Our mission to develop character through adventure, inspired by tradition, started in 1935 and still guides us today. Whether you are just starting to look for a camp or you're returning for another summer, we're glad you're here!
Welcome to Camp Chippewa!
Campers grow physically, emotionally, and psychologically over the course of the summer. With our intentional program and guidance and supervision from a quality staff, our empathetic counselors provide your son with opportunities to tackle age-appropriate risks, reconnect with our natural surroundings, and build that internal map of resiliency, grit, and character. From teamwork to self-sufficiency, and from crazy fun to silent reflection, your son will live with his head up, away from a screen, and engage in eye-to-eye conversations.
We are privileged to provide time honored experiences and traditions like no other camp. Growth, challenge, self-confidence, and mastery will take place under the supervision of counselors who are at least 19 years old and have completed a year of college. We do not use junior counselors or CITs (counselors in training) to teach activities. It is becoming ever so clear that camps offer the necessary tools for the next generation to be successful in today’s fast paced and ever changing world. Camp Chippewa is an educational experience where the room is a wall of trees, a road of lakes and rivers, and light from the sun and stars.
Family Login (CampInTouch)
CampInTouch (CIT) is the parents’ portal to documents, forms, and information to prepare for a successful summer at camp. Download packing lists and paper forms, complete and submit online forms, make payments and update contact information. Each family has their own CIT Account and receives access to it once the online camper application has been submitted.
Prepare for Camp
Probably the biggest job for our camp parents is preparing their son to go to camp. From completing camp forms to double-checking packing lists to making travel arrangements, it is a busy time. But don’t worry; we’re right here with you every step of the way.

The experience he had this summer was everything I have ever dreamed that my son would have. As a camper, I thought about how if I had a son, one day, I would send him to Camp Chippewa. The best possible outcome I could imagine was when he saw us at the end of camp he would say, “Thank you for sending me to this wonderful place”. That is exactly what happened. Rarely do the outcomes that you plan for others in your mind materialize like that.
