We celebrated 20 years of Wenonah with 20 events and programs (Wenonah 20/20) in 2016.
Close to 3,000 people took part in person or online in a vast array of events, programs and initiatives designed to celebrate our 20 years of life at Wenonah. 20 years. 20 years of an ever-expanding close-knit community. 20 years of the closest friendships we can imagine. 20 years of personal challenge, growth, adventure, and success.
There are so many moments. Moments that have defined us. Moments that have enriched our lives.
The Wenonah 20/20 events and initiatives each far exceeded our expectations. Four contests throughout the year that engaged hundreds of campers and staff. A photography contest: Wenonah Pics. A short story contest: Wenonah Writes. A song writing contest: Wenonah Sings. A new Wenonah Games logo and rebranding contest: Wenonah Designs.
