"What I like most about working with Chalmers is their genuine care and concern to do their very best for you! They truly listen, respond with an action plan and follow up to make sure your needs have been satisfied. Chalmers is all about doing 'the right thing'. I respect that level of integrity and commitment to the camp community."

"The Chalmers experience goes beyond the 'perks' that other insurance companies offer. Chalmers has always been responsive and follows through on their promise. In our business, when we need our insurance company, we need support quickly and efficiently. We appreciate the security that comes from knowing that Chalmers has our back!"

"Chalmers insurance isn’t 'the same old thing.' It’s fresh, local, and approachable. It’s also personalized to the unique mental, emotional and social health needs of our campers and staff. Bottom line, Chalmers truly cares about the camp community."
