When you sit down to talk about summer camp with your child, are they excited or hesitant about whether they will fit in? These are both common emotions for children, especially if this is their first year at summer camp.
Concerns over meeting new people, being away from home, and over-competitiveness are all normal for children. With thousands of summer camps across the United States, the range from competitive to non-competitive is broad.
Kingsley Pines is a non-competitive summer camp where everyone gets a chance to participate in all camp events and activities. Our campers are offered an extensive list of activity options, while also being given plenty of free time to relax and hang out with their friends.
For many of our campers, whether they are from Maine or out-of-state, summer camp is a unique opportunity for children to make friends, try new things and gain confidence in themselves. It’s an environment for children to grow physically, mentally and emotionally and we believe this is best accomplished in a welcoming, positive and non-competitive atmosphere.
By remaining non-competitive, we encourage all campers to step outside their comfort zone with other similar campers. Trying a new art, craft or sport with a positive support network can lead to success, enjoyment and more participation in the future.
“Becoming skilled in a particular activity can promote participation and increase enjoyment,” according to University of Pittsburgh Men’s Soccer Coach & PhD, Joseph Luxbacher. “Sports such as swimming, tennis, soccer, and golf can provide regular physical activity for a lifetime.”
Our goal at Kingsley Pines Camp is to help campers discover new things that will shape them into open-minded adults down the road.
