Chikopi is one of the few remaining camps who maintains a 3:1 camper-staff ratio, that ratio means continual assistance and immediate guidance. The majority of staff members attended Camp Chikopi as a camper. They are part of a tradition that molded and continues to mold the thousands of boys who treasure their Camp Chikopi experiences. Campers and counselors attend from all over the World. Counselors and staff have undergone a thorough safety background check; have current First Aid, CPR and Life Guarding certifications. Each one has a diversity of talents and he is handpicked from qualified university students from all over the world.
