Welcome to Camp Manitou, a summer camp for boys ages 7 to 16, located in the beautiful Belgrade Lakes region of Maine. Founded in 1947, Manitou is one of the nation’s foremost camps. We’re sure that after you learn about our outstanding summer camp staff, facilities, programs and activities, you’ll understand why so many boys make Manitou their summer home.

How We Accommodate International Campers

Campers from all over the globe have been a part of the Manitou family since we were founded in 1947. Last summer, we had campers and staff members from 26 states and 13 countries.

Before arriving at camp, our international families are in constant communication with one of our directors. We help our families complete the enrollment process, set up transportation arrangements, mail you a camp catalog and packing list, provide resources for 1st time sleepaway camp families and send you some cool Manitou gear! We are always available to answer any questions you may have about camp. When your son arrives in the US, we will have a dedicated member of our staff at the airport waiting in excitement to bring him to Camp.

We contact all of our international families upon your son's arrival at camp and will be in constant communication over the summer. We provide daily newsletters, blogs and photos on our website so you can see what your son is up to and we schedule phone calls every two weeks. Emails and letters can be sent to your son daily. We are looking forward to seeing your son at Manitou this summer!
