WOW WOW WOW! The most exciting part of camp is here as our campers have arrived! Camp has now OFFICIALLY started!
There was no better feeling than seeing all of the smiling faces of our campers as they hopped off the bus and settled into camp. I saw a lot of returning faces, and I got to meet some new friends too! Wearing their wackiest costumes and holding up big signs, our head staff and counsellors greeted all of the kids so warmly.
Our campers are now all settling into camp. Soon we’ll all get to have our first meal of the summer together and I know Chef Will has something special in mind! This afternoon we’ll have our Activity Fair where the campers learn all about the HUGE selection of activities we have at Manitou. Once the fair is complete, they’ll get to decide which ones they want to try out for their first activity periods. It’s an exciting first day and I know it’s going to be the BEST SUMMER EVER!
Off to grab a yummy lunch and then help my camper friends unpack!

WOWEE! It’s been a long year, but we are finally back at Manitou and we can’t wait until all of our camper friends join us!
Our Unit Heads, Activity Heads, Specialists, Admin team and Directors have been hard at work putting the final touches on camp. The Kitchen Staff are cooking up the best meals we’ve ever had here, and our Maintenance Crew are making the camp look spick and span. We have staff that are new to camp and people who have worked here 20+ years – the perfect staff team!
And I am one excited moose because our Counsellor team arrived a few days ago! Our counsellors are the final cherry on top to an already great pre-camp, and I can already tell they are just as excited to be up here getting ready for all the amazing campers.
Well, I’m off to do my swim check so I can go canoeing and waterskiing with all my friends this summer!
