CEO leadership program


Applications for CEO 2019 are now closed. Interviews will be scheduled shortly and Applicants will be notified of acceptance by February 21, 2019.


Acceptance into this program is by application and interview. We highly recommend you register for our regular Summer Camp program to ensure you can enjoy your favourite weeks and activities. If you are accepted into CEO, all payments already deposited will be transferred to your CEO account. 

Our passion is to provide young people with the personal skills and leadership abilities they need to become the CEO of their own lives. Being part of the CEO Leadership Program will definitely teach you a lot, but this four-week program on Lake Rosseau is so much more than that - it will change your life.


About the program

stream selection

Our CEO applicants are highly specialized and have aspirations to grow their leadership capacity in areas they already thrive. We offer two streams, in addition to our traditional CEO program. Every CEO participant journeys through the same core curriculum and obtains a Grade 11 leadership credit upon graduation. Afternoon activities and key assignments are tailored to each stream. Industry professionals contribute their expertise through workshops and hands-on instruction.

The CEO Lodge

In 2018, we built a state-of-the-art accommodation, meeting room and facilitation space for YOU - our CEOs!

Each day, CEOs meet in the Leadership Studio, a building designed specifically to inspire and train young leaders. Part artist’s loft, part monastic retreat and part family cottage, this 4,000 square-foot, purpose-built space sits on the glistening shores of Lake Rosseau. Combining one-of-a-kind, hands-on learning with unparalleled outdoor amenities, the Leadership Studio offers a unique personal development experience for our CEOs.

Muskoka Woods believes that the CEO Leadership Program is only one aspect of the leadership journey. We are committed to providing an opportunity to continue learning after the summer ends. This includes evening activities throughout the year, ongoing connection with staff, a weekend retreat at Muskoka Woods and a service trip to New Orleans over March Break. 




CEO is life-changing in so many ways. CEO has helped me grow in confidence, leadership, and faith. I have gained so many new friendships that I know will last a lifetime. I love everything about the CEO program: the out trip, the friendships, and all the personal growth that takes place. CEO has been the single most influential experience in my life and I am so thankful I got to take part in it. - Erin, CEO Grad 2014
