While everyone has a different reason for going to summer camp, some camps are specialized, and the campers have special reasons for going there. Choosing a summer sports camp in Ontario is about having a passion for sports. For some, it might be about improving their skills. For others, it might be about developing athleticism. And for others, it could be about improving fitness. At Camp Chikopi, we have programs to fit everyone’s reasons.  Our focus is on excellence. Chikopi is an all-boys summer camp, renowned around the world, and certainly an excellent example of a quality summer sports camp in Ontario.

Getting better at your favourite sport

Located in the natural beauty surrounding Parry Sound, Camp Chikopi is fundamentally a boys’ sports camp. It’s very much focused on the outdoors and the local fresh water lake makes for a superb swimming program. The competitive swimming program at Chikopi is focused on the individual, while emphasizing the fundamentals – drills - starts - turns.
