Kabeyun’s blog shares our philosophy and thoughts on the role of camp in developing strong, confident, caring boys at our summer camp on Lake Winnipesaukee.
Meet Jason Knight. He's helping develop the next generation of Kabeyun counselors. In 2023, he'll be back to lead a small group of 16 year-olds through our counseling intern program.
Have you checked out the photos from our most recent camp sessions yet? It is an amazing collection of images that capture something special about the opportunities Kabeyun provides, and the overarching opportunity for each camper to “choose your own adventure.”
Summer camp provides a screen-free summer experience where children can go on adventures, learn in nature’s classroom, and make life-long friends. At Kabeyun, boys grow in social maturity and emotional intelligence. What are the specific psychological benefits of sending your son to an overnight camp? Here are four we have observed.
Our discussions from last summer have helped me not only frame what camp means to me, but have inspired a call to action I will continue to ask as long as I am a member of this community: “What can I do to help make sure that Kabeyun truly is a place where all are welcome and feel free from the fear of failure and the fear of judgment?”
We asked eight parents of returning campers and alumni to share suggestions for families who are sending boys to camp for the first time. Their advice ranged from the utterly practical to the philosophical. All of it is valuable, although some suggestions may “ring true” for your family more than others – you know your son best. Here are their tips, organized by topics.
You never know when you'll run into Kabeyun folks. This summer, serendipity created what 1980's alum Stark Draper calls a "sweet meetup" on the trails of the White Mountains.
Yes, it may not seem like it now, but summer will be here soon. In a few short months -- just over 100 days from now! -- camp and the lake will have both fully thawed out from this winter and we will once again have our full complement of campers and staff all following that same old winding trail down towards Porter’s Dock, ready for the next reignition of the Kabeyun fire to mark the start of another summer of fun, friendship, growth, and adventure.
Every fall, we hear from parents who are delighted and amazed at the growth they see in their sons when they return from Kabeyun. This year, we received photos and a travelogue, too! It came from the parents of Eli and Jake R., brothers ages 9 and 11 who have distinguished themselves as dedicated, capable paddlers.
