At Camp Chikopi, we have something for everyone:
Camp Chikopi truly stands apart from the rest. Originally founded in 1920, Camp Chikopi is an adventure-filled sports camp for boys aged 7-17. We’re located in Parry Sound District of Ontario, where our campers enjoy a fabulous summer in the outdoors, in the gorgeous landscape of the Almaguin Highlands region and Ahmic Lake. At summer’s end, our boys return with life-changing memories and lifelong friendships.
Camp Chikopi has always stressed the importance of physical exercise from a young age. We’re unique in that we help our boys to discover their passion - and we do it by focusing on a variety of sports. We offer a wide range of competitive and non-competitive sports at all skill levels.
Sports participation and involvement impacts boys in a positive way for the rest of their lives. Whether it’s an individual sport, or a team sport, the benefits go far beyond the physical fitness. Our boys shape their self-esteem, build their confidence, and are motivated to achieve goals.
Which sport will your boy choose?
The Camp Chikopi experience allows boys to achieve personal growth, while developing team-building skills. At Chikopi, all of our sports include ample time for scrimmage (game time) where the boys can compete energetically and with sportsmanship. After all, sports isn’t always about skills and drills – it’s also about fun and enjoyment. And at Camp Chikopi, it’s all under one roof.
The soccer program at Chikopi focuses on individual development in a team environment. We emphasize fundamental skills; training drills; and game tactics. Coaching and conditioning is personalized, and every soccer player improves their game throughout the summer. Our boys are instructed in every aspect of the game: passing, receiving, shooting, dribbling, and juggling.
As an all boys sports camp, the canoeing program at Chikopi is renowned. We have 44 cedar-strip canoes and our program encompasses pleasure canoeing, racing, and tripping. Our trainers focus on the fundamentals: canoe equipment; paddling and strokes; and water safety. With consistent instruction and regular practice, physical and mental conditioning is enhanced at the same time.
The Swim-Bike-Run triathlon program reflects our philosophy of sports excellence. Here, the aspect of personal development is key, emphasizing the fundamentals of swimming, cycling, and running. With intensive training, our triathletes are able to consistently improve physical and mental conditioning. We also attend triathlon races outside of the camp – one of only a few camps to do this in Ontario!
Under the supervision of our skilled trainers, Chikopi boys learn basketball skills suited to age and skill level (whether beginner or advanced). Our basketball program challenges campers to improve their skills while still having a fun time. All of the fundamentals are incorporated into the program: dribbling; shooting; passing; footwork; pivoting (with scrimmages/tournaments).
From American football, to Canadian football, to Australian-rules football, to traditional Rugby, Camp Chikopi offers something for everyone. And while the fundamentals of each are similar, they also have some key differences. Our training staff focus on skills development and game techniques – and the emphasis is always on mastering the skills and improving the game.
Camp Chikopi’s baseball program is about developing fundamental skills and mechanics, and improving personal athleticism and esteem. With expert instruction, our boys will hone their skills throughout the summer, covering every aspect of the game. We also focus on game play scenarios; batting and hitting drills; pitching and catching mechanics; and proper base running.
As a well established all boys’ sports camp, Chikopi provides a one-of-a-kind summer experience that brings boys back year after year. It’s an unforgettable summer, where campers develop their self-esteem and build personal responsibility – all the while engaging in the sports that they’re passionate about.
