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.
