Build character, create adventure, support the magic of summer!

The opportunities for children today are remarkable. Few, however, can provide the kind of profound experience available at a sleep-away camp. At a time when we hope to give our kids the skills they need to succeed, we sometimes miss the forest for the trees. Camp Chippewa is a place to grow stronger physically and emotionally, to find challenge and discover a new confidence, develop character with new adventures and have a blast with new friends.

Adventure. Character. Tradition.  These are the tenets of Camp Chippewa.  A wilderness setting since 1935, Camp Chippewa provides boys ages 8-17 the opportunity to learn, grow, and achieve mastery in skills and activities that are life-long endeavors.  Boys advance in activities (archery, sailing, riflery, fencing, tennis, soccer, canoeing, waterskiing, climbing and swimming) at their own pace and level of interest.  Counselors and staff are mentors, big brothers, coaches, and teachers, inspiring boys to feel pride in who they are and what they do.  Learning, achieving, and giving back to the community are goals for all.  Chippewa’s uniquely low enrollment of 75 boys per session makes camp feel more like a family.  Staff get to know each camper on a personal level.  By being in a technology-free wilderness surrounding, boys discover and develop skills through an intentional program.  With a guiding hand from a well-trained and talented staff, boys forge character to manage adversity in their lives.

Camp Chippewa strives to promote individual achievement and skill development by providing a unique outdoor educational experience.  By focusing on life-long sports and activities, we have carefully developed a program that promotes emotional and physical growth, develops confidence and encourages friendships with fellow campers and counselors from around the globe. It is an exciting and fun program created by each camper within a well-developed camp structure.  We believe that boyhood is a special time, and Camp Chippewa provides a rare opportunity to slow the pace of our daily routine, to escape the wired world to discover the wider world and to find true adventure in a wilderness not yet lost.

We invite you to join us in supporting the incredible opportunities that Camp Chippewa presents.  Explore this page and feel free to visit our website and Facebook page.
