Fall at Manito-wish
The Fall is upon us and we are in full swing of Fall programming here in the Northwoods. We just finished up Women’s Weekend with a wonderful group of women and are awaiting the folks that will be joining us for Father and Son weekend today.
Here is a quick re-cap of the fun from Women’s Weekend 2010.
Fall is off to a great start! Women’s Weekend started last Friday with Carmelita bars and gorgeous sunny weather to welcome us to Camp. We all got to stay together in the newly remodeled rooms in Schwartz Lodge and we gathered there on Friday night around the wood stove and shared “button flare” and sang camp songs with the staff. Saturday was a busy day with watercolors, yoga, paddling, death by chocolate dessert, a trip to town, dinner and the making of felted soap rocks. Woven all through the weekend were the knitters who inspired all of us to at least think a little more about knitting. Sunday morning came too quickly. We started with Beth in the quiet of the “rocking chair” room overlooking Boulder Lake for an insightful devotion and then to breakfast and paddling, knitting, and the high ropes course - kudos to all who braved the high ropes course – climbing and belaying. Beth, you are indeed “a Manito-wish kinda girl!” Looking forward to next year and more great, real conversations with my new friends – I’m bringing my knitting (probably dishcloths)! – shared by Jamee Stanley, participant and alumnus
Your time isn’t up to visit one of the most beautiful places for fall colors – Camp Manito-wish YMCA! Join us for Fall Family Weekend or make your own retreat away with family, friends and colleagues here at Manito-wish. Campfires, hikes, climbing wall, saunas and fabulous company can be great rejuvenation.
