Manitou’s Young Leaders


  1. Manitou’s Leadership program begins with boys who are entering their High Senior summer (finishing 9th grade) and continues to the CIT (Counselor in Training) year. The following year, boys earn the opportunity to become Junior Counselor staff members. This summer we will have 15 Junior Counselors on staff. Do you want to learn more about last year’s Leadership program?
  2. Are you an international staff member? If so make certain to confirm your visa appointment as soon as possible.
