“The kids may get to have all the fun at camp, but I love that as a Kingswood Parent, you still make us feel like an important part of the camp family.”

At Camp Kingswood, we cherish our relationships with our camp families, and we consider you part of our Kingswood family for life. Because of this, we invest deeply in these relationships, working in partnership to solve challenges, celebrate camper successes, and be available for any questions or conversations during the summer and throughout the year. On a very rare occasion, there could be a time when we determine we have reached an impasse with a parent, such that it undermines our ability to work effectively with the family. Should this occur, we reserve the right to ask for a child to be picked up at camp without a refund.

Please show your child that you support and understand our policies and practices. If there’s something that doesn’t make sense to you, please be in touch so we can talk further to provide the philosophy and reasoning behind our very intentional ways of doing things at Camp Kingswood!

Living in a communal setting teaches kids to care about others, to value differences, and to treat others with respect. Navigating differences promotes teamwork and problem-solving, and helps kids to be empathetic friends. At camp, it is important that we all operate according to the same expectations so we can all live together and treat others in the way we are treated. Please review our Code of Conduct with your camper in the following section, or find it in CampInTouch. A copy of the Camper Code of Conduct signed by a parent/guardian and by the camper is due by April 15.

appreciating the magic makers


Our staff work tirelessly to create the magic of camp, and we know they play a special role in the lives of our campers. We love that families want to show gratitude to our counselors for their hard work, and we invite you to make a donation in their honor to our Staff Enrichment Fund, which goes directly to fund staff programming, training, and special events. Kingswood staff are not permitted to accept gratuities, as this contradicts our values and sends the message to staff that campers from families without the means to tip deserve less attention and love. We want our staff to feel equally appreciated, and our campers to feel equally supported. When parents write notes of gratitude we share those letters with the entire staff, including shout-outs to individuals. This is a great way for staff to feel recognized and appreciated!
