Manito-wish needs your help.

Camp is fortunate to have passionate supporters like you. Your commitment to helping change lives is steadfast. You understand the power Camp has to equip our youth to respond to the challenges of tomorrow.

You’ve seen the relationships that are built at Manito-wish, you know what a summer developing resiliency, confidence, and empathy can do for a camper’s self-esteem. It’s because of you that these campers had this to say about their time at Camp.

Camp Manito-wish is one of my favorite places! I always feel at home and accepted.

I love Camp! It’s such a great time for me to get away from technology and stress.
You also know that Camp is committed to ensuring that no one is turned away due to inability to pay for a Manito-wish experience. It is because of your unwavering support that Camp was able to return to programming in 2021.

I have had an incredible summer at Camp, and know the growth and memories I will take from here - wouldn’t be possible without your support. I can’t thank you enough.

I really wouldn’t be the person I am today if it weren’t for this Camp.
Thanks to you, we were able to provide these life-changing experiences for over 400 campers in 2021 and we expect to nearly double that number of campers in 2022!

We rely on your support to reach our goal of $510,000 to help our Campers:

Build resilience – so they can face life with courage and curiosity!
Unplug our campers from the staggering amount of time spent online.
Build connections – so when they need a helping hand, they have a network to reach out to!
Remove any financial barrier to attendance at Manito-wish.

Our staff are ready, our Board is committed, our campers are signing up, and the orange canoes are waiting!

All that is left is to have the continued support of our caring Manito-wish community.

Will you join us with a gift to the annual campaign today?

Thank you for your consideration.
