Programs & Activities

The Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum helps guide instruction in our activities.

About Our Programs

Our customized outdoor education programs are tied to the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum and offer participants of all ages and grades a hands on experience that values community, interdependence, personal development, and an appreciation for the natural world.

Whether your goal is to develop community and team-building skills within your class, to celebrate another successful school year, or to achieve specific curriculum objectives, our staff will work with you to meet the themes and outcomes intended for your visit.

Typical Day at Wenonah

A typical visit to Camp includes the following program elements:

Pre-Breakfast Activities

Each morning, our staff provide a variety of morning programs for students. Activities may range from an energizing game of Gaga Ball to a peaceful morning yoga session.

Core Programs

Core Programs are typically offered during mornings and afternoons in one or two hour time blocks. Core Programs are divided between four distinct categories (Creative, Leadership, Adventure, and Recreation) to ensure a diversity of programs that enhance the group experience.  For larger groups (20 or more), participants are divided into smaller Core Program rotation groups (typically 10-15 students per group).

Group Wide Games

Groups are invited to select one of our Group Wide Games for each night at Wenonah. Participants take part with their full group during these activities for an opportunity to have fun, be active, and share in the experience of Camp together.

Daily Options

Check out the list of activities posted each week in the Boyes Lodge! Participants choose the from a mix of recreational and fun activities they wish to participant in during this time.

Evening Programs 

Groups are invited to select one of our evening programs for each night at Wenonah. These activities are scheduled as the last activity of the day.

Final Group Activity

On your final morning at Wenonah, participants enjoy one last activity before the final meal and departure home. These activities are typically a large Group Wide Game or a Daily Options style of programming so students can enjoy their last few hours at Wenonah together.
