Join us for all NEW Family Camp!

Has your camper come home from Chanco raving about swimming and boating in the James, bonfires at night, the wonder of nature and Chanco’s magical woods, or the exhilaration of climbing a 32′ high rock wall and flying along a zip line?  We have often heard parents say, “When is adult camp?”.  Have you ever wished you could have a family vacation that is completely unplugged from all the distractions of today’s technology? Now we have the answer for you!  Family Camp is for ages 0-100 and offers campers of all ages and generations an opportunity to enjoy Camp Chanco together.  Family Camp is a wonderful chance to reunite with old camp friends and their families, to introduce a younger child to camp, or to have a family reunion with less expense than other locations and less hassle than hosting at your own home!  Busy moms, imagine someone else cooking for you for three days while you enjoy kayaking and canoeing, hiking, fishing, archery, crafts, sailing, climbing a 32 foot high rock wall or flying along a zip line if you dare!  In the evening, after you have been fed a delicious dinner (and someone else did the dishes!), relax around a bonfire under a starry sky with just the sound of the wind, crickets, and campfire songs!

Enjoy three nights at Chanco and a variety of activities for the low cost of $125 per camper, all meals included.  Stay in our chalets and enjoy community living in campsites and the sound of crickets lulling you to sleep.  For an additional $100 per person, stay in motel-style rooms with private bath.

This is an excellent opportunity to have true quality time with your family in Chanco’s magical woods on the banks of the James at an affordable price. Family camp is offered August 21-24, 2014.  Don’t miss it!  Click here for a flier with more information and a sample schedule of Family Camp.  Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy your family in God’s great outdoors at low expense with no hassle, no stress, and GIANT fun!
