Our Multicultural Summer Camp Welcomes International Campers!
If you’re an international camper looking for an exciting, enriching camp experience, Camp Kupugani is the perfect place for you. To celebrate their individual identities, while sharing and celebrating our Camp Kupugani community, our campers come from all over the United States and the world! Campers have come from as far as Japan, China, Liberia, Russia, Ukraine, Jordan, Germany, Anguilla, Spain, and Mexico, with others joining them from the Virgin Islands, California, New Mexico, Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Missouri and Wisconsin, in addition to children from our home state of Illinois. Our campers’ ethnic backgrounds are a nice mix too–including Caucasian, African-American, Bi-racial, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, South Asian, Middle Eastern, and Native American. Our young adults embrace identities from everywhere, and there’s a nice range of economic diversity too. At Camp Kupugani, our kids have it all! We value our international campers, who show their commitment to our program by traveling so far to get here! Therefore, we try to ease the transition as much as possible. If you are traveling directly from outside of the United States to camp, those flights typically arrive at the O’Hare International Airport, which is just 90 minutes’ drive from camp. If you’re changing a number of time zones to arrive here in the U.S. Central time zone, you’re welcome to fly into O’Hare the day before camp starts. We will pick you up (free of charge), and get you to camp, where you can relax and settle any jetlag before opening day. ¡Bienvenido! | Bienvenue! | Willkommen! | Witamy! | ようこそ！ | 오신 것을 환영합니다!
