Join us for this amazing adventure camp!

Have you ever wanted to experience daily games of “Capture the Flag” on Manitou Island or cook your breakfast over a campfire or watch the sun set on the other side of the lake?

How about camping with a small group or an epic kayaking adventure on Lake Cobbosseecontee?

How about having a schedule created with input from you, the camper?

If any or all of this excites you, come and join Deans Antonio and Sara for a weeklong camp on Manitou Island! Just a short paddle across from the Pilgrim Lodge waterfront, we set up tents on the island to experience God’s gift of nature and have our own adventures launching off the island.

We look forward to seeing you in the summer of 2024!


When considering whether Middler Island Camps is the right fit for your child, please consider the following features of the program:

  1. This program is intentionally small by design. A small community of campers will be spending the week together in a tight-knit community.
  2. Campers spend most of the week outdoors and participate in tending the camp together (carrying firewood, cooking meals, cleaning up after meals, etc.).
  3. There are opportunities to go on boat trips away from the island and usually a visit to the mainland camp once or twice during the week with the final night (Friday) being back in a mainland cabin for easier pick up on the last day.
  4. There is a lot of physical activity from outings to games on the island in addition to cozy time around the campfire. Campers should expect to be physically active, walking around the island, trails at camp, and paddling boats.
  5. On the island, there is no electricity or running water or showers. There is an outhouse and campers clean up in the lake where there are some spaces to swim in proximity to the island. The campfire and flashlights are the only light source after dark. Campers sleep in tents or screened-in lean-tos.
  6. Camp staff delivers potable water from the mainland along with restocking food needs 1-2 times / day. Camper mail is also delivered on a daily basis.
  7. The program is designed for the campers to have input into some of the activities which means that the day-to-day routine of camp can have more flexibility than our camps on the mainland. Activities and schedules can fluctuate by the day.
