Our staff enjoys good relations with the staff at our sister camp across the lake. They’re a lot of fun and you’ll have ample opportunity to get to know them.
You know, at Manitou we treat our counselors like adults. We impose limited restrictions on how you spend your off-duty time, as long as your actions don’t affect the camp and your ability to effectively do your job.
Prospect: How can I keep in touch with friends and family while I’m at camp?

Prospect: Wow, working at Manitou sounds like a lot of fun! How do I sign up?
