Thank you for your interest into Camp Chikopi. Let us tell you a bit more about our camp and staff.
Camp Chikopi was founded in 1920. We are one of the oldest camps in the World. Bob Duenkel has been the Director for 35 years. Our blend of sports and camp experiences provides the setting for everyone, not just the competitive athlete, to improve overall fitness and build self-confidence. Campers are aged 7 – 17. Camp Chikopi stresses safety while providing a fun, exciting summer camp. With a 3-to-1 camper-to-staff ratio, constant supervision and individualized attention are guaranteed. Our staff and campers attend from the 4 corners of the earth, providing a very International experience. We have over 25 land and water sports. Our water sports range from swimming, canoeing and sailing to kayaking, windsurfing, and water polo. On land, we have sports ranging from team handball, lacrosse, archery, mountain biking, and basketball, to soccer, baseball, wrestling, tennis and golf. You do not have to be good in any of the sports to participate. We give each camper the leadership, guidance, and coaching to do his best. One of our many highlights is our canoe trip. We are in the canoe tripping region of Ontario and the scenery is spectacular. The trips are fun and challenging. We do something of everything each day. No day is repeated or routine. Special events include the swim races, running races, Barrie open water swim race, tubing in the rapids, swimming against the rapids is like swimming in your own flume, sailing regattas, talent show, traditional skit night, weekly get-togethers with our sister camp, Camp Ak-o-Mak. Day trip to Niagara Falls. Campfires, cookouts and other activities that truly epitomize the summer camp experience. Choosing the right summer camp is a careful and planned decision. In addition to the printed information we can provide, we are easily accessible for questions or concerns. Just give us a call or email. We also have numerous current and past camper-parents with whom we can put you in touch with to discuss Camp Chikopi. We look forward to hearing from you soon, and having you join us in the exciting Camp Chikopi experience this summer.
