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; 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.  We will pick you up (free of charge), and get you to camp, where you can enjoy a fantastic Kupugani experience! ¡Bienvenido! | Bienvenue! | Willkommen! | Witamy! | ようこそ! | 오신 것을 환영합니다!
