Overnight Campers are now sleeping in their cabins as of 11:30pm, July 15.  Day Camp will be closed for Tuesday, July 16th. We are observing a large number of branches down as of midnight on Monday, July 15. We want to ensure that the property is safe before we resume our day camp programs.  Overnight camp will continue as normal. We will continue to provide updates as we have them.

Volunteer Highlight - June 2023

Garden Team

Many thanks to our Garden Team volunteers who show up weekly to keep our grounds looking beautiful.  3 years ago, we had 1 person and added a second in the fall of 2020.  Last year, we added a 3rd team member and now we have grown to 6.  With having a larger group, we are able to better maintain more areas and begin to improve areas that we have not been able to care for as well as we would like!  

The ideal would be to grow so that we had mini-teams taking care of specific areas to cover the entire property!

If you are interested in joining the Garden Team, please email Tamara McDonald at volunteer@manitoqua.org.

In addition, we love having groups assist the Garden Team with large scale clean up projects.  In addition to our work days, we have groups like Chicago Christian, who came out on May 22. About 50 students spent the morning as part of their Kingdom Building Day. Students helped us get ready for the summer season by clearing trails and cleaning up areas around the property!  Thank you to those students and the leadership of the school for selecting Camp Manitoqua for one of the destinations for this year's Kingdom Day!
