The camp for the kid who wants to do it all!

Camp Chai emphasizes both individual growth and community building with activities that excite every child. Campers have the opportunity to develop new skills while having FUN – from team sports to crafts to swimming. Our program fosters positive attitudes and identification with the important values of Kindness, Cooperation, and Responsibility. Surrounded by a diverse and caring staff, Camp Chai gives children the opportunity to belong to a group and to learn to respect each other, all in an atmosphere of adventure and excitement.
