Just hours after our full and second session campers departed last weekend, Fathers and Sons descended upon Camp Manitou for a weekend of activity, games, great food, and bonding.

Waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, fishing, swimming, water trampoline, Stand Up Paddleboarding, basketball, climbing tower, mountain biking, archery and riflery were amongst the most popular activities. The first night featured a big BBQ dinner, followed by a an evening at the Manitou Casino and a waterfront campfire.

Day two continued the theme of Father-Son activities and tasty meals. All dads and sons participated in two electives in the morning, the Day of Champions event after lunch, and two more electives before dinner. A Maine Lobster bake and a trip to Giffords for ice cream and mini golf capped the day.

The weather was fantastic throughtout. Those who managed to stay awake were treated to an incredible meteor shower display both Saturday and Sunday night – an amazing site.

We can’t wait to do it again next year!
