During the summer, Camp Chetek sees hundreds of different people visit the camp, whether they be a camper, sponsor, family member, preacher, pastor, layman, former staff, or someone who has memories from 60 years ago when they were a camper and the Lord called them to the missions field. We have a rich history of the Lord working in the lives of staff, campers and visitors. It is an amazing experience to be a part of the excitement that happens each summer at Camp Chetek.
