Camp Manitowa Properties host coed overnight summer camps and year round retreats at its two locations in southern Illinois just a couple hours’ drive from St. Louis. We serve campers in 2nd-9th grade from all over the Midwest. During the school year, Camp Manitowa hosts retreats for schools, college student groups, religious groups, scout groups, musicians, men’s and women’s groups, families, weddings, and anyone else wanting to get away for a fun and meaningful camp experience. Camp Manitowa utilizes three different lakes and offers a wide variety of programs and activities for all our participants. We aim to create lasting friendships and personal growth by providing campers with a forum to experience new challenges, enhance self-confidence, develop skills and establish enduring friendships in safe, beautiful surroundings.
