Through experience and observing Role Models kids develop wisdom. At Kingsley Pines Camp our staff demonstrate kindness, caring, and empathy! It is a child centric place where children are exposed to new people, activities, and place. The social skills developed at camp are invaluable in a child’s development: meeting new people, improving conversation skills, and developing conflict resolution skills.
The Kingsley Pines Camp community is built around the philosophy of “Doing the right thing”! This is a skill the one best learns through experience. If errors in judgement occur in a caring and supportive environment, a child has the opportunity to make a course correction, rather than becoming defensive or even aggressive.
We teach judgement and common sense with an emphasis on thoughtfulness and morality. Our staff work as a team to make sure “No Child is left behind”. They are always guiding, role modeling, and being support active.
Character is the MOST important thing a child can learn at KP. It involves respect for ones self and for others. Campers learn to ask themselves: “Am I doing the right thing”! Children learn to do the right thing, the right way, for the right reason!!
