Transportation To Camp

It is important for a smooth start to camp that you arrive on the arrival date stated in your contract. A separate Staff Travel Form should be completed (it can also be accessed in your myManitou account).

You have a few options regarding transportation to camp:

a. Personal Car. You are welcome to drive to camp. If you do, please arrive the day before your contract start date or on your contract start date between the hours of 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM. There is a staff parking lot where you will park your vehicle for the summer.

b. Bus. Greyhound offers bus service throughout the country. If traveling by bus, you should arrive in Waterville, ME on or before your contract arrival date.
