A Look Back At 100 Years

Our Centennial summer was one for the record books! We’re honoring this milestone summer with a celebration video commemorating Chi’s 100-year history. Enjoy!

Make a Gift to Camp Chi

For nearly 100 years, campers have spent summers at Chi making new friends, building confidence, learning skills and developing values that stay with them long after camp ends. As we celebrate Camp Chi’s centennial year in 2021, let’s help ensure the vitality of Camp Chi and the strength of our community for another 100 years.
