What is Customized Camping?

Customized camping means that at Kippewa, you choose from a tremendous array of activities to create a weekly schedule just for you!  Each girl has 5 or 6 individually scheduled activity blocks each day, allowing her to enjoy a full day of program covering all of her areas of interest. Evening is a time for campfires, bunk nights, theatrical productions, skit and talent nights, treasure hunts, special events and more, either for a particular cabin, age group, or the camp as a whole.  Once a week, the whole camp comes together for trip day or a special activity.

  • four daily activity blocks of your choice
  • free choice periods
  • one period for either swimming or land sports
  • new schedule every week
  • camp-wide evening activities, special events, trip days
  • optional sailing, hiking and wilderness trips
  • 2 -3 options days each session where campers choose activities throughout the day, trying new things and spending extra time in activities they already know and love

Kippewa girls, ages 7 to 15, are empowered to make their own choices and pursue their own interests. Our caring, nurturing environment encourages girls to try new activities and challenge themselves. Individuality is celebrated!
