    Camp Kupugani is a multicultural summer camp for girls and boys located near Chicago, Illinois. Our overnight program, with domestic and international campers, is for children ages 7-15. We offer two-week sessions for girls-only and boys-only, and two- or four-week blended sessions where girls and boys are at camp at the same time, with some intentional co-ed interaction. When your child is at Camp Kupugani they will have the chance to develop life skills while meeting new friends.

    We empower campers and have fun while doing it! Campers of varied backgrounds live, play, and work together--the best teachers of instilling bonds of friendship and trust. We provide a safe atmosphere where they celebrate and appreciate themselves while celebrating and appreciating others. We give them the tools to maximize their potential. At Camp Kupugani, campers have fun while changing their world.

    Our boys-only session, like our girls program, has a carefully considered curriculum and professional, trained counselors to help our campers have a fantastic experience. Our boys do super cool activities—stuff you can’t do elsewhere—like rock climbing, dam jumping, mud volleyball, GaGa, river floating, crate stacking, playing under waterfalls, and much more. You get to explore, get dirty, and live life to the fullest every day! We guarantee good clean fun...well, two out of three anyway!

    Our camp focuses on diversity and communication skills in a fun atmosphere, uniting campers of varied backgrounds and providing them with empowerment and community-building skills so that children aged seven to fifteen expand comfort zones and empower themselves. Our boys excel by developing leadership skills that contribute to personal growth; building themselves up and maximizing confidence. They're challenged and enjoy unparalleled opportunities to grow. Big fun! Big adventure! Big challenge!
