As part of the True North Youth Foundation’s ongoing commitment to provide a Superior Patron Experience at Camp Manitou we have constructed a new lodge to better serve our campers, school groups and rental groups. The Travis Price Centre (TPC) opened on June 15, 2020 and played host to hundreds of summer campers. The next major construction project that is underway is the addition of a man-made lake and bike trails on the north side of the property.


Construction FAQ

What new activities will be added to the programming mix as part of this new project? 

We will be adding canoeing and kayaking on the new lake, a swimming area and extensive bike trails. In addition, a BMX pump track and skills area will also be constructed on the site.

Will this major construction project negatively affect the camp experience for our group in any way? 

Fortunately this project is taking place on land that we do not currently use for any of our camp activities and therefore we do not anticipate that the construction of the new adventure activities will have any negative impact on the experience for any of our campers or rental groups.

Will the new adventure activities be ready for use by our school group in May and June 2021? If so, when can we book a date to have our students experience those activities?

The completion date for this project has not been finalized but based on progress throughout the winter months we now anticipate that the project will not be completed until the fall of 2021. Please check our website on a regular basis as details will be updated consistently as construction progresses. School groups can make bookings at any time for visits to Camp Manitou in the spring or fall of 2021.
