"The staff and facilities are perfect for your kids. Far enough to realize they are 'away from home' but not too far. The team there is excellent. My kids have always had a good time there!"

“My son gained a real sense of independence when attending the mini-camp at Cha-La-Kee. It was a perfect transition because he had never spent a night away from family.  He wanted to stay longer!”

Camp Dining

Meals at Camp Cha-La-Kee are always nutritious and well-balanced. We ask your cooperation in not sending or bringing candy or other food items - especially peanuts - to camp unless it is for medical reasons. We are a peanut-free camp.

Day Camp MEals

Day campers will be provided with two snacks and lunch each day they come to camp. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

Overnight Camp Meals

Overnight campers will be served three meals and snacks each day at camp. They also cook one meal outdoors with their cabin family!
