The Island Swim, a long-time Manitou tradition when JD and Dave were campers, will return this summer after an enthusiastic effort at last year’s Father-Son Weekend. Campers and staff will have the opportunity to swim a half mile to Birch Island and back, spotted by patrol boats and lifeguards on Sunday mornings. They will be met back on shore with the Ranger breakfast, and will receive their Island Swim badge of honor.
