Camp Manitou

Manitouwabing Lake, Canada

Photography, Story Telling, Creative Communication

Camp Manitou is a children’s summer camp located on Lake Manitouwabing and an incredible network of waterways, lakes and islands. We had the absolute pleasure of spending the summer as the resident photographer, capturing the magic, engaging and playing with the kids and helping to teach photography as one of the camp activities to the budding young photographers. It was a truly profound experience, immersed in a beautiful setting, mostly disconnected from technological distractions and remembering what it is to be a child again.

We were also responsible for creating comprehensive video presentations throughout the camp and took this responsibility very seriously. With hundreds of kids and just one of us, we had to make sure to get as many kids in there as we could and show them reflected back with the same wonderment and excitement they projected every day. To show themselves how amazing they are. This has been one of our favourite photographic experiences to date, more so because of the connections and interactions but the photos turned out beautiful too!
