Camp Manitou Lodge – coming soon!
As part of Camp Manitou’s expansion plan, a brand new 10,000-square-foot lodge is now under construction which will double the dining capacity of the old lodge and provide abundance space for overnight campers and rainy-day activities. The lodge is anticipated to be open for the 2020 summer season!
Camp Manitou Gym
The gym is a multi-purpose facility with 3,000 square feet of open floor space which can be divided into three areas by curtains for up to 100 people. The gym is an ideal space for indoor games/activities, rainy day programming, classes/meetings and a variety of functions (such as receptions, family reunions, and birthday parties).
Surrounding the gym on three sides are large windows which allow for natural light and summer breezes to enter. A covered veranda encourages outdoor activities. Also outside, just in front of the building is a sports pad with basketball hoops.
Heated Outdoor Pool
Come cool off from the summer heat in our newly heated pool! Camp Manitou has an outdoor pool that is open during the summer months, subject to weather conditions. The pool is available according to Manitoba health regulations and Camp Manitou policies. A lifeguard must be present at all times.
Forest & Field
Come take in the natural beauty of Camp Manitou and its 28-acre oasis. Just five minutes outside of Winnipeg, you would never know you were that close to the city when you are walking our trails and taking in the natural beauty. The grass field that hosts field games and activities is conveniently located just behind the lodge.
Our play structure is fully accessible and conveniently located right beside the pool and green space for free time play.
We offer 12 stand alone cabins as a place to stay! Cabin #2 sleeps 10 people, while all other cabins sleep 12.
Cabin #1 and #3-12 are equipped with five bunk-beds (sleeps 10 people) and two single beds, along with a table and bench style seating. Cabin #2 has four bunk-beds (sleeps eight) and two single beds. Each cabin includes a separate changing room area and storage bins for your bags.
Camp Manitou’s official NHL-sized rink is located in front of the lodge and attached to the Skate Shack. Funded in part by the Industry Growth Fund, an initiative of the NHL and NHL Players’ Association, the rink greatly enhances winter programming with the ability to be operational for six months of the year. With a roof to keep away snow, and an ice plant to ensure quality ice from fall to spring, the rink is one of the top amenities at Camp Manitou. In the summer months the rink provides shaded and sheltered space that can be used as an activity area. The rink serves numerous True North non-profit children’s programs, as well as Camp Manitou programs. It is currently not available for day pass or individual rental use.
The Skate Shack houses two dressing rooms that have direct access to the rink, making it the perfect place to warm up when taking a skating break. With the cabins in vicinity, the Skate Shack also provides shower and washroom facilities for overnight cabin guests.
