About Our Staff

Wenonah Summer Camp staff are outdoor education professionals, teachers, university and college graduates/students or senior high school students that share one thing in common: they are committed to providing each Wenonah camper with a positive and lasting Camp experience.

Our committed and caring leaders provide positive, nuturing experiences in which the accomplishments of each child are valued. Many staff are graduates of the Wenonah leadership training programs and were themselves campers at Wenonah. All staff members have current certification in lifeguarding and first aid. In addition to ongoing training throughout the year, each Wenonah staff member participates in a nine day staff training program prior to the start of Summer Camp.

Camp Wenonah has high expectations of every staff member, and those are reflected in Wenonah’s hiring policies. Potential staff members, including those previously employed at Camp Wenonah, submit an application each year to join the staff team. Each person has an interview and must successfully complete a police check. In addition to maintaining current lifeguarding and first aid qualifications, staff are expected to have qualifications in a variety of program areas. This allows Wenonah to ensure that staff will provide an exceptional camp experience for each camper.

The campers are at the very centre of everything at Wenonah. Camp’s excellent staff to camper ratio (1:4 on average, 1:3 in water-based activities) means that your son or daughter benefits from consistent individual attention on a daily basis. This allows for greater opportunities for camper success in both Wenonah’s instructional programs and daily recreational activities.

Each year, over 95% of staff members return to Wenonah. This means that our staff are familiar with and support the Wenonah philosophy, understand our expectations, and are committed to providing the best experience for each Wenonah camper.
