About Camp Kooch-i-ching
Camp Kooch-i-ching is a residential summer camp for boys ages 8 to 18. During a typical four-week session, campers live in cabins with their peers, participate in a wide variety of classes, games and community service activities, and go on extended canoe and backpacking trips—all designed to build strong character and lifelong leadership skills. Our mission statement is to inspire the growth of young men through fun and challenging wilderness adventures that promote self-discovery, teamwork and service to others.
