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 […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…we have some amazing and talented campers! Last night we were treated to the Senior/C.I.T. theatre show, which was Les Miserables, and I was blown away.
