The weather has been cooling off here at camp over the past few months. As you may have heard, Maine was even recently hit by a big snowstorm! It was a beautiful day and a balmy 65 degrees outside today! So we all decided it was high time to get our last swim in for the season.
Alan, Drew & Jean put on their swim attire and raced to the lake while Laura Jo and Angie offered moral support from the beach. You may recall that the lake is normally the temperature of bath water during the summer. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the water temperature in November. Alan and Drew dove in first with no inhibitions. Jean chickened-out at first, but finally gave in and dunked. And of course, once you've dunked, why not stay in a little longer? So Drew took Jean waterskiing, making sure she had her lifejacket on and buckled properly- safety first! She even did a little surfing. To her surprise, Alan and Drew thought it would be a great idea to sneak up and tip her off the surfboard. Jean was understandably not as excited about that idea.
Soon, the lake will ice over. But the first day it melts, we won't be able to hold ourselves back from enjoying yet another brisk and refreshing swim in the waters of Panther Pond. See more photos here!

Kingsley Pines is a member of the American Camping Association and has been almost since our inception. We are proud to announce that this past summer we received huge accolades from our accreditation visitors regarding our dedication and dilligence in meeting the high standards set forth by the ACA.
Every three years the ACA visits Kingsley Pines during the summer to evaluate our compliance with national industry standards pertaining to waterfront safety, transportation, food service, hiring procedures, staff training, health and wellness, and a host of other important areas. This year, as in the past, Kingsley Pines passed with flying colors. It takes a lot of time and energy to prepare for the site visit. Thanks to our dedicated staff, we once again proved why Kingsley Pines is such a great environment for both children and staff. Congratulations to us!!
