The mission of Camp Manitowa is to provide each camper with lifelong memories, and help campers increase and develop their confidence, independence and maturity. It is our mission to gain the trust of each and every camper and parent so that they return to camp and grow into kind and responsible young adults. We also intend to provide excellent customer service and transformational experiences for all those who participate in our retreats and to exceed expectations for an outstanding time in Southern Illinois.
Through participation in our multitude of outdoor activities, creating lasting friendships and personal growth, we hope to bring campers back to Camp Manitowa for generations. Our summer camp program provides campers with a forum to experience new challenges, enhance self-confidence, develop skills, and establish enduring friendships in the safe, beautiful surroundings of our mid-west location. Each camper at Camp Manitowa brings something special to the camp atmosphere. Our unique gathering of kids and caring, mature, professional staff create a diverse and supportive community that we plan to witness for generations.
