A Look Back on Summer 2021
With Fall officially here, another summer at Chingachgook has flown by and come to an end. We wanted to take a moment to thank all of those who were part of the 108th summer here at Camp and for being part of our Chingachgook family! We feel so lucky to have had the chance to work with over 1,300 campers in our Overnight Camp, CIT, and ADK 46er programs!
After a year of being closed, it was amazing to welcome back our campers and staff. And while things were a bit different than years past, this summer was still full of incredible moments and memories. The magic we feel at Camp comes from you - the campers, families, staff, and volunteers who add so much passion and excitement to Camp that it creates a welcoming and one-of-a-kind community. Thank you for being part of our camp family and we can't wait to see you back next year!
While we know you are busy with getting back to school, we wanted to give you some information on registration for 2022, since it's never too soon to start daydreaming of sunny days by the lake! We are taking some time to reflect on this past summer and are still working on rebuilding our program offerings after covid closed our doors in 2020. We plan to open registration for summer 2022 in October and we plan to give our 2021 campers the first choice of sessions before opening up registration to all. Dates and rates will be available soon on our website.
Any camper who will be 16 years old by June 26, 2022 will be eligible for the Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program. CIT registration is the same as the camper registration process and will also open in October. This leadership development program is a great opportunity for campers to learn more about what it's like to work at Camp but also to gain volunteer hours and professional development that they can apply to school and jobs at home as well. The past few years we have filled our July CIT spots the first day of registration so if you are interested in this program we suggest signing up early! If you are interested in the August CIT program but may have conflicts with school or sports at the end of August, please let us know as we can look at conflicts on a case-by-case basis.
