Appearance and Staff Shirts

We require all staff to maintain a neat and professional appearance throughout the summer. Counselors must be willing to cover any visible tattoos.  Appropriate footwear for your activity area is required at all times.

Manitou requires all staff to wear Staff Shirts from wake-up through evening activity each day (plus camp activities out of camp). Manitou branded shirts should not be shredded, ripped, or altered. 

In May, we will email you an order form where you can indicate preferences for the type/size of staff shirts you prefer.

We provide all new staff with a full set of seven staff shirts, including a long sleeve shirt.

Manitou’s laundry staff will also wash all Staff Shirts each week with the rest of your cabins laundry.

Your personal laundry needs to be done on your own (we have free washers, dryers, and detergent on camp grounds for staff use).

Veteran staff can purchase extra shirts as needed.
