About Us / Philosophy / Welcome

Greetings from Camp Manito-wish YMCA! Thank you for your interest! We’re happy you’ve taken the time to visit us here, and hope we’ll be able to welcome you soon, in person!

Here at Manito-wish, character and leadership development is at the core of our organization. In fact, it’s been that way since 1919! Our program areas provide excellent opportunities for youth to challenge themselves, become more confident, make lifelong friends, learn new skills — and have a lot of fun in the process!

This site has been designed to serve as an information hub, providing you with most everything there is to know about our philosophy, our programs, our staff, and the many great benefits we offer to those who join us for a program experience. So feel free to take this virtual tour of Camp Manito-wish. That said, we’d enjoy taking you on an actual tour when you’re in our neck of the Northwoods!

If you’d like to visit us, or if you have any questions about any aspect of our programs, please feel free to call (715.385.2312) or email us. We look forward to hearing from you!

Anne Derber

Executive Director
