WEEK 3: Takeovers at a New Time & Manitou Cares Continues!

Amidst these unprecedented times, being able to connect each day as a camp community is impactful for us and hopefully for you as well! Week 2 included great activities like fort building, slime making and Zumba too. We are excited to announce that we will be continuing our daily Instagram LIVE takeovers for Week 3 at a new time – 5:00 PM EST! We hope all of you can join us! Also, we have loved seeing the 100+ photos posted online from our #ManitouFirstPhoto challenge – it’s not too late to join in the fun!
Long time Director Jay Wengle, now Director of The Steam Project, has turned his workshop into a PPE production facility. Jay and his team are creating face shields and ear savers to help with the discomfort of wearing PPE for hours on end. They are continuing to innovate and create other products to benefit the healthcare professionals who are saving lives and protecting Canadians. We encourage you to support his incredible cause and show that Manitou Cares – CLICK HERE to learn more!

We also want to thank everyone who supported Bag and Bougie‘s fundraiser benefitting Trillium Health & SickKids Hospital – they successfully reached their goal and will be providing 20,000 masks to healthcare workers in need.
