Chinqueka is a camp that emphasizes individual attention to campers by our experienced, caring staff and camp administration. Life at Chinqueka is informal and friendly. Our close-knit community allows us to focus on developing Chinqueka’s core values in our campers – sisterhood, empowerment, kindness & growth. Our primary focus is maintaining a safe and respectful environment that encourages both personal growth and creates an unforgettable summer experience.
We aim to raise each camper’s confidence and allow her to feel comfortable trying new things, and a great way of doing this is through the 30+ activities we offer. We specialize in each program area that we offer, so our girls have the opportunity to learn new skills while pushing their comfort zones.
Incredible Role Models
We search the globe in order to find smart, kind and passionate women to be excellent role models for our girls. Our caring and motivated team are an outstanding example of Chinquekas values. Our role models include education majors and sports coaches who are dedicated to teaching and leading our girls.
A Summer Tradition
Since 1955, girls around the world have made Chinqueka their summer tradition. We have 60+ summers of history, spirit and tradition while offering a modern program. All campers leave their mark on this special place and feel a part of our summer tradition.
