Activities don’t end with the spectacular Maine sunsets.

Nightly programs include talent shows, dance socials with nearby girls camps, movies, games, plays, campfires, out-of-camp trips, performances by local entertainers, and special events. Activities are scheduled each and every night.

Camp Plays

Four plays are staged in competition and an end-of-the-year blockbuster, The Manitony Awards, is presented by a cast of campers, counselors and directors in Manitou’s unrivaled 8,000-square-foot theater complex, which encompasses costume and set design shops, dressing rooms, and a large projection screen for movies. There is a full-time theater director, a set designer and a costumer.

Older Campers

Even after the nighttime program, older campers can use the lighted basketball and baseball facilities, including the main court in Alumni Hall and Peckham Park. There is also a weight and fitness room, mini movie theater, and game center for ping pong and more.
