Manito-wish Staff & General Public

The one constant in nature is that nature is never constant. Shifting terrain, changing weather and chance encounters with wildlife can turn hazardous without the proper skills, knowledge and preparation. Camp Manito-wish YMCA Outdoor Leadership School partners with some of the most respected national leaders in wilderness safety to provide a comprehensive array of training opportunities, from leadership to first aid to water safety. Be ready for anything, with exceptional training and certification.

For Camp Manito-wish YMCA staff members, this program provides an opportunity for additional training that enhances other camp staff training periods. Manito-wish staff members receive a reduced fee for all courses. These courses are open to the general public as well.
