For over 100 years Chikopi continues the tradition of teamwork: building sportsmanship, character, leadership, friendship, and self-confidence through sports. Chikopi is a modest, family orientated summer camp, the #1 choice for boys who enjoy the outdoors and a wide variety of sports.
Each summer, we welcome campers from across Canada, multiple U.S. states and over a dozen international countries, third and fourth generations of campers return each year.
Chikopi is Tech-Free, our focus is sports, the outdoors, and time-honoured games of; capture the flag, speedball, timed baseball, rocker ball, scavenger hunt, survival, and many more. Our program is fully sports orientated. A mix of assigned and u-pick activities provides a well-rounded experience. Being a small camp ensures everyone knows your name within days. We have small classes ensuring one-on-one instruction. Specialized classes, at no extra charge, are offered in swimming, soccer, tennis, and sailing. Each summer we host weekly special competitive events. Meals are served family style, helping boys master the art of socializing. The boys live in 12-14 person cabins where they gain the unique abilities of communicating, responsibility, respect for others, and boundaries. Counselors reside in the cabins as chaperones. Chikopi is non-denominational, cabins take turns each week reflecting and explaining their understanding of the Golden Rule.
At Chikopi, we’re all about immersing campers in a world of sports, thrilling adventures, and exciting challenges. From kayaking to triathlons, swimming races, and exhilarating running competitions, there’s never a dull moment. Our program is rich with special events, providing your son with the perfect opportunities to learn new skills and, most importantly, to build the confidence he needs to not only achieve but surpass his goals. Chikopi is where lifelong friendships are forged, and where boys discover the incredible potential within themselves.
Chikopi counselors are hand-picked by the Directors, they are chosen for their leadership and role-model qualities. All counselors and staff are interviewed and undergo a thorough background check. Almost every counselor was a Chikopi camper, thus ensuring continuity of over 100 years of traditions. Counselors and staff participate in weeks of training before the campers arrive.
