For nearly 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.
As we round the corner towards Camp Chi’s centennial year in 2021, let’s strike a MATCH to help ensure the vitality of JCC Chicago and the strength of our Jewish community for another 100 years.
For the 6th year in a row, Camp Chi was named Best Overnight Camp in Better Magazine’s Best of Awards! #campchiproud
Spend anywhere from 4 days to 8 weeks at camp or head out on an adventure to the Pacific Northwest.
As kids, tweens and teens mature and change, so do Chi’s programs with options for 3rd-11th grades.
Located just 3 hours from Chicago near the Wisconsin Dells.

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.
