About Camp Chicago

At Camp Chicago we seek to nurture a diverse Christian community, and we strive to give our campers the best week of their entire year. We want them to have fun and know what it means to laugh so hard you’re gasping for air. We want them to feel challenged and know they can dare to attempt new things. We want them to make lasting friendships. And we want them to know they are loved by God and called to a life of purpose and meaning. Watch this video to get a taste of the Camp Chicago experience.

Leader in Training Program

The Leader in Training (LIT) program at Camp Chicago seeks to develop faithful, Christian leaders through outdoor experience and training in leadership skills. The program is for young people age 16-17. LIT offers an outdoor experience focused on community building and problem solving. LIT engages young people in leadership development, and opportunities to apply what they’ve learned as leaders with the rest of camp as they shadow adult staff and interact with younger campers.

Camp Chicago’s Leaders in Training program (LIT) will run concurrent with sessions 1 and 2, June 26-July 1 and July 3 – July 8: register online for LIT.
