Perfect Mix of Free Time and Awesome Activities
Campers are also given free time during the day to hang out with friends playing pool or ping pong in the lodge, sitting in a group with other campers and counselors talking and making friends. Many like to spend free time on the docks, swimming, or going out on a sail boat. Of course they can always jump into an activity that is going and join a game of ultimate Frisbee, soccer or basketball game.

Just Ask Our Campers
Here is a quick testimonial from one of our former campers. She left it on our website and she does a great job summing up the Chop Point experience.
“This past summer at Chop Point was the highlight of the summer and most definitely one of the best summers of my life. The campers, the counselor, the environment, they all make up Chop Point and make it so very special. It was extremely hard to say good bye, but i know I’ll be back next summer. The last night, the camp fire and it all just hit me. This is the last night at Chop Point. I had spent 3 amazing weeks at this place and now I had to step back and return to reality. All the words said that night, touched my heart so very much. God is a large part of my life since Chop Point. I’m so glad you taught me that God created so many beautiful places for us, that he didn’t have to but he did. I have learned to appreciate the small things in life and help others around me. I know I’m a better, more confident me because of Chop Point. This place, this wonderful place gave me some of the best things in the world. My experience at Chop Point was never expected to be like this. I love it here. Chop Point isn’t just a summer camp, it’s my home.” – Daniela
