I Come to Manitou Because…

Camp Manitou Reviews

Our camp family is happy to tell you what Camp Manitou is really like! Manitou campers and staff travel to Maine from across the country and around the world because they love our summer camp.

GREATEST SUMMER EXPERIENCE EVER!!! I was a camper and a counselor there! Love the ’tou and miss it to death. Any parent thinking of sending their child/children there, it will be THE BEST SUMMER EXPERIENCE OF THEIR LIVES!!!

The community service component is very special. And the friendships are so important now that Jordan is in his high school “pressure filled” years. He told me that he only feels like he can be himself with his camp friends. A special place, special kids, good values. THANK YOU FOR KEEPING IT REAL.

Thanks for the wonderful summer our son Eian had. The only phrases he uses to describe Manitou are “AWESOME” and “sooo much fun.”

Parent, Berkeley, CA

We appreciate all of the time you spent with Andrew and with us to help make his summer so enjoyable. From College League and Color War to all of his activities — he said it was so much fun.

Harley has had a wonderful summer, with so many choices of his favorite activities, he didn’t know which ones to pick first! I continue to tell my friends how happy we all are about camp.

Even though it’s 13 years since I last visited and 17 since my last full summer there’s barely a week that goes by that I’m not thinking about Camp Manitou.

I have always regretted not being a counselor after being a camper. Fortunately, Andrew is smarter than me, and I don’t think he’ll let anything interfere with the chance to be a junior counselor.

He told us it was his best summer up there. I think it helps to be with the same group of boys — some of whom he’s been with for 5 years. You guys did a great job. Thanks and keep up the good work!

“The best years of life were spent at Manitou.”

Camper, Mexico City, MX

As always we had a wonderful time and the boys would stay at camp 12 months of the year if they could… Manitou has become such an important part of their lives. You guys are definitely doing something right.
