“Camp has not changed.”
When alumni come to visit Camp Chippewa after years or even decades away, their reaction to returning to Camp is invariably the same. “Camp has not changed.” They do not mean the physical structures or the activities. They mean that the essence of Camp Chippewa has remained true. Camp connects people through generations and across the world, and it does this so well because for nearly 90 years, its philosophy remains the bedrock of Camp. Camp exists for one thing: the campers. Our Mission, Vision, Values, and Goals anchor us to providing the best experience possible for the boys and men who spend their summers at Cass Lake.
Our mission is to develop character, through adventure, inspired by tradition.
