Here for Summer. Home for Life.

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.

A Leader in Truly Inclusive Camps

We believe everyone benefits when everyone can play. For over 25 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 staff 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. To learn more about Keshet support, email Polly Cheeseman or call her at 630.566.9391.
