Wenonah Campership Fund
The Wenonah Campership Fund helps families provide their children with a Summer Camp experience that will last a lifetime. The Fund is supported solely through private contributions given generously by Camp families and friends.
At Camp Wenonah, we believe strongly that the Summer Camp experience leaves a lasting impact on every child. Our goal is for each child to benefit from higher self-esteem, greater self-confidence, newly developed friendships, and a healthier lifestyle.
DONATING TO THE WENONAH CAMPERSHIP FUND
Contributions of any amount to the Wenonah Campership Fund are greatly appreciated by the children and families who benefit from them. All donations go directly towards providing children with a Summer Camp experience. Camp Wenonah covers all related administrative costs.

Amici Camping Charity
Established in 1966 by summer camp alumni, Amici is a registered charity that sends boys and girls from low-income families to overnight summer camps in Ontario. Since its inception, Amici has provided children with over 1500 unforgettable summer experiences.
Working with 30 summer camp partners, Amici’s funding helps to provide quality residential camp experiences to children, ages 7-17.
Amici’s model is unique in that it will fund each child year after year until they are too old to be a camper or until their families no longer require financial assistance. Through multi-year support, Amici aims to set each child on a stable path to a brighter future.
Kids in Camp
The Mission of Kids In Camp is to make the wonder of a camp experience available to kids from all backgrounds. It’s an opportunity for them to gain positive memories that will last a lifetime. It’s a chance to learn about themselves and others in a camper-focused program.
The Camp experience is both worthwhile and valuable: it teaches cooperation, acceptance of others, sportsmanship, tolerance and an environmental ethic in a way that is impossible to duplicate elsewhere. Each year Kids In Camp will sponsor children to attend one of over 300 camps throughout Ontario, all accredited by the Ontario Camps Association.
Kids In Camp’s vision is that no child will be prevented from attending camp due to financial considerations. They are committed to helping as many children as possible participate in this unique opportunity.
Scott Young Foundation
Each year, Camp Wenonah welcomes 10-15 campers during Period Five from The Scott Young Foundation, which was established to remember the remarkable life of a man whose example touched a great many.
Born in 1964, Scott was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at age 4 when the life expectancy was age 12. He died in 2003 at the age of 39, well beyond what was expected. Many medical advances prolonged his life, and in 1992, Scott had a double lung transplant that gave him several more years of good health. He continually beat the odds.
Scott loved children. He managed to maintain a child-like appreciation for the little things in life. This allowed him to connect with children at a wondrous and deep level. It’s so fitting that a major piece of his legacy is making a difference in the life experience of children through the gift of an experience at Camp Wenonah.
