Director's Message

principal

Bob Duenkel, Director
Masters in teaching. Former US open water swim coach. Director of the International Swimming Hall of Fame.

Dear Families,

Thank you for your interest in Camp Chikopi, let us tell you a little more about Chikopi and after you have finished reading if you would like further information please check out our web site or request our ebrochure, we will be very happy to answer your questions or put you in contact with some of our alumni.

Chikopi began in 1920, we are a small traditional sports camp, with the honour of being the World’s first “All Sports Summer Camp”. We offer boys a variety of traditional sports with a wilderness camp experience. Our 400 acres sit on a beautiful waterfront location in the heart of the Almaguin Highlands, Ontraio, Canada.  Making Chikopi ideal for both land and water sports, in addition to the large variety of traditional sports we also specialize in soccer, swimming and canoe tripping.

At Chikopi, we live in, age assigned, rustic wood cabins creating a close community of friendship and adventure. Our campers discover the rewards of being in a spectacular natural setting without technology’s distractions. They thrive on the Chikopi traditions of teamwork and leadership.

Our highly trained staff of counselors and instructors provide the crucial 3:1 ratio that ensures individual attention for every boy. Many of our Staff have developed through our camper ranks to counselor and staff, they were chosen for their skills and personality, to guide and encourage the next generation.

Chikopi can accommodate 70 campers, aged 7-17. In 2014, we represented over 15 nations including USA and Canada.

Sessions are 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7 weeks long. Transport is available from Toronto on scheduled session dates. We take canoe trips, in our trademark green and white cedar strip canoes, on a cruise through the 3,000 square miles of Algonquin Provincial Park and other lakes and rivers in the region.

Some of our camp activities include, Soccer, Tennis, Volleyball, Softball, Basketball, Cricket, Golf, Archery, Lacrosse, Wrestling, Mountain Biking, Swimming, Kayaking, and Sailing. We have weekly get togethers with our sister camp. Combined, Colette and I have 49 years as Directors of Chikopi.

Chikopi is Accredited by the Ontario Camping Association.

Bob and Colette Duenkel

Great Experience

I talked with Javier yesterday and he is having a wonderful time as every other year. I want to tell you we love Javier to go to Chikopi every summer, because it's been a great experience for him in all aspects. Thank your for being part of that. We really appreciate everything you do for the kids to have a good time and learn a lot of each other at the camp. Best wishes, Teresa


Chikopi Family

Colette and Bob, Just wanted to say thank you for another great year at Chikopi. Alex came home with lots of stories of his experiences and, as usual, he has grown while away. When we send Alex to Chikopi, I feel like he is going to see family. It has been the greatest experience for him. Thank you for another year of memories. Connie and Cheryl


Great Summer

Hi, Deb here, Zach's Mom. Just wanted to THANK YOU for another great summer. We have heard so many funny stories about Zach's summer. We were thankful as well that he was NOT hanging out here in Fairfield, Connecticut with the rest of his friends who were very bored and seemed to get in a bit of trouble. Zach has made the CREW team at his new Prep school and is really loving it. He really is turning into a fine young man.


Wonderful camp ...

Dear Bob and Colette, We want to thank you for all your attentions to our son, he has told all the things hid did in his term and we know how important are this experiences for his education. He’s motivated to join Chikopi next year and it tell’s everything, you have a wonderfull camp that we enjoyed too. Thank you again and hope to see you next year. Our best regards. Tatiana and Victor

Big Brother

Chikopi is truly a wonderful place. Bob and Colette become parents for all boys for the summer. ... Colette inspects their cabins every morning to make sure that the beds are made and clutters are removed from the floor (too bad this is only for the summer!). All counselors are hand-picked by Bob and Colette. They are caring, responsible big brothers, and make sure that the campers are safe and having fun at all times. Campers come from many different countries: Canada, U.S., Mexico, France, Venezuela, England, Germany, etc. On the day they arrive, they immediately become Chikopi brothers and start caring for each other. All campers look up to Bob and the counselors as role models -- it is so cute to see young campers flocking around big guys.... Mio
