In addition to their primary cabin and instructional responsibilities, counselors serve as role models, mentors, and coaches to inter-camp teams. They will participate in activities such as exhibition games, competitions against counselors from other camps, talent shows, the camp band, and the end-of-the-year musical.
Counselors accompany their campers to out-of-camp events, including camping trips, whitewater rafting, ball games and other activities. The camp covers the cost of these excursions.

A Manitou counselor is an energetic person who is eager to teach and live with children. We ask our staff to make a full-time commitment to maintain a safe and healthy atmosphere in their cabin where their campers feel as comfortable as they do in their home.
