Employment Opportunities at Camp Kupugani

At Camp Kupugani, our camp employment opportunities include administrators, program staff members, counselors, and more. We seek a diverse, multicultural group of dynamic, creative, warm, exuberant, experienced people with strong leadership abilities who are passionate about our vision.   

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.

Camp White Eagle offers a variety of programs. Camp Kupugani multicultural camp for girls offers two-week sessions for girls only. Kupugani for boys offers a two-week session for boys only. Our blended camps offer two-week sessions for campers of either gender. Campers range in age from 7 to 15. 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 with an incoming group’s director to plan different activities to assure that the campers have a safe, enjoyable, and productive stay at camp.
