The Countdown to Summer Camp Has Begun! Are You Ready?

Friends 3

It was starting to feel like winter would never release its icy grip on New England, but April is here is and sure enough, the countdown to summer camp has begun.

Our staff is busy preparing Kingsley Pines Camp for another exciting year of fun adventures and memory making, and we hope you’re ready to join us.

With less than three months until summer camp begins, here are a few things you can do to make sure you and your child are ready.

Research your summer camp and enroll

This first step is perhaps the most important for first time campers as it allows the camper and the family to learn about the daily routine, activities and culture of the camp the child will be attending to see if it will be a good match. Be sure to enroll early, as waiting until the last minute can limit a child’s options or even prevent them from being able to attend. We want every child to get to experience a summer at Kingsley Pines, so start planning now if you haven’t already.

Plan and pack

Depending on how long your child is attending camp will determine what they’ll need to bring to camp. Sit down with your child a few weeks in advance and make a list. While it’s important to make sure they have the essentials like plenty of socks, sunscreen and toothpaste, it’s also wise to bring a few comforts of home like photographs of family or a favorite stuffed animal.

Get excited!

Summer camp is a special event that only happens once a year but provides enough memories for the rest of the year. Taking time to find answers to questions you and your child might have will better prepare you both for the child’s time away from home.

Imminent Ice Out on Panther Lake!!

002There is a long tradition in Maine of guessing when the ice will be out of the lakes! As many of you know it has been a very cold winter, so the ice out dates (when all of the ice is melted) this year has been delayed!

I was at camp today and the ice out for Panther Lake appears imminent! It was fun to see how much the melting ice had shifted in just the couple hours between the first time I visited and the next! It was so nice out that I went up to see the progress on the new Boys Cabin Tuckerman. I also took a picture of the snowbank that is left from our sledding run for the Winter Party!

There are still some snowbanks but with mud season here it feels like it can’t be long before camp starts and everyone arrives. We look forward to seeing all the campers and staff soon. Of course, then the only Iceberg in the lake will be our inflatable climbing floating toy!

Take the Entire Family to Kingsley Pines Family Camp

Asherman Family

It has become more difficult for families to find time to spend with each other these days. With more and more after school and extracurricular activities, children often have schedules that rival many adults, and that doesn’t leave a lot of unstructured bonding time.

Kingsley Pines Camp offers a powerful solution in our Family Camp. This camp allows families to unplug and enjoy quality, unscheduled time with each other. So what makes family summer camp so different from any other camping trip?

The fun is limitless

Families have access to all of our wonderful facilities, resources and staff, taking the work out of planning activities or having to pack your own canoe. We have it all right on site ready for you to enjoy.

No need to worry about food

Our dining staff will take care of your meals so you can focus on more important things like the family volleyball tournament or a relaxing kayak paddle across beautiful Panther Lake.

Free time for adults and children

Everyone likes a little time away to relax and be themselves. Our staff will give children a chance to participate in activities independently while the adults get to kick back and enjoy the peace and quiet, or interact with other adults.

Family summer camp at Kingsley Pines Camp in Maine provides an amazing opportunity for families to leave technology behind and reconnect with the great outdoors.
