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 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 Introductory session is available to first-time campers, ages 7 to 10 years old, for their first summer only. Beginning on the same day as either the first or second half-summer session, "The Cubs" have the option, so long as their parents agree, to extend their stay to the end of their session if they choose.
