Core Values at Camp Kupugani

We exist for children as they are…so they imagine the people they can become.

In keeping with our core values, we empower children and have fun while doing it! “Kupugani” means “to raise oneself up.” That’s exactly what we do. 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, children have fun while changing their world.

Our Core Values

These core values guide our decisions, activities, actions, and expectations of campers and staff. Each one is connected and related to each other. They are concepts we live by everyday.


Do Your Best

We strive to be our best and encourage others to do the same. We have high standards and bring with us a great deal of knowledge, expertise, and commitment. Camp requires a spirit of cooperation and a positive attitude. By having a staff of caring, moral and ethical role models, as well as a program that demonstrates tolerance and acceptance while providing clear limits, we allow campers to excel.

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” – Audre Lorde
