A limited number of scholarships are available through the Camp Chippewa Scholarship Fund. It is our hope that once a boy is selected for the scholarship, he will return to camp for at least two years as a scholarship camper. We are proud of our partnerships with select schools in Minneapolis and Milwaukee in helping to identify scholarship candidates. Please contact the camp directors for more information or to request a Scholarship Application.
Chippewa Leadership Training (CLT Session) is an opportunity by invitation to rising 12th graders who have several years of Chippewas experience under their belt. Campers who join the CLT program, attend camp both sessions, taking a 21-day canoe trip during the first session and staying in camp the second session for leadership training, service projects, and attending activities as a camper for the last time. It’s a big commitment, but also an opportunity to take a trip of a lifetime and spend the summer before senior year in a place that offers transformational experiences. Contact the camp director for more information.
