Education for a wide variety of reasons. Some come to develop an appreciation and respect for the natural world. Some come to strengthen group bonds and increase awareness of one’s self. Still others attend as a special beginning or end to a school year that celebrates the contributions of each group member.

Whatever your initial reason(s) for coming to Wenonah may be, we know that your group will leave having experienced much more! With individuals living and working together in an overnight camp setting, guided by skilled staff providing leadership and facilitation, many positive benefits are realized.

The Camp Wenonah Centre for Outdoor Education operates in May, June, September and October. We provide a full service approach, which includes all programming, leadership, meals, accommodation, and administrative support for each visiting group.

We look forward to sharing the magic of Wenonah, and to welcoming your group for a visit.
