    Teen campers come home from Camp Chi saying they had the summer of their lives! Here, they are understood and given a chance to be themselves with cool college counselors that know what being a teenager is all about.

    Research show that college-age counselors are wonderful role models for younger campers, teaching character and community, caring and sacrifice — all free of electronics.

    College admissions officers report that overnight campers succeed in college having had a successful experience away from home. Parents say that their children become more responsible, cleaning up after themselves and that they also try new foods. We say it’s true! The Camp Chi experience helps teen gain confidence and self esteem while having a good time with great friends. It’s all part of growing up at Camp Chi and it’s awesome!

    Summer your way!
    3, 4, & 8 week sessions

    Teenagers find just what they’re looking for in an overnight camp experience when they arrive at Camp Chi. There’s room to move, lots to choose from, and ways to make the experience all their own. We love teens and we “get it.” At Camp Chi residential summer camp in Lake Delton, Wisconsin, teens can stretch themselves, trying new activities and mastering new challenges. Boys and girls stay in separate, small cabin groups and the camper-to-counselor ratios of 3:1 promise plenty of personal attention.

    Your child can have a more personal camp experience at Camp Chi with a chance to pick and choose activities. There’s extra time and flexibility for doing what they love most, and a teen-only space to hang out with friends in a less structured atmosphere. We’ve got it all and your teen will love it!

    Plus, we offer opportunities for community outreach programs that give your teen some important leadership experience. No wonder JCC Camp Chi was voted #1 in the Midwest!
