A free one-week camp for children who have lost a loved one — Run by Camp Manitou and its alumni
Every member of Manitou family is incredibly fortunate to be afforded such a unique and special summer experience. We believe its crucial to raise their awareness and appreciation of their own good fortune, reinforcing the value and importance of contributing to their communities.
While this spirit permeates virtually every facet of Camp Manitou, there is no better example than Experience Camps for Grieving Children, a free one week camp that provides bereavement support to children who have suffered a significant death loss. Experience Camps are funded in large part through the generosity of the Manitou family. 100% of the counselor staff for the program are volunteers, many who are current and former campers and staff. Many of our campers have actively raised funds and provided support for Experience Camps.
Camp activities and events such as Manitou Experience Day actively promote this program and reinforce the importance of giving back. The common cause of Experience Camps for Grieving Children has truly bonded our community and made Manitou a better place.
Experience Camps are funded in large part through the generosity of the Manitou family.
Camp Manitou supports many of the efforts our campers and counselors are involved with during the off-season. We are proud of Manitou Nation’s collective efforts to make the world a better place.
