No Packages

Packages often create an unhealthy competition among campers.

Also, the anticipation of receiving package can shift the emphasis at camp from fun to awaiting the arrival of the mail.

Our policy, detailed below, extends to all parents, relatives and friends. In order to ensure fairness, the following will be strictly enforced.

What is allowed?

  • Regular first class letter envelopes
  • Magazines, books and photographs that fit in any 9 x 12 flat envelope are fine to send occasionally. These flat envelopes will be opened by our office staff and distributed through our regular mail system.
  • If your son arrives at camp and is missing equipment, our office staff will contact you and an exception will be made to the package policy.
  • A College League item (shirt, hat, shorts, etc). We announce the College Teams early on in the camp season, and will post your son’s team in your myManitou account. Please email the camp office if you are having a College League item sent from an outside company.

  • Anything that does not meet the above criteria
  • Anything that contains food or non-reading material

As with everything we do, the camp aims to keep the value and safety of your son’s experience at Manitou on the highest level.
