Phone Calls with Your Son
During the summer, you will be able to schedule a phone call with your son. Campers are permitted one ten-minute phone call per session. There are no phone calls the first week of camp, as campers are settling in. Special arrangements can be made for birthdays and other important dates.
Campers are permitted one ten-minute phone call per session.
To access the system:
- Log in to myManitou
- Scroll to the “Your Camper” section and click “Phone Reservation System”
- Select a date in the left-most column, then select a time slot and the phone number which your camper should call. If your camper needs to call a number other than the ones listed, call the office to provide the number.
- Reservations must be made at least two days in advance (so campers may be notified of their pending call).
Communicating with Camp
The Manitou Office is open 7 days a week from 7:30am until 9:00pm.
Friendly and professional office staff are on hand to answer calls and handle emails. Campers and staff keep them busy, so if you have trouble getting through, please leave a message, or try again, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
Also, the office staff does not know the answer to every single question (though they are close), and will work diligently to get you an answer or get in touch with someone at camp who can help.
Should you want to speak with a director, assistant director, unit leader or the camper specialist, please contact them through the camp office. You can also send an email to and it will be forwarded to the appropriate person. Directors are happy to talk with parents but are only available in the office for a limited and regularly changing time each day. Their first priority is being out with the campers! Should there be an emergency, you will be contacted immediately. Otherwise, please allow 24 hours for a response.
