For over 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.
The Outpost Village is an outdoor adventure specialty camp at Camp Chi. Whether forging trails, foraging for plants, or forming connections to the outdoors, the natural world is at the forefront of The Outpost Village.
First-time campers, in 2nd-6th grade, get a full summer of fun packed into 4 days and 3 nights. They’ll get to try camp favorite activities including ropes course, horseback riding, swimming, arts & crafts, and outdoor cooking.
For the 8th 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.
We believe everyone benefits when everyone can play. For over 20 years, we’ve been proud to partner with Keshet, to provide one-on-one support to ensure that campers with intellectual, social and physical disabilities can participate fully at Camp Chi.
Our Inclusion Coordinator, Jennifer, meets with families to understand the camper’s needs and make sure that they are met. This can include anything from how much support they need, if any modifications are required, and which session is best for the child.
