CAMP PROGRAM INFO: What can parents expect of Kingswood? Visitors to Kingswood are immediately struck by the low-key, friendly atmosphere of our camp community. Every summer we work hard to produce that esprit de corps where every boy feels he is an integral member of the group. It all starts with young men and boys who come from homes that possess solid core values and morals. Our families expect Kingswood to provide a happy and safe environment, and to be a place which complements their efforts to instill firm distinctions between right and wrong in their children. It is our mission to be a completely wholesome place, at all times, and without exception.

Kingswood is both owned and directed by the Wipfler family of Bethesda, Maryland. Bob and Alice started running the operation in 1985. The oldest of their three children, Rob, moved to New Hampshire in 2013 to be in position to oversee camp operations year-round, along with his energetic wife, Becky. Another son, Mike, teaches school when not running the camp's daily program during the summer months. Daughter Sara has developed a strong interest in the nature and photography component of Kingswood's program. All Wipflers bleed Kingswood blue! The Wipflers have long known that lots of extra help at the top end is needed, and feel strongly that camps belong in the hands of educators. People who have elected to dedicate their careers to children are best equipped to recognize the many signals kids give as indicators of their sense of well- being.

We call our regular staff gatherings "faculty meetings" where the first agenda topic always is "boys of concern." Youngsters do not slip through the cracks at Kingswood, and we owe much of our success to our top leaders, who help show younger staff how to look at boys through the eyes of professional educators.

A Typical Day: 7:30 reveille- music over the PA system 8:00 breakfast 8:45 clean up 9:30 team sport instruction- by age 10:30 waterfront instruction- by age 11:30 individual activity instruction- by age 12:30 supervised free time 12:45 lunch 2:00 rest hour 3:00 afternoon choice (called "A-Block")- team sports (practices and intercamp games), nature (projects and day trips), creative games (enormous variety) 4:30 supervised free time (called "B-Block"), waterfront (lifeguards on duty), unscheduled time (read, shower, play catch), hang out (be with friends) 6:00 dinner 6:45 free activity (called "Sponsorships") 8:30 all-camp special activity 9:30 cabin activities, target time for lights out for younger boys 10:00 target time for lights out for older boys How is the program scheduling done? The most formal time of the day is the morning instructional time block.

Boys sign up weekly for three daily one-hour "clinics," with several choices available to them for each block. Campers pick from each of three categories: waterfront, team sports and individual activities. Boys are grouped by age in clinics, but counselors offer varied lesson plans depending on the proficiency levels within the group- a major asset in a smaller community. From lunchtime onward, campers are offered a variety of activities which change daily with boys almost always getting their first choice.

The weather, boys' requests, and the directors' sense of balance dictate each day's options. Once they select, boys must attend and we make sure of that! A host of afternoon and evening activities is listed in the camper guidebook. The flexible approaches we take in programming are very popular with campers and counselors alike and are another area where Kingswood stands apart from many other camps.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Becoming a Kingswood counselor is a goal that some boys have from their early days as junior campers. Others come upon this notion later. Having finished sophomore year in high school, they are now mature enough to consider the transition from camper to counselor. The CITs live in The Barn and attend meetings similar to counselor training sessions. The first question posed to CITs is "What does it take to be a good Kingswood counselor?" CITs are given the opportunity to learn from hands-on, supervised experiences in leading clinics and assisting in the camper cabins. The CIT program does more than produce well-trained counselors; it also builds skills that will help young men be successful as they enter college and beyond.

OTHER CAMP INFO: What sorts of trips does the camp take? Most of our trips are designed to take advantage of the lakes and mountains in this beautiful region of America. We feel strongly that children need to establish a connection to nature. Hiking, canoeing, fishing and swimming day trips, and 2-3 day excursions make up the bulk of our offerings. As always, these trips are available to campers as choices, but, admittedly, they are heavily promoted. Most boys go on several trips during a typical stay. Recreational trips, too, are regular offerings. The Fourth of July parade and fireworks, a New England town fair, and the water slide amusement park are examples of special trips taken annually. All campers get to participate.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
Boys come between 3 and 7 weeks. For more information, including dates and rates, go to Our Camp Website Link: www.kingswoodcamp.com.
