Wenonah Games

Over the last three days of Periods Two and Four, campers and staff are consumed by the remarkable spirit of Wenonah Games.

Wenonah Games is an Olympic-style, three-day event during which campers choose from a wide variety of activities (at all levels of competition) to earn points for their team. Teamwork, cooperation, and sportsmanship are valued components of this favourite program.

Campers are placed on one of three houses (Aki, Dawaa, or Zibbins) in advance of their first Summer at Camp, and they remain a member of that house for life. Family members are automatically placed in same house.

Wenonah Games features over 200 activities during the course of competition. Some activities are skill-based, others team-based, and others are fun activities rooted in the spirit of Camp.

At the end of the Summer, the Wenonah Games Challenge Cup is presented to the team with the highest combined point total from July Camp, August Camp, and our staff training week.

Below, we thought it was fun to share a look back at the history of Wenonah Games. We hope you enjoy it!

Mickle Island Canoe Race

The final event of Wenonah Games each month is also the most thrilling. The Mickle Island Canoe Race is a 2km paddle for boats of three consisting of one staff member and two campers representing their team. The event has often determined the winner of that month’s Wenonah Games. The names of the paddlers from the winning boats are engraved on a trophy which resides in the Boyes Lodge.
