A calorimeter is treated as condensed surroundings. Moreover, an exothermic reaction is one which releases heat. Hence,

If a chemical reaction (e.g. system) releases heat, than the temperature of the "surroundings" will increase.

To be sure, the exothermic reaction releases heat to the surroundings.
