ManEx/SomEx IS the Best Week of the Year

Manitou Experience is the OG of Experience Camps. It was there that this little ol' org was hatched, and it grew up quickly with a strong sense of tradition, camp values, and wacky activities. It is from here that the Experience Camps culture developed and the foundation on which everything was built. Somerset Experience came about just last year to add the girls program to our magical mixture. The combination of ManEx and SomEx is our largest camp and also our largest wait list. We still have room to grow and need your help to open more spots for grieving kids to attend. For 6 weeks, we will embrace the spirit of competition as the camper, volunteers, and friends of each camp compete against their extended camp family to see who will emerge as the winner in the Battle of the Camps.
