  1. From where do you hire/recruit staff?

    Chikopi has a predominately foreign-based staff, as this is a fantastic way to promote diversity. Each staff member receives a thorough screening before arriving at Chikopi. Personal and work references are checked, interviews performed and background checks obtained. As a means to continue our century of traditions, many of our staff attended Chikopi as campers.

  2. What are your ratios?

    Chikopi continues to maintain a 1:3 ratio. Supervision is consistent ensuring safe choices at all times. We have certified lifeguards on duty during all aquatic activities. Certified First Aiders accompany every trip off camp, for example biking.

  3. What is your program like?

    Our program goal is not only to promote healthy lifestyle choices, but to gain real life learning benefits like leadership development, being part of a community, gaining self-esteem, learning how to make friends, and respecting others.

  4. What happens when it rains?

    Chikopi is fortunate to have several large activity buildings: barn, PJ game room, library, PlayHouse and MainHouse where we have a variety of activities to keep everyone happy on rainy days, such as volleyball, badminton, wrestling, fitness, yoga, tae-bo, board games, books, card games, ping pong, and fooseball. When it is too hot to be outdoors, these building offer excellent shade from the sun.

  5. Can my child be in the same cabin as their best friend?

    Our Camp policy is that as long as both families make the request and the boys are within 12 – 18 months in age, there is no problem. However, the older camper will have to age down to the younger cabin if necessary. So before making cabin requests, it is important for the parents to check with each other first. If the answer is yes, then both parents need to ask their children if they want to be in the same cabin. This is a very difficult choice for many parents who want their child to be with someone they know and, at the same time, learn to make new friends. Something helpful to remember is that we are a small camp, everyone knows each other within days, we socialize on the porch before every meal, and our table places are designed to maximize diversity.
