Varied Programs and Camp Sessions

Camp Kupugani’s multicultural summer camp offers two-week sessions for girls and boys (separately), and offers two- or four-week blended camp sessions for campers of either gender. Our campers come from varied backgrounds and range in age from 7 to 15. We also offer a Mother-Daughter Weekend and a Parent-Child Weekend

For our Team Building Program, our staff members—by guiding and facilitating a group’s movement through an engaging course of structured activities—help organizations of all kinds form solid bonds.

Through our Rental Camp Program, our staff teams up with an incoming group’s director to plan different activities to assure that the campers have a safe, enjoyable, and productive stay at camp.

Where is Camp Kupugani?

The camp is two hours west of Chicago, Illinois, and has an almost 70-year tradition of safely nurturing and developing campers. Located in the rolling hills and woods of Northwestern Illinois, it comprises beautiful woods, trails, a swimming pool, two all-natural rock climbing walls, game fields, and a 5-acre lake for swimming, water games, and almost a mile of canoeing through the property. With 126 acres of forests, wildlife, and wildflowers galore, it offers fresh air, natural water, the robust smell of pure woods and a twinkling night sky.

“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.”
