We have worked to maintain the integrity of the camp experience for the boys by avoiding the coming and going created by lots of session lengths and choices. Most of the boys, regardless of age, come to Kabeyun for one of the two four-week sessions. The whole community starts and departs at the same time, assuring the boys of the chance to connect with everyone at camp - we all get to know each other very well, and very fast.
Typically, about 15-20% of the boys stay through the changeover, for the Extended Stay or The Summer sessions. Therefore, we begin again at the start of Half Summer II with all the same group bonding and orientation activities as the start of Half Summer I. Boys who attend Half Summer II only do not come into an already-established camp community.
Visit the Director's Blog in the Resources section and read the "How Many Weeks?" entry for a full discussion of the session lengths at Kabeyun.
Kabeyun believes that ability to pay should not be a limiting factor in a boy’s enrollment. Learn more about Kabeyun's tuition assistance program.
The two-week Introductory session is available to a limited number of first-time campers, under the age of 12, for their first summer only. We find this option is best-suited to younger campers who might lack the stamina for four weeks away from home or are nervous about their first camp experience. Beginning on the same day as either the first or second half-summer session, they have the option, so long as their parents agree, to extend their stay to the end of their session if they choose.
The counseling internship program at Kabeyun is a wonderful opportunity for older, returning campers to expand their involvement with camp and to prepare for the challenges they will face if, in the future, they join the Kabeyun staff. The intern program is vastly different from the summers participants have experienced in the past. There is a focused and specific curriculum, concentrated on developing leadership, teaching, and group management skills. Interns work closely with counselors in activities and in the cabin, observing and being observed, teaching and co-teaching. These experiences are enhanced through regular group meetings, workshops, and individual feedback conferences. And, while graduates of the program are invariably more prepared for the challenges of camp counseling work than they would otherwise be, participation in and completion of the intern program in no way guarantees future employment on Kabeyun’s staff.
