Dedicating This New Space

First Flagpole at Camp Chi

Thank you to everyone who attended our new tradition, First Flagpole, on Sun., May 22, 2022 in-person or virtually. We had a wonderful day dedicating upgrades to the Camp Chi campus, including the Lecker Family Outpost Village, and raising the flags for the first time to kick off Summer 2022.

What Is The Outpost Village?

Seek Adventure. Connect Outdoors.

At a special two-week session, campers will learn about the outdoors, participate in various outdoor adventure and activities such as orienteering, trail building, tent pitching, fire building, natural arts, and canoeing. Campers will live in yurts and cook outdoors all while experiencing the magic of Camp Chi. Plus, campers will experience wilderness trips to enable them to apply their new outdoor adventure skills!
