Health & Safety at Manitou
Camp Manitou is accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) and spends weeks each year developing and training staff. Physical and emotional safety is the #1 priority at camp and all rules, policies, and procedures have been established with this commitment in mind.
The ACA collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based, standards in camp operation. To maintain its accreditation, Manitou undergoes an annual review of its operations – from staff qualifications and training to emergency management (up to 300 standards in all). Camps and the ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.
All food served in the dining hall is peanut-free and prepared by trained chefs experienced in accommodating various kings of food allergies.
