PLEASE NOTE EARLIER THAN USUAL TIME SO KIDS CAN ATTEND!
Bring the kids, and join us as we explore parent-child bonding through Summer Camps and camp games!
Camp Kupugani director Kevin Gordon will present a 10 minute slideshow, and then lead us through games used at his camp that inspire connection, attachment, trust and bonding. Several Holistic Moms have attended a Parent-Child camp at Camp Kupugani!
Following the games, parents and kids can share their experiences with a variety of different types of summer camps (arts, STEM, theater, improv, sports, local, sleep away, etc) for kids ages 5 to 15.
Camp Kupugani – https://campkupugani.com:
“Our Parent-Child weekend provides a fantastic opportunity for Mom or Dad and a child to reinforce the parental bonds and connect with other parents and children. Our relaxing, natural environment, combined with team building and empowerment activities, helps our participants celebrate the essential relationship between parents and children. Fun activities like pool time, dam jumping, and GaGa, also helps to deepen bonds.”

He has been in the camp business since 1990, when he first worked at a girls camp in Wisconsin. After earning his BA at Harvard, Kevin continued working as an assistant camp director, backpacked across Europe shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, traveled throughout Africa, and wrote Not Yet African, a book chronicling his African adventures.
