Discover Camp Chippewa

The opportunities for children today are remarkable. Few, however, can provide the kind of profound experience available at a sleep-away camp. At a time when we hope to give our kids the skills they need to succeed, we sometimes miss the forest for the trees. At Camp Chippewa, we invite you to walk this forest where our campers find a summer home. A place to grow stronger physically and emotionally, to find challenge and discover a new confidence, develop character with new adventures and have a blast with new friends.

Why Camp Chippewa?

At Camp Chippewa in Cass Lake, Minnesota, boys capture the wonder of boyhood through the many daily adventures afforded by our wilderness environment. A limited enrollment of just 75 boys ensures individual attention for each boy, as well as personal, hands-on interaction among campers and counselors.

Camp activities promote individual achievement and skill development, while instilling a joy of life-long activities and reverence for our wilderness surroundings. The many returning counselors and staff demonstrate a loyalty to the program and provide a continuity in the activities which fosters expertise and mastery.

We are fully accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA), having met or exceeded the rigorous standards set forth by the ACA.

Thank you for making such a positive difference in our son’s life. The life skills he learned at camp have been so valuable at his new school. He is super excited for next summer.
