Chipnee Trails camp took place from July 4 to 8 at Port Burwell, Ontario.It was another great year and Chipnee keeps growing!This summer, forty campers -from nine to fourteen years old-participated and enjoyed the many activities offered like: drama, crafts, swimming, beach volleyball and other sports.Also, the girls learned to cook simple recipes from professional chefs!
At Chipnee, the activities are designed to foster friendships and to build character.For example, virtue talks and mentoring are aimed to inspire and encourage campers in personal growth and service to others.For those who wish, Holy Mass and Rosary are available daily.Rebecca, who was our groundkeepers this year loved her experience and shared that “the most enriching part of camp is being surrounded by “regular” girls living in the 21st century, trying to be the best version of themselves with everyone”.
Chipnee provides an enriching environment that enables the girls to know themselves better and discover their talents.Guada, who came from Quebec City to be one of our counselors, shares the following: “Chipnee was a good experience to develop myself and to experience the help of the others; in that Camp, I was constantly challenged because I needed to take care of young girls who only spoke English!Thankfully, I found myself helped by the staff and the campers!”Many girls testify that Chipnee is where they have made genuine and long-lasting friendships: “it was easy to start an interesting conversation with staff as well as with campers because people were open to each other”, says Guada.Chipnee definitely strives to form young girls into strong
leaders-women who know how to love, how to serve, and how to have fun.
We are definitely looking forward to Chipnee Trails 2018, which will take place from July 3 to 7 at the same location.
