CAMPER SPOTLIGHT: HALEY’S CARD HUNT!
Our camper Haley Maser created Card Hunt– a card making service that supports a great cause. Receiving a card in the mail makes your friends and family feel very special – especially at a time when you can’t see your loved ones. A portion of the net proceeds from Card Hunt will be donated to Ve’ahavta to help their COVID-19 homeless initiatives. Haley is uploading new cards every day: CLICK HEREto support her creative project with cards for all occasions. Way to go Haley for showing that #ManitouCares!

A TRIBUTE FROM OUR FRIENDS AT MARTINGROVE
Every year in addition to our regular summer season, we are fortunate enough to also share our camp in the Spring and Fall with school groups too. Martingrove Collegiate runs a leadership program at Manitou that is dedicated to helping their students reach their full potential by teaching them to take risks through fun games and activities which lets them grow as an individual. The program is organized by the older students who work together with teachers to develop the perfect activities for the campers to participate in. When Martingrove learned that Manitou was unable to open this year, the faculty and students created a video to express their gratitude and appreciation for their time at camp. We are blown away by the effort that was put into creating this tribute and are overwhelmed by the heartfelt words from their participants. We cannot wait to welcome them back in 2021.
Take the First Step towards the Greatest Summer Ever!
