Ron Levin Camp Chi Summers of Tomorrow Fund

The Summers of Tomorrow Fund was established in honor of Director Ron Levin’s 36th summer at Camp Chi. After 37 amazing years, Ron Levin threw his final pine cone into the fire.

Initial proceeds provided scholarship funds for nearly 100 campers, realized a 100-camper fire circle and new aerial adventure course, and established Chi’s first reserve fund. Over 70 trees were planted as a part of this effort to ensure that summers of tomorrow are as bright and beautiful as those that came before. Please continue to help support Chi’s effort to continue to provide the highest quality in camping.
