Support Camp Chickagami

No matter how you are connected to Camp Chickagami, we invite you to strengthen your ties to this transformative place by making the experience of camp and retreat possible for someone else. Your gift is an investment in the deep rooted history and promising future of Camp Chickagami. Since the early 1920's many faithful people have supported camp in many ways: through prayer, through giving of their time and talents, and through donations.

Only with the help of many can we continue to give back.

That's why we count on support of all kinds to help.

Donate Today

A recurring gift in any amount creates more stability for the organization, as it helps us plan.

If you have having trouble processing your donation, please contact

If you prefer to give by check, mail your donation to Camp Chickagami, c/o The Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan, 124 N. Fayette Street, Saginaw, MI 48602.
