Take Two allows campers to test the waters by registering for the first two weeks of the summer and live in cabins with four-week campers. Once they’ve experienced the fun and adventure of Camp Chi, they can decide to extend for the remaining two weeks of Session 1 for an additional fee. The transition is simple because Take Two campers are already living with and have the same schedule as four-week campers. Spaces are very limited. Only available to new, first-time campers.
