Imagine the Fun your Child will have at Camp Cha-La-Kee this summer!

February 20, 2024

YMCA Camp Cha-La-Kee was founded in 1957 and has been creating memories and lifelong friendships ever since. With options for a mini, day, or overnight camp, every child has the opportunity to learn new skills and progress to a higher level of confidence and maturity.

Camp sessions offer children a safe, traditional style of camp that focuses on leadership, character development and social responsibility in a fun, outdoor environment. 

YMCA Camp Cha-La-Kee is located on 61 wooded, waterfront acres in Marshall County along the Tennessee River.

At YMCA Camp Cha-La-Kee, we focus on these guiding principles in every area of camp life to help campers become the best they can be while they are at camp and when they go back home:

CARING for themselves and others

HONESTY to themselves and others

RESPONSIBILITY for their actions

POSITIVITY towards themselves and others

RESPECT for themselves and others

RESILIENCY in every situation
