Camp Kitchigami offers programs designed to develop self-esteem, life-long skills, acceptance of all people and an appreciation for the environment. Camp takes place at Chester Bowl Park and is surrounded by towering pines, a creek perfect for exploring and a large field for games and countless hiking trails with scenic views of Lake Superior and stunning waterfalls.

We believe every child should experience camp, regardless of family income. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we are able to offer scholarships to campers whose families may need a little extra help giving them that camp experience. Scholarships, or “Campships”, are awarded to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Please fill out the application completely. Funds are limited and we recommend applying as soon as possible. Click here to access the scholarship application.
YMCA Day Camp Kitchigami is also able to work with families who receive help in the form of St. Louis County Child Care Assistance. We can complete the necessary paperwork to get reimbursement from the county, but this process must be started (by contacting your case worker) before attending camp.
