Our Global Community
The Manitou culture fosters acceptance and creates an intangible sense of belonging for every child. This is a result of our value system which brings together a diverse community of campers and staff from around the world.
Diversity brings individuality: By fostering acceptance our Manitou family creates an intangible sense of belonging for every kind of child. Creating a strong and diverse community of campers and staff is at the heart of everything we do. We believe in a camp that brings people together from around the world that have diverse interests, and personalities, while fostering acceptance and tolerance for all types of people. The Manitou family attracts people from around the globe, from hundreds of different schools, cities, and countries. Existing campers welcome and reach out to each and every new camper, even before they step foot into the camp creating an inclusive tolerant community. Our individualized scheduling makes it easy for children to embrace new opportunities, and reinforces the value of not following peer group pressure within a culture that encourages children to be true to themselves.
