Junior Kieve is a 10-day introductory session for boys currently in 2nd through 4th grade. Junior Kieve runs during the full 26-day sessions and is designed to give campers a taste of Kieve’s fun activities, challenging wilderness trips and unique culture.
Junior Kieve I: June 30 – July 9
Junior Kieve II: July 28 – August 6
While many 2nd – 4th graders jump right into Kieve’s full 26-day session, some may choose to attend our 10-day Junior Kieve session if just a taste of camp feels more appropriate for the camper and his family. Our entire camp community celebrates the arrival and departure of these courageous boys who may be living away from home for the first time. The Junior Kieve program has a slightly different schedule and structure than the full session camp so that our qualified counselor staff can support the boys as they become more independent and make Kieve their own.
Junior Kieve campers share a modern cabin with about a dozen other boys of the same grade and age. In addition to the many in-camp activities they will enjoy, these intrepid adventurers will spend one overnight in a tent on Hog Island just off the coast of KWE’s property in Bremen, Maine. Their explorations of Muscongus Bay on the Snowgoose III will teach them about sea creatures and the joys of Maine’s glorious coast.
