Campers range from boys who just want to have fun playing sports and being outdoors to those who are gifted athletes. We have programs to fit everyone’s needs and fulfill their summer goals.

Chikopi is very international, we are extremely proud of our diversity and inclusiveness. We enjoy the many nationalities, languages and customs at Chikopi, it is an excellent opportunity for boys to be technology free and be immersed in a variety of cultures. Our wilderness location and rustic setting add to the extraordinary experience a summer at Chikopi provides.
