Camp Chickagami offers a number of programs through the summer season for young people, families and adults. Our traditional overnight youth camp sessions are residential programs featuring outdoor activities, crafts, games and more. Our program is rooted in the Episcopal Church and our campers join our Christian Formation team throughout the week in exploring their faith through age appropriate, engaging and self-led programs. Throughout the week, our campers build leadership skills, gain independence, and form lifelong friendships.

Our staff are thoroughly trained and screened and our camp and program are licensed by the State of Michigan as well as accredited by the American Camp Association.

Counselors-in-Training is a residential program focused on leadership development, skills building around child-care and development, and program planning. CITs shadow counselors in their cabins and learn from our star team of trainers. And they have fun too! The majority of our counseling staff are alumni of our CIT program.

*New for 2022* Training week and in-action week. When registering for your training week session you will have the option to select that you are interested in the in-action week. CIT's for this session will learn through practical application working around camp what it means to be a staff member at Camp Chickagami. The pre-requisite for the In-Action week is attendance in a previous CIT session (either this summer or in past seasons).

Our overnight camps are residential programs featuring outdoor activities, crafts, games, and more. Campers will join our Christian Formation team in exploring their faith through age appropriate, engaging, and self-led program. Throughout the week, our campers build leadership skills, gain independence, and form lifelong friendships.

ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE: Check in will be from 4pm-5pm on the start date of the session.
Check out will begin at the conclusion of our closing Eucharist that begins at 10am on the session end day.

HEALTH & SAFETY: Our highest priority is to share the love of God and God’s creation with the whole human family. This includes doing everything we can to keep you safe and healthy. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 48 hours of arrival is required for participation. A COVID-19 rapid test will be performed upon arrival and daily temperature checks will be taken. Our COVID-19 safety protocols and procedures are subject to change based on current health department and diocesan guidelines. If you have questions, please email directors@campchickagami.org.

TRANSPORTATION: To make summer camping as accessible as possible, we are coordinating transportation to and from Camp Chickagami. Logistics for the drop off will be communicated prior to the week at camp. A minimum of 5 campers is required to register for this option for it to be offered. Registration deadline for transportation is 14 days prior to camp session. Transportation will be $75 each way.

TIERED PRICING: Realizing that families have different abilities to pay, Camp Chickagami has instituted a voluntary three-tier fee program. You may choose the tier that is most suitable for your family. It is an honor system; you tell us what is the best fit for your family.

No matter what tier you choose, each camper will receive the same wonderful camp experience. This pricing model provides the opportunity for families to support the full cost of their child’s camp experience and to help share that experience with other campers.

SCHOLARSHIPS: Scholarship assistance is available for families that cannot afford our Tier 1 pricing. It is our policy that no child is turned away due to financial ability.
