A Fun First Full Day of Girls Camp

We started off the day by waking up in the cabins after a good night’s sleep. Some early bird campers woke up at 6 am for a morning nature walk and others slept in until it was officially time to get ready for the day. Once the early birds returned to their cabins and everyone was awake, they took showers and brushed their teeth. After everyone got dressed, we headed down to our morning circle. There we shared the quote of the day and asked the campers to share their thoughts about it. We then sang our morning song “Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong With Me” and sent the campers off to the dining hall for breakfast. Breakfast today was pancakes and sausage with grapes.

After we enjoyed our meal, we broke off into our cabin groups to take care of some camp chores. When we finished, we met our teams for the first time and did team building activities and icebreakers. After that, we had a delicious lunch of Sloppy Janes and veggies and then went back to the cabins for Siesta. After quiet time at Siesta, the campers took a swim evaluation, toured the camp and had some free time to get to know each other at top field. After that was done, the campers got to purchase snacks from the camp store, La Tienda. Then the swim evaluations, tours, and games picked back up. After the activities were done, we headed back to the cabins to get changed for dinner. We had Bratwursts, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes (“German Night!)” The evening activity today was Diversity Bingo. The goal of the bingo is for the campers to learn more about each other’s backgrounds and identities in a fun way. After bingo, we dismissed the campers with our Goodnight Song and headed back to our cabins for lights out. It was a wonderful first day here at Camp Kupugani!

“My kids won’t stop talking about all the cool things they did, the friends they made, and how badly they want to return next year to Camp Kupugani.”


“Our kids have been growing, learning, and enjoying themselves at Camp Kupugani since 2007. The dedicated and diverse leadership and staff provide a safe, encouraging, well-rounded, and valuable experience for campers. Campers learn from and with each other how to value differences, create meaningful connections and thrive.”


“This camp is amazing and exceeded my expectations. I went for a Mother / Daughter Weekend to reconnect with my daughter and we did that for sure. Thank you Camp Kupugani! My daughter loved it so much we immediately signed up for the 2-week girls-only session for the following summer.”


I love camp because it is a safe place to be myself without being criticized for it.”
