About Water Programming
With an emphasis on focused skill enhancement, we are pleased to offer the following waterfront programming available upon request and at the discretion of the Outdoor Education Director.
For attending groups, please be sure to check with your school board administration or organizing body to ensure waterfront programs are allowed for your group and to ensure participants meet the required swimming standards in advance of your visit to Camp.
Canoeing (Tandem Style)
Along the shores of Clear and Saw Lake, our instructional tandem canoe program allows campers to gain paddling experience and comfort on the water whilst enjoying the beautiful lakefront scenery that is uniquely Canadian.
Expedition Canoe (Group Paddling Initiative)
Build co-operative groups skills by paddling one of our 25-foot expedition canoes along the shores of Clear Lake and learn about Canada’s own voyageur history and experience.
Kayaking (Flatwater Single Style)
Wenonah is pleased to offer a flatwater kayaking program that builds individual skill development in a fun and safe environment.
The health and safety of students, teachers and all visitors to Camp Wenonah has been, and continues to be our top priority in the delivery of our Outdoor Education and Summer Camp experiences. Wenonah staff are hired for their ability to provide strong leadership and to be positive role models for the students in their care.
All staff attend a training program at the start of the Outdoor Education Centre season, and hold current qualifications in swimming and first-aid standards including, National Lifeguard (NL), Bronze Cross, Standard First Aid, CPR ‘C’, and Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
Waterfront programs involve both on shore and on water supervision components to ensure participants understand proper skills and safety procedures during each of their activities.
All participants, staff and visitors to these programs are required to wear personal flotation devices (PFDs) at all times on both the dock and in the boat while participating in the activity.
