At Camp Manito-wish YMCA, every day provides new opportunities for high energy activity, challenge, relaxation and friendships. When they aren’t out on Trail , our campers’ days are structured to encourage them to explore their individual interests, get to know their cabin mates, and participate in larger, group activities. The activities are designed to teach our character values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Explore our daily calendar to learn more!

All campers start their day with a hearty breakfast designed to fuel high-energy activities, followed by a creative, counselor-led presentation that presents the activities and options campers can choose from that day.
During "detail," everyone in the community takes ownership and responsibility for the facility and grounds. Each cabin group is responsible for the upkeep of a different area each day. They also must clean and maintain their cabin.
Campers have the freedom to choose two of the activities from eleven program areas. These activities are taught and supervised by our program directors.
At free time, the waterfront is open and campers can chose to take a swim, play pick up games such as basketball or roof-ball around camp, relax or take personal time to read or write letters.
In the afternoon, each cabin group participates in two cabin activity periods. These activities — assigned by the staff and based upon the requests of each cabin group — provide time for the cabin group to learn and play together.
Evening activities might include a large group game of Capture the Flag, an all-camp campfire, special entertainment or the Camp Show!
“[Our child] was sad to be home and told us, "No offense, but I didn't miss you at all. Camp was too much fun.”
