Our Youth Camp Sessions are intended to help young people come to more fully know and experience God’s love for them and to help them live more fully into their Baptismal vows. We also strive to build the body of Christ amidst the young people of our diocese within our beautiful natural environment.
A Day at Camp Chick…
Campers participate in Christian Formation each morning. Themes vary by session but typically campers explore through crafts, games, music, dramatics, team-building exercises and small group discussions. Each day also brings plenty of opportunities to participate in a variety of recreational activities including swimming, boating, sports, hiking, fishing, exploring nature, working on even more crafts and joining in all camp evening activities. Each day’s events are sandwiched between youth-friendly worship experiences.
About our Camp Staff…
Our Cabin Counselors and Program Staffers are college age and older adults who have experience working with young people. Over half of our staff grew up coming to Camp Chick as campers! Our staff-to-camper-ratio is one to five. All Staffers undergo a thorough background check prior to their service with children. Staff members also participate in pre-camp orientation which includes basic first aid training, emergency procedure drills, behavior management, and information related to the development characteristics and needs of the children in their care.
Camp Chickagami is committed to the health and safety of all campers and staff. Our full-time, on site Health Officer provides first aid and health care according to a licensed physician’s standing orders. Certified Lifeguards supervise all swimming and boating activities. An experienced Cook serves balanced, great tasting meals.
Scholarships & Funding
It is Camp Chickagami’s policy that no camper will be turned away from camp due to limited financial resources. Scholarship assistance is available. Please check out this page for more scholarship information.
