Save these dates for winter Camp Chanco fun!

Last year, Chanco held two brand new events during the winter that were such a hit we are bringing them back this year! Save the Dates for both our December Lock-In (December 2-3, 2016) and Winter Camp weekend (January 13-15). Both of these events offer our campers an opportunity to either try Chanco for a shorter period of time before a one-week or two-week session next summer or an opportunity to reunite with camp friends and come back to what many call their “second home” without waiting a whole year! DSC_0615

DECEMBER LOCK-IN: Parents, looking for some extra free time without teenagers underfoot to get your Christmas shopping done? Kids, interested in some cool games, social activities, delicious snacks and Chanco fun in the winter? Then our December Lock-In is for you! The December Lock-In will be held December 2-3, 2016 and registration will open soon for this fun winter event and will be found at Questions? Contact Diocesan Youth Missioner Ashley Scruggs at or 757-213-3393.

Campers will sleep “lock in style” in sleeping bags in conference center meeting rooms and some of your favorite summer staff will be returning to help lead this fantastic camp weekend.  Winter Camp is the perfect opportunity to reunite with your old camp friends, enjoy the gorgeous outdoors of Chanco, and/or introduce a younger camper to Chanco before a one-week or two-week session next summer!

Come join us for one or both of these second annual youth events! Questions?  Contact Executive Director Gareth Kalfas at or 888-7CHANCO (888-724-2626).  We can’t wait to see you back or for the first time this winter!
