A summer at Chica Sports & Fitness helps our campers learn skills such as independence, leadership and respect. After their time at Chica Sports & Fitness campers will return home with a higher level of confidence in herself, her choices and the way she treats others. Our camp community fosters this growth through a series of age-appropriate challenges, organized sports exploration, and guidance from caring role models.
