AUGUST 24-27, 2023
Welcome to Midwestern Paradise
As featured by the New York Times, Trybal Gatherings is the leading provider of Jewish camp experiences for young adults and their friends. Set in picturesque landscapes across North America, our Gatherings are designed to let you plug into a dynamic community during an unforgettable weekend escape.
Located on the glistening shores of Blass Lake in the heart of the Wisconsin Dells -- one of America's premier vacation destinations -- Camp Chi offers the serenity of a lakeside resort with the amenities of a first-rate summer camp. Our home away from home is nestled on 600 wooded acres teeming with adventure and Midwestern charm. Among the towering pines, you’ll find miles of horseback riding trails, a private waterfront featuring everything from inflatables to waterskiing, fire circles for evening magic, a zipline to soar over the lake, and all the sporting accouterments to turn open fields into athletic battlegrounds. The weekend is filled with capture the flag, s’mores, color war, ceramics, a relaxed Shabbat dinner, culinary adventures, hammock hangouts, and so much more. Our Midwest camp is the perfect escape to connect with new friends while disconnecting from the real world. The experience is yours to make what you want of it.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Trybal is committed to providing fun, safe, and meaningful experiences. We are requiring all participants to be fully vaccinated and boosted in order to attend our camps and are complying with CDC and Massachusetts state guidelines to host this experience. Learn more about our COVID-19 protocols below.
You’ll get to customize each day by choosing from over 40 classic and out-of-the-box camp activities. While we encourage you to try something new, you're in charge of your own schedule. Start your morning with a Mrs. Maisel workout or sunrise yoga with a DJ on the beach, or just roll into breakfast in time for the mimosa cheer cart and freshly made cheese. Between electives, check your camp mailbox, grab a snack at Bubbe’s Beer Garden, and embrace activities that make you forget to check your phone. Evening programs favorite include The Wisconsin State Fair, Karaoke, Moth Storytelling, and Are You Smarter Than a 90s Kid, just to name a few. No matter what you choose, there's surprise & delight layered into each part of the day. This weekend is yours to relax and recharge the way you want. Our Midwest weekend features these electives, and many, many more:
latte art design
pickling & cheese workshops
Mexican churro babka baking
arts & crafts
slip 'n' slide kickball
live DJ karaoke
Wake up refreshed and ready to embrace the day's adventures and surprises. We offer two housing options for you to get the best night's sleep, including traditional cabins and options to upgrade to private housing. Whether you sign up solo or with a group of friends, are an early riser or crave late-night pillow talk, we honor your rooming preferences and carefully place you into a cabin with likeminded people, who become cabin family before you know it.
Cozy up in our modern cabins, set in small villages. Cabins are included in the registration fee and accommodate 8-10 people, but we like to keep housing spacious. You can opt for co-ed or same-gender housing. Groups of 8+ can request a private cabin.
