Campfires

In-Person Events

A Camp Chi campfire is one memory you’ll never forget. The flicker of the fire, the taste of s’mores, the smell of smoke on your clothes – it’s all a part of the Camp Chi experience. Relive that memory and join us for one more campfire, with alumni from your decade. Feel free to bring your family!

Campfires are in-person, socially distant events in the Chicagoland area, with limited capacity, if you’re planning to attend, please register all attendees.

Who Knows One: Camp Chi Edition

Virtual Event

Join us for a fun online game of Jewish geography! Who Knows One tests who knows the right people to get in touch with the mysterious “Chosen One”. Chi alumni are the contestants who will play against each other to see who can best use their network to find “The Chosen One”. Expert ringers are on standby to help the contestants make additional connections during the game. Winners of each round will win a prize!

The community (that’s YOU!) can make an impact on the game through donations that go towards unlocking specific clues, lines of communication, adding in or kicking out people from the game and much more.

All Camp Chi alumni are welcome to join this virtual event on Facebook Live hosted by Camp Chi.

Thurs., April 22, 2021
