Since Camp Manito-wish YMCA was established in 1919, generations of youth have discovered friendship, fortitude, an abiding love of nature and their own strength of character. Their three major program areas and activities help broaden horizons, encourage collaboration and instill leadership qualities. Camp Manito-wish YMCA is more than a place; it’s a philosophy of life and leadership that’s fun to explore, easy to embrace, and invaluable for personal growth and development.
Their mission is to enrich the character and leadership development of each person who has a Manito-wish experience, by challenging them to grow in wisdom, in stature, in favor with God, and in favor with one another. Their vision is that the Manito-wish experience will develop confident, responsible, and enlightened leaders who will improve the world in which they live. Their commitment is that they will strive to create an inclusive environment by upholding human dignity, valuing diversity, and acknowledging unique experiences.
