After weeks of careful, thorough and thoughtful evaluation of the realities presented by COVID-19, we have made the heart-breaking decision to cancel all sessions of Camp Chi for this summer, including Try Chi and PNW. This historic decision did not come easily and was ultimately made to ensure the health and safety of our campers, staff and families. For the first time since 1921, the cabins will sit empty, the dining hall quiet and the lake still. The loss of camp is real and meaningful for all of us—those who have been looking forward to their first summer or last summer as a camper, first summer on staff, Habo, PNW, SIT summer and other Camp Chi milestones. We have all been longing for a summer filled with Camp Chi magic and are devastated to miss our 99th season. Still, every member of our Camp Chi family has a responsibility to serve as keeper of the flame and ensure that it always burns bright. We are working tirelessly to bring Camp Chi to life this summer in some way for everyone.
For the 6th year in a row, Camp Chi was named Best Overnight Camp in Better Magazine’s Best of Awards! #campchiproud

Imagine a summer surrounded by beauty. A canopy of white pine, oak, maple and ash trees offer shade on sunny days. Wooded trails and a ravine perfect for hiking surround open fields for games and fun. Blass Lake provides a cool breeze during the day and picturesque sunsets each night.
