Waterfront, Swimming, and Boating Activities

From river walks, river floats, waterfall

Nature

From river walks, river floats, waterfall & dam jumping, there is no better way to spend a hot summer day. A river walk or river float is the perfect activity for cooling off on a warm summer day. During a river walk, campers dressed in life jackets, shorts, t-shirts, and shoes walk the length of the river observing and interacting with the beings that consider the river their home. Campers celebrate the end of a river walk by floating down the river, taking a trip under our very own waterfall, or doing crazy jumps off the dam into our 18-foot deep lake.
Stand-Up Paddleboarding on the Leaf River at Camp Kupugani

Paddle Boarding

Paddle boarding (or SUP, for stand up paddle boarding) is one of the fastest growing outdoor sports around. It’s easy to learn and super fun on the lake and river!
Swimming is always a fun activity on a warm summer day. Our beautiful 30- by 60-foot fully-staffed swimming pool, located in the heart of camp, is the venue for swimming supervision from our certified lifeguards, fun pool games, and diving from our one-meter board.

Whether you’re canoeing in camp up the Leaf River for an hour, paddling around the lake, or practicing canoe tipping on a sunny day, there’s something about the peacefulness of the trees, the smell of the fresh air, and the slight sound of a paddle dipping into the water that makes for a wonderful summer day activity. Our canoeing program focuses on teaching campers the fundamentals. We have high-quality 14-foot and 16-foot synthetic canoes. Whether you’re experienced or a rookie, you learn as much as you want to about canoeing. Instruction is focused on teaching safety, strokes, steering and portaging. Campers are also able to canoe for a mile without leaving camp!
