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 through new adventures and have a blast with new friends.

At Camp Chippewa, boys capture the wonder of boyhood through the many daily adventures afforded by our wilderness environment. The unique enrollment of just 75 boys ensures individual attention for each boy and personal, hands-on interaction among campers and counselors from around the globe (3:1 ratio). Camp activities promote individual achievement and skill development, while instilling a joy of life-long sports and 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 that fosters expertise, confidence and mastery.

Camp Chippewa's mission is to develop Character through Adventure inspired by Tradition. Established in 1935 by Otto and Helen Endres, Chippewa is owned and operated by Camp Chippewa Foundation, and directed by the founder's grandson, Mike Endres and his wife, Mary. Located in the Chippewa National Forest near Bemidji, Minnesota, Camp Chippewa welcomes boys ages 7-17 for 8-week, 4-week and 2-week sessions.

Boyhood is a special time and Camp Chippewa provides a rare opportunity to slow the pace of our daily routine, to escape the digital world, to discover the wider world, and to find true adventure around the glow of friendship and a campfire.
