First Full Day of Boys Camp!

Today was the first day for all of our boy campers! The bright early morning was full of the peaceful sounds of nature and the crunching of twigs from those who awoke early to go on a Nature Hike! Boys experienced the initial Team Activities which helped them learn more about each other as well as each other’s opinions on racial controversies in the thought-provoking activity, Four Corners.  After lunch, campers went through Swim Evals, Nurse Checks and enjoyed a wonderful camp tour with their counselors to explore the beauty of Camp Kupugani!

Olympics Day!

Thursday, we held our camp-wide KUPUGANI OLYMPICS! It was an exciting day as our campers put their athletic skills to the test. The campers were split into red and blue teams. They began their warm up by showing off their muscles, team chants and team colors. They even tried to outdo each other by who can shout their chant the loudest! The Olympics began with a three-legged race (yes there were a few wipe outs toward the finish line :) ... then off to the potato sack race for more laughs and giggles. The slip and slide was a nice cool off during the hot day.

Sing Off Sensation!

As we enjoy our second week of the second session of Girls Kupugani, camp is full of cheerful smiles and laughter with the many friendships formed.  This evening, after another great day of teams and camptivities, campers gathered into the Rec Hall for a game called Sing-Off where campers were able to showcase their knowledge of music with the rest of camp in a fun bantering game! Many songs, dances, and laughs were shared before heading off to their cabins for another eventful day tomorrow. 

Tubular Tuesday!

Good Evening!  Tuesday was filled with trips for our 13, 14, and 15 year-olds to further connect with their respective groups. Our 13 year-olds pitched tents in a distant part of camp for their very own night under the stars and campfire.  Our 14 year-olds headed off to a state park to also camp out and spend the following morning exploring the park's natural caves.  Our 15 year-old group headed twenty minutes away for their special bonding time with each other filled with camping, swimming, campfire, and barbequing.

What Makes You Beautiful

The theme of today at Kupugani was "what makes you beautiful."  All the mirrors in camp were covered, so the girls recognize that beauty is not physical but all about their personality and that it is what is on the inside that counts. In the spirit of the day, the girls were at ease. A lot of them tried new camptivities. Slacklining was the favorite of the day, with crate­stacking hot on its heels. The girls enjoyed a "free to learn" period in the evening.

A Nice Day Five

As we take a moment to remember our fifth camp day, we're pleased with the girls' development; today consisted of a morning of team activities focusing on respecting and honoring diversity which is an especially honored subject at our multicultural all girls camp that we run here at Kupugani.

Wonderful Wednesday at Kupugani

As the campers enjoyed Free to Learn time in the serene Walnut Grove, the incredible kitchen staff prepared breakfast. With the forecast of a warm, sunny day, we reflect on the beginning of our focus on conflict resolution during team building activities. Fostering those skills are an important component of self- and character-building.

A good first day of camptivities

Today, we enjoyed a full regular day camp schedule.  With time now to reflect on the day past, where we began to facilitate fun interactive activities such as inter-galactic conference --all with the ultimate goal of building confidence and trust within each other. We also facilitate these particular activities to build confidence within each individual girl with the ultimate goal of personal empowerment.

Swim Sensation

Today was a beautiful warm day... One lovely camper had her Snickers ice cream dissolve in her hand minutes after buying it from La Tienda. The girls enjoyed the pool nearly all day; when they weren't in the pool, they were basking in the warm sun (or enjoying the shade).
