For 100 years, Camp Chi has transformed children’s summers. We unplug campers from their daily lives and connect them to life-changing moments.
And, long after the last s’more has been made, the best of Camp Chi stays with you. Friendships last forever, summer memories become lifelong stories and values learned become part of who you are.

Our Inclusion Coordinator, Jennifer, meets with families to understand the camper’s needs and make sure that they are met.
