ROOTS participants begin to lay the foundation of leadership skills, while getting to experience the best-of- the-best of being a senior camper at Camp Wenonah.

ROOTS is a small group experience. It focussed on group-based decision making that gives participants an opportunity to customize their Camp experience together. Teamwork and cooperation are valued as part of this program.

ROOTS is led by experienced Camp staff members, who facilitate programs and guide participants through their time at Camp. As well, staff provide ongoing feedback to participants and help facilitate participant group-based decisions.

Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Independence: Choosing Wenonah for your camper means they are joining a community that celebrates them for who they are and supports them to achieve their potential. We want campers to discover new passions, and for them to realize they can do anything they put their minds to.
  • Physicality: A skill-intensive experience that challenges participants to develop their skills in canoeing, climbing, swimming, kayaking, sailing, and so much more. Canoe trips and other activities also featured.
