Every day we run two blocks of camptivities, where the campers have a choice of 3-4 different activities per block. Today we had mud volley ball, lake play,climbing, 9 square in the air, and crate stacking!

Camp Kupugani spirit is in full force today, all the boys are having a wonderful time! Don't forget to get your fix of camper action later tonight on bunk1.

One of the most important aspects of any summer camp, is the chance to spend time away from the various forms of technology that are ever present in our daily lives.

At camp, children get the opportunity to play outside and truly live in the moment, free from any other distractions. Take a look at the video below - what was your favorite game as a child? And what do you think your child's response to the same question would be?

Let's #RediscoverNature this summer and take a little bit of camp back home with us!

What a fantastic first day of camptivities! We've made some exciting new additions this session, including touch rugby and paddle boarding. But of course, we always have some water time scheduled to cool off in this heat!

Be sure to check out Bunk1 later tonight to catch up on all the action! http://ow.ly/i/bWGlo

Tonight we had diversity show and tell. Each camper brought an item from their own culture to share with the others.

We've had campers from as far as Japan and China who have come to spend their summer at Kupugani!

Today we held our annual Kupugani Olympics. From Bucket Head to Toilet Mummy and Whip Cream Pie Races to the Balloon Coloring Game, everyone had a blast! It's always exciting to see each team cheering one another on and really supporting each other.

What do twister, mud volleyball, and giant jenga all have in common? Kupugani's amazing race that's what! Our campers spent a fantastic morning in their teams, racing against the clock to complete all their challenges.

The boys loved all the fun, and we at Kupugani were proud of their excellent spirit and team work. Another AMAZING day here at camp!

Celebrating our Kupugani community today with cabin day! After sleeping out under the stars last night, the boys spent a relaxed day participating in their choice of activities with their cabin mates.

Much fun was had by all, but now our campers are resting up for a very exciting morning tomorrow... check back tomorrow to see what your boys got up to!

What's that you say? Yes! It's the much anticipated camp wide game of capture the flag! The boys played 8 rounds of capture the flag, and only stopped because the sun went down!

Here's a sneak peak at all the action...

Yesterday marked the end of our girls sessions for the summer and today, we transition into boys camp! We are especially excited for boys camp this summer as our boys enrollment has increased over 40%!!! WOOHOO! The 2015 season also heralds the future onset of a blended camp (plus continued boys-only and girls-only sessions) in the 2016 season. Today, our new gaggle of boys enjoyed big group games such as Ship Island, Running with the Bulls, and RoShamBo Evolution before their welcoming campfire! As the boys sleep tonight, the excitement only builds for the first full day of camp tomorrow!

We enjoyed the Untalent Show and Camp Dance earlier this evening, with all the girls shaking it on the dance floor after watching and supporting an unprecedented 20+ acts during the Untalent Show! Looking forward the Olympics tomorrow!

Camp
We are a diverse multicultural camp that offers overnight sessions for girls-only groups, boys-only groups, mother/daughter weekends, and camp rentals for retreats and special events. We believe in empowering children through various activities, to grow in confidence, leadership, and friendship.

Since 1951, Camp Kupugani has provided children a secure summer camp environment that encourages the discovery of self and a sense of wonder in the natural world. It is comprised of beautiful woods, trails, a swimming pool, two all natural limestone rock climbing walls, game fields, and a 5-acre lake for swimming, water games, and canoeing. With wildlife and wildflowers galore, it offers fresh air, natural water, the robust smell of pure woods, and a twinkling night sky.

(I published this review yesterday, and it disappeared.) We saw glowing reports about this camp online before we entrusted our daughter to Kupugani's care. I hope my review will help you avoid making a similar costly (in so many ways, money-wise least importantly!) choice for your child. (Note that this camp is called Kupugani for girls and White Eagle for boys.) Daughter had fun, but parents were less than happy. First off, this is a lot of money for a really rustic camp (almost $1k/week). We had assumed that the camp would be as nice as the faaaaaaar less expensive one our kids have attended in the past. But it's pretty sad. Bathrooms in a separate building, cabins with many bunks squeezed into a small space, scary-looking pool, dangerous-looking lights/ceiling fans in the screened-in rec room. It appears that the kids did a lot of fun activities, but this price tag is awfully high for what we could see. Also, our daughter gained 20% of her body weight in a month. How much she chose to eat is very much on her, but what kind of food was provided to make it possible? She says she saw some salads and carrot sticks, but that's it for fresh vegetables. And she had some grapes and apples. Everything else in the fruit/veg department was canned. Sounds like the food was low quality--again, very strange for a camp that costs this much. The worst, though, was a frightening incident involving an adult male possibly having contact with our 12-year-old daughter. The director many times refused to answer our questions...was more interested in "fixing" problems he doesn't know anything about than fixing the one he's in charge of. And he wanted to talk directly to our daughter after camp....creepy! We still don't know what really happened. Our daughter says there was nothing, but then why did the director call us in a panic? We suspect that he made the whole thing up since he's not willing to talk to us about it now.

Response from the owner - in the last week
We of course appreciate feedback and seek it out from our campers and families so that we can continue to improve our camp programs. We seek to be the best camp we can for everyone,. while understanding that no camp can be the best answer for all parents/families. We encourage folks to research our camp (and any camp) thoroughly, and speak or otherwise communicate directly with parent references so that they can get a good feel for what the camp experience entails. Partnering with our parents and campers to maximize child development is our goal. I'm sorry that your parental experience is not positive; our camper surveys reflect positively. Because our focus is always 100% on the personal development of our campers, we remain interested in supporting child if/how we can. Peace Kevin (and all of us at Camp Kupugani)
