2018 Registration Is Now Open!

2018 registration is now underway.

We are pleased to offer a Priority Registration period with a significant discount on camper fees to Summer Camp families. The Priority Registration Period is available through Friday, September 8.

Registration is on a first come, first served basis for returning families for all Camp Periods. With many campers increasing the length of their stay at Camp each year, we are unable to commit to holding spaces from one year to the next.

Associate Director Caron Brick is at our Burlington Office accepting 2018 Summer Camp applications throughout July and August.

When applications are received, they are entered in order of receipt. Families will receive an automatic email as confirmation of their application(s). If you do not receive an automatic email your application has not been submitted and your camper is not registered.

If you have any questions you can reach Caron at (905) 631-2849 or by email (caron@campwenonah.com).

Preparing for Camp

Over 1000 campers spend parts of their summer at Wenonah each year. That means that we get lots of questions from parents about how to best prepare their eager campers for the Wenonah experience.

Below are answers to some of the most common questions we get from campers and families:

What should I pack for my child?

There are lots of important items to make sure you send with your child to Camp, and also some things we ask that you not send.

When is Visitor’s Day?

Visitor’s Day is held twice during the Summer, for one month campers only:

Saturday, July 15 – July one month campers, July POLARIS, July WCITs

Saturday, August 12 – August one month campers, August POLARIS, August WCITs

What if my child is bring medications to Camp?

If your child is taking the Camp bus from Julliard Public School, we ask that you give all of your child’s medications (and written instructions) to a Camp staff member before your camper boards the bus. Look for the designated table at the bus stop where you can drop off your child’s medication.

The staff member will ensure the medications get delivered to the nurses safely upon arrival at Camp. Please ensure that all medications are in their original containers and timing/dosages are clearly marked.

We provide all ‘as needed’ medications (i.e. Benadryl, Tylenol, Ibruprofen and Gravol) so you don’t need to send them!

When your child returns home, please remember to pick up your child’s medications from the Camp staff member who was on the bus when you pick them up at Julliard P.S.

If you are dropping your child off at Camp by car, please visit the Health Centre to drop your child’s medications off (and meet the nurses and Health Centre staff!). Your child’s medications will be packed in their luggage on the last morning of Camp.

What are some other health notes I should consider?

What if my child has had a fever prior to Camp?

To help keep our Camp community healthy, please contact our Muskoka Office if your child has had a fever at any time during the week preceding the start of their Camp Period.

We thank families for helping us keep influenza like illnesses from being brought into Camp.

Head to Toe Checks

Midway through your child’s stay at Camp, the counseling staff carry out a Head to Toe check – a quick look to make your child is healthy and clean! Any bumps, bruises, scratches or rashes are highlighted to the nurses.

If there are any concerns, the Camp nurses will contact you.

Important notes about contacting Camp this Summer

As you start getting ready to send your child to Summer Camp, we have included a few answers below to common questions about reaching us while your camper is at Wenonah.

Can I email my child at Camp?

Yes, you can! Simply send an email to campers@campwenonah.com and we’ll deliver it to your child.

Please put your child’s name (and their cabin or tabin name, if you know it) in the subject line, and we’ll print the email off and deliver it to your camper after dinner.

Please note that campers do not have access to the internet while they are at Camp, and won’t be able to respond to your email.

What about writing letters?

Camper mail is picked up each weekday, and delivered to campers after dinner.

If you’d like to write a letter to your camper, please address it to:

Camper Name / Period Attending / Cabin or Tabin
c/o Camp Wenonah
1324 Bird Lake Road, RR#3
Bracebridge, ON P1L 1X1

Campers are encouraged to write letters home each day during rest hour. We deliver mail to Bracebridge two times each week.

* Tipsend some self-addressed stamped envelopes to Camp with your child for when they want to write to family and friends!

Who can I contact if I have any questions or concerns?

Don’t forget, our Handbook is a great resource if you have any questions in the lead up to your child going to Camp.

You can also contact Caron Brick through email (caron@campwenonah.com) at our Burlington Office (Caron will be away for a couple of weeks in July, but the office will stay open and we’ll be checking any emails sent to her!)
