How does Camp’s Mission statement inform our programming?

Camp’s mission statement was informed by the scripture reading of Luke 2:52. “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and Man.” This helped to establish the four corners of the Manito-wish square to create the foundation of our programming and form Camp’s current mission statement: To enrich the character and leadership development of each person who has a Manito-wish Experience by challenging them to grow in wisdom, in stature, in favor with God and one another.”

Growing in Wisdom

Our programming fosters the ability to think critically such that participants grow more comfortable with who they are in order to “Show up” authentically in life.

Growing in Stature

Our programming fosters improvement of body and physical skills which make for pride and confidence in being.

Growing in Favor with God

Our programming fosters growth in participant’s exploration of what God means to them.

Growing in favor with one another

Our programming develops participant’s ability to interact well with others.

We believe that a balance on all four sides through our values based programs is critical to the Manito-wish experience.
