Thanks For Joining Us!

Camp Chi welcomed back alumni to two alumni weekends in August 2021. Beginning with a Shabbat experience, alumni and their families created new memories while participating in many cherished camp activities, including boating at the cove, nature hikes, sleeping in cabins during a thunderstorm, canteen, and much more!

“The alumni weekend at Camp Chi was EXACTLY what we all needed. The weekend was a great escape from the realities of the past 18 months.”
– Dave Teplinsky, Alumnus

“Being back on campgrounds with my friends—some of whom I haven’t seen in 20-30 years—brought out true unbridled joy and happiness. All of the sudden it was 1991 again and we picked up right where we left off.”
– Karen Firsel, Alumnae

“For the first time we were a family of 5 at Camp Chi and we can’t wait come back to Alumni Weekend next summer!”
– Jonathan Graff, Alumnus
