Camp Manitowa is a retreat center and residential summer camp for 2nd – 9th graders located at Rend Lake, IL about 90 minutes from St. Louis, MO and Paducah, KY.

2nd to 9th grade campers gain independence, build self-esteem, and learn about cooperation and problem-solving, all while making new, lifelong friends at Camp Manitowa. We offer a small community for campers so that they feel like they... are part of a Manitowa family. By offering some structured free play we encourage kids to feel a sense of belonging, and our choice time leaves them feeling empowered to learn and grow. Campers entering 2nd-8th grade can choose from 1 or 2 week residential camp programs. 9th Graders will train at camp and then go on a weeklong Smoky Mountains Adventure. In 2014, in addtion to our weekly schedule, we are offering a week long specialty camp that focus primarily on water skiing.

In addition to traditional summer camps, we offer many retreats, such as Mother/Daughter, Just for Women and Dad & Son weekends.
