It’s hard to believe the summer has flown by so fast, and that Manitou 2018 has wrapped up. After World Games finished—congrats to Team Scotland!—we all packed up and got ready to head home. But before we all got on the busses, we had two amazing banquets to send off an amazing summer. First we […]

It’s another gorgeous Manitou day, and I have a feeling it’s going to be a fantastic final day of World Games 2018! Yesterday’s events made the competition even tighter, and I think it’s going to come down to one final push for both teams! Yesterday, we had an incredibly close Marathon where every camper and […]

It’s a gorgeous sunny day here at camp, and it’s an exciting one, too! We’re heading towards the finish line of camp, but there’s still so much happening!
