Who We Are
Camp Winnebagoe is a private, co-educational camp for children. The camp population consists of 300 boys and girls between the ages of 7-16. We have purposely kept the number of campers small so that we ourselves may know individual children well, so that our staff are familiar with all of the campers – big and small, old and new – and finally, so that children of all age groups come to know one another.
We are constantly on the alert to see that each cabin group is functioning well and that each camper is adjusting to camp life. This helps to ensure that every child among us is enjoying a productive, happy time away from home.
100% Camp Winnebagoe
Every cabin group has 2 counsellors in charge with the exception of our younger campers who are mentored by 3 or 4 counsellors. Our counsellors do not double up as activity staff during the day, but rather participate with the campers throughout the daily schedule. Senior counsellors and heads of activity areas must be at least 19 years of age and are university students. Junior and Assistant counsellors are 17 and 18 and are typically selected from our CIT program.
With a nurturing group of staff that understand through their own experiences the joys of camping, your children are in the care of positive, caring, and capable leaders.
