WE HAVE SEVERAL CAMP OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM: AWESOME, AMAZING AND OUTSTANDING.

Choose your Camp Session

We want everyone to be able to experience Summer Camp at Camp Manito-wish YMCA. So we offer several options designed to fit your camper’s age and your busy summer schedule. Activities are always appropriate to experience level, so campers aren’t overwhelmed or bored, and gain positive new character and leadership traits as they advance through the program. While camp dates, durations and experiences vary, they all have one thing in common: How much the campers enjoy it here.

*Fees

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. For information on payment options and financial aid, click here.
