In summer 2023 we have three options for Family Camp sessions. Join us for one of our traditional Family Camps, Days at the Lake or our second annual Naucratius Fishing Family Camp.
Days at the Lake
June 16-19, 2023
Enjoy 3 nights, 4 days at camp with lodging, breakfast and dinner provided. Camp staff will take care of most of the food, hospitality, and much of the rest is up to you to enjoy. Read a book by the lake, go on a hike to Lake Huron, or sleep in a hammock on the lakeshore. Some opportunities for group prayer, campfires and swim time will be provided but your schedule is up to you.
This session is open to all - individuals and family units are all invited to register.
Session 1: June 19-22, 2023
Session 2: June 26-29, 2023
Join us this June! Pack your bags and bring the family to Camp Chickagami for a stay on Lake Esau. This session is for campers of all ages and all Camp Chick experience levels. Reconnect with God and nature, introduce the youngsters (and oldsters) to Camp Chick, take a dip in the lake, sing songs at the campfire, take a family hike, and relax.
We’ll provide some family friendly programming and formation for both youth and adults and we’ll even provide some child-free time for the adults! It’s a great way to spend a few of your summer days!
NAUCRATIUS FAMILY CAMP
June 23-25, 2023
Naucratius Family Camp is a spin off of Camp Chickagami's traditional Family Camp program partnering with The Order of Naucratius - West Michigan. We will pray together, play together and hopefully fish a whole lot!
This our second Naucratius Family Camp! We’ll have some programming (always optional) but much of the time will be free for you to spend making memories with the people you love. Activities will include: fishing, hiking, sitting around the campfire, playing games and more!
What is the Order of Naucratius?
The Order of Naucratius believes that hunting and fishing are sacred activities, and with that premise, our goal is to help connect local hunters and anglers who have harvested in abundance with people who are hungry. The primary way we accomplish this goal is through encouraging local anglers and hunters to share portions of their harvests with those who are hungry through local programs and churches who are engaged in feeding people. More information about the Order of Naucratius can be found on their website.
PROGRAMMING/SUPERVISION: It is expected that families will be primarily responsible for their children.
PACKING LIST: A suggested packing list can be found here.
FOOD: For Family Camps, all meals are provided beginning with dinner on the first day of the session.
For Days at the Lake, only breakfast and dinner will be provided by camp beginning with dinner on the first day of the session - lunch will be on your own. You will have access to a fridge and kitchen space, if needed.
LODGING: For Family Camps, lodging is assigned by Camp Chickagami and families will be lodged only with their family they registered with. Campers or tents are welcome for all sessions - please communicate that at registration. If you would like to share your lodging unit with another family please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
For Days at the Lake, lodging for this session will be in a communal setting assigned by Camp Chickagami. If you have requests for cabin-mates please let us know during the registration process.
