Mission

Camp Manitowa will provide each camper with lifelong memories, and will send campers home with more confidence, independence and maturity. It is our mission to gain the trust of each and every camper, so that they send their kids to Camp Manitowa. We also intend to support all those who choose either of our retreat centers and to exceed their expectations for an outstanding experience in southern Illinois.

Vision

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.
