Guides

Fees include staff, all activities, instruction, equipment use, wilderness trip, meals, lodging, and facilities. We are happy to offer our families two fee options. You may choose the actual fee or the adjusted fee.

The actual fees reflect the true cost needed to deliver a Manito-wish experience. Because of generous contributions to our Annual Fund Drive and Endowment Funds, we are able to offer families an adjusted fee.

Please choose the fee which is most suitable for your family. The fee you choose in no way influences the experience your camper will receive. Payment plans and Camperships (financial assistance) are available. Please contact us for more information.

Testimonials

What a great treat to see 12 advanced trips come in and learn about the trail experiences of each of them. They start at camp, go off on a well planned and executed long wilderness experience, and return to camp on the same day, 12 different groups. No one else does this!
