Camp Manito-wish YMCA

About Camp Manito-wish YMCA

Camp Manito-wish provides a combination of traditional camp activities (archery, horsemanship, swimming, etc.) and wilderness tripping for youth entering 5th through 10th grade.

Our programming puts emphasis on the wilderness experience, called trail, and we use it as a resource to facilitate growth and leadership development in partnership with our in-camp experience. Along with Summer Camp, Manito-wish also features a robust wilderness expeditions program called Outpost, as well as a Leadership Program that facilitates teambuilding activities for a multitude of camp and community groups.

We have full and part summer opportunities for staff members who are 18 years and older. If you have any questions about these positions or any other positions not mentioned, and their specific descriptions, requirements, and/or duties, check out our website, or contact us!
