A Manitou camper should be prepared for the most exciting summer of his life.

Through the leadership of our highly-trained staff, Camp offers creative and athletic activities that boys love. With the guidance of their counselors, campers plan their own schedules, choosing from the wide variety of programs to develop new skills and hone existing abilities.

Look beyond a typical summer at camp

Summers at Manitou are legendary. Kids go home with stories that they are proud of for years to come. One of the benefits of an all-boys environment is the healthy competition that spurs boys to try a little harder and push themselves. It’s good clean fun that results in real growth and character development.

Is Manitou a sports camp? Arts camp? A travel camp? Camp Manitou’s activities and instruction make the summer experience so much more than a specialty camp can offer. A basketball camp or tennis camp might offer more time on the court, or a theater camp might offer more time on stage, but is that all your son wants to do this summer? Manitou’s balanced program gives boys time to excel in activities and time for trying new things, hanging out with friends, and participating in special events.
