CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Manitou offers a variety of summer programs for youth from ages 8 � 18. Our full-week Main Camp sessions provide the majority of our registrations. Amongst the five (5) weeks per summer devoted to this age group of 8-12 year olds, campers learn skills, gain new interests, practice healthy habits, enjoy the outdoors, and make new friends!

Time is spent each day doing �hobbies,� which are specialized activities chosen by each camper on the first day of camp; spending time on the waterfront swimming, sailing, kayaking, paddleboating, or fishing; playing large group games and participating in all-camp activities; and spending time with old and new friends in cabin groups.

Mini Camp is a special camp for ages 8-10 that takes place for five (5) days instead of a full week in order to ease younger campers into the summer camp lifestyle more fluidly.

Teen Week is Camp Manitou�s other high-attendance camp session. Designed specifically for youth entering grades 8-10 after the summer, Teen Weeks combine all the tradition and fun of Main Camp with exciting opportunities for leadership and adventure through specialized activities and events.

Camp Manitou boasts a successful adventure tripping program which sends group of six to twelve campers ages 13 to 18 out with two experienced guides all across the state to participate in various trip sessions. From canoeing to sailing to kayaking to backpacking and more, these trips not only provide for valuable lessons in outdoor skills but also teach important lessons of leadership, teamwork, self-reliance, and confidence.

Additionally, Camp Manitou offers a variety of specialty camps aimed at campers with specific interests. For 2013, Camp Manitou is offering a Water Ski Camp, Manitou Music Week, USA Football FUNdamentals camp, and an in-house sailing camp on lower Long Lake, along with Teen Leadership weeks for both boys and girls.
