Exercise At Camp

We believe an active staff is a happy staff!

All facilities are open to counselors during their free time and in the evenings, including Alumni Hall with indoor basketball courts, and a fitness room with weights and circuit training equipment.  Staff often play pick-up basketball games in Alumni Hall or pick up soccer games in our Rec Hall and camp’s terrain makes an excellent place for a run.

We encourage staff to explore all of their talents and serve in several areas of camp. During your morning free period, you should try something new by joining in with campers in another instructional area; sit in on the yoga class, hit the golf driving range, take a swing in the baseball batting cage. Your fellow staff will appreciate having you there engaging with campers and your campers will remember the things you do together! 

Staff also participate by coaching and cheering on their teams in Manitou’s intra-camp College League and Color War and have the opportunity to play on staff teams. 

For those staff who want to exercise their creative muscles, there are opportunities to perform or help build and paint sets and make costumes for evening theater and stage performances. The band room is also a welcoming place for staff who are ready to rock.
