Challenge, Experience, Opportunity

At Muskoka Woods, 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.

CEOs learn about a wide variety of topics covered by the best leadership and personal development material available. We focus on coupling what the CEOs are learning in their session with practical experience. Participants will lead programs, instruct guests at their activities and take part in experiential team building initiatives. 

about CEO Leadership

ceo leadership
stream selection

Our CEO applicants are highly specialized and have aspirations to grow their leadership capacity in areas they already thrive. We offer four 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 will be tailored to each artistic and athletic stream, and differentiate these options from the original program. Industry professionals contribute their expertise to each stream through workshops and hands-on instruction.

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.

I started off this four-week journey with complete strangers, who quickly became people I laughed, cried and shared some of my best memories with. Over the course of the month, I learned that each of us were made uniquely, and given completely different skills, but that’s what makes us all so special. Through CEO, I was able to realize my potential, and learned how to utilize the gifts I was given.
