Camp Alice Chester Resident Camp

Choose from two, three and five night sessions for girls in grades 2 through 12. Sessions run from June 15 through August 13. For all dates and details, download the 2014 Camp Alice Chester book.

Camp Opportunities
Girls have the opportunity to learn more about themselves and others as they enhance their confidence in new things. Every session includes the opportunity to swim each day, play games, sing bunches of camp songs, create crafts, eat s'mores around the campfire, and work towards a badge or Journey. With positive role models, new friends, and exciting activities, camp experiences will create memories to last a lifetime. 
 
Staying at Camp 
Camp Alice Chester is located in East Troy, WI. Most sessions involve a field trip outside of camp for a few hours or a few days. The sandy beach allows for lots of sand castles and relaxation. Girls sleep in 4-person cabins, airy 6- person platform tents or small troop houses.  Most cabins and tents do not have electricity so girls get tucked in by flashlight. A modern showerhouse is available to all girls. The whole camp eats together in our air-conditioned dining hall with a lake view.
 
Lifelong friends are made at camp. Girls spend their days and nights with other campers who are in the same event and similar age. They will have 2-3 counselors who accompany them to activities during the day and sleep nearby at night. Most of the day is spent as a small group of   6-24 campers. All of our meals and some evening campfires include the whole camp. Each session campers have an opportunity to swim each day, create crafts, eat s’mores, play games, and sing bunches of camp songs.
