"Home away from home!"
At Chipinaw, campers and counselors live in wooden cabins, sleeping in cozy wooden beds and bunk beds. Each cabin has electricity and hot water and features recently refurbished modern bathrooms and showers. At Chipinaw, our youngest campers live in our specially designed cabins that combine four bunks under one roof to enhance cooperative learning and peer relationships.
Our main buildings include dining halls, theaters, canteens, a stable, arts and crafts facility, air-conditioned computer labs, indoor gymnasiums, a weight room/fitness studio, dance studios, and a state of the art Health Center. There are also specifically designed areas for mountain biking and boarding and our fitness and nature programs.
Other facilities include tennis courts, both indoor and outdoor basketball courts, roller hockey rinks, a skate park, soccer, softball and baseball fields, all of which have lights for night time activity. Away from sports, Chipinaw has a challenge ropes course with a three-sided 34-foot climbing wall and zip line and a spectacular circus program with a professional flying trapeze.
Our waterfronts consist of a heated and lighted swimming pool as well as a 96-acre private lake with sailboats, row boats, canoes, kayaks, peddle boats, surf bikes, diving boards and towers, and a floating trampoline and inflatable iceberg! We also have three separate docks where our motor boats pick up those who want to ski, wakeboard, or tube.
Although most of our counselors live in the cabins with our campers, we do have some private accommodations for our older staff, and our staff lounge is complete with internet access, telephones, and satellite TV.
We offer our campers everything one would expect from a great summer camp, and MORE!
