Big Chiff Nursery School & Camp

Big Chief is large enough to offer its campers a variety of activities, yet small enough to offer each child the individual attention that you, as parents, are looking for.
At Big Chief, we never economize on the well being and happiness of our campers; your child is our main concern.
We are a family-owned and operated camp and take a special interest in each and every child that comes into our care.
Big Chief has been serving the surrounding area since 1954.
Our excellent staff, fine program, modern facilities and dedication to children have earned us our fine reputation.
