Senior Camper Program Option


Senior campers at Wenonah may choose to participate in our popular ROOTS program. The program was born out of an acknowledgment of the specific needs and interests of older campers who are not yet in the leadership programs at Wenonah.

The ROOTS program groups 15-year-old campers together as an entity with experienced Camp staff members.  ROOTS participants contribute to the decisions made by their leaders regarding program activity choices and take part in focused group experiences.
