Video: Manito-wish the Best Camp in the Land

I am still grateful to my childhood friend Ted for introducing me to Camp Manito-wish YMCA. My first summer as a camper was 1985. I returned to camp for three more summers as a camper and then spent 11 years on staff. I met my wife while working at camp and many of my best friends to this day are my camp friends. My kids will soon be old enough to be campers at Camp Manito-wish. I can’t wait!

Did you go to camp?
