Camp Chihopi is surrounded by more than 200 acres of trees and mountains, and the camp has a private cove and beach on Cheat Lake. With these beautiful natural surroundings, campers have plenty of opportunities for fun outdoor activities, including:

  • Boating and tubing on Cheat Lake
  • Swimming
  • Horseback riding
  • Arts and crafts
  • Land sports
  • Music activities
  • Cookouts
  • The unforgettable "Rave" (a water trampoline with a slide!)
  • Special all-camp activity on Saturday afternoon

The highlight of Chihopi for all campers and staff is the annual party on Saturday night. The theme for the Chihopi 2018 party is “Dr. Seuss!” Bring your tall red and white striped hats and socks, get your blue wig for Thing 1 or Thing 2, or decide to be a 1 fish, 2 fish, red fish or blue fish! Campers and staff are invited to attend dressed for the theme. There will be plenty of Dr. Seuss accessories for all and additional events that evening to commemorate another great summer at Chihopi.

Rafting at Camp ChihopiThe Aquatics Center is another favorite of the Chihopi campers! This exciting water play area has a swimming pool with a shallow end that has water volleyball nets and a deep end with lap lanes and two water slides. There is also a separate diving pool with two diving boards and steps leading into the water for spectators to relax while scoring dives, jumps and cannonballs! There is also a shallow play pool with a bucket waterfall for non-swimmers or anyone who just wants to splash and relax.

From the water activities, the campers can easily walk to covered and open basketball courts, the Teen Center, shaded rest areas, archery, and the horse stable.
