You will receive a call within 5 days of camp to let you know how your child is doing if it is the first year your child is at Manitou.

When and what to write your child, understanding homesickness and providing us with information before camp will help us to provide the best possible summer for your child.

We have a Community Week, Friday Night Fireside and our “Walk of Hope” during the summer where we join together to celebrate what we have at camp and to recognize how fortunate we are to spend our time at Manitou. Manitoucares provides us an opportunity to continue this throughout the year as we make a difference in the lives of others at monthly events.
