Fireside Recap & Virtual Bracelets!

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Thursday night for the first our Virtual Summer Fireside Series with Peter Katz. His messages of following your dreams and pushing yourself outside your comfort zone are more important now than ever before. We were grateful that so many of us joined together as a Manitou community on what should have been the first night of our 2020 season, even if only virtually. We heard some cabins and groups of camp friends were even able to have socially distanced viewing parties – as Peter said last night, camp is about the people rather than the place. It was also so special for us to have Tanisha, Shrimal and Vinta Bhatt from our Manitou family read our fireside poem all the way from India.
For those of you who were unable to join us for the YouTube livestream, we have included a recording of the evening below – we encourage you all to watch Peter Katz’s moving performance.



We had such a great time last week at our virtual egg drop competition! It was amazing to watch everyone get so creative with limited items from outdoors, a little tape and some toilet paper!
