Camper Connection

16th Annual 9/11 & Family Camp 2017

Kieve-Wavus are pleased to invite families to summer camp from August 13th - August 17th for our Family Adventure Camp.This summer's camp will be held on the Kieve campus joining with a number of families enjoying our 16th Annual 9/11 Family Camp. This is an opportunity to come to camp as a family to learn more about our two camps. Or to rediscover the home of your childhood summers, to reconnect with old friends. This is also a wonderful time to relax and to experience a little bit of what it’s like to be a camper all over again or for the very first time.  As campers you will have the opportunity to try different summer camp activities, go on various local trips, explore both of the Kieve and Wavus camps, or simply share a morsel of time with those you care about most on beautiful Damariscotta Lake.

Here are just a few of the possible activities that alumni and families who join us this year will be able to challenge themselves on:

  • Riflery & Archery
  • High Ropes Course
  • Aqua zip ride
  • Pottery
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Sailing & Swimming
  • Canoeing & Kayaking
  • A trip on the Snowgoose III
  • Trips to other nearby destinations
  • Evening campfires and entertainment

We will provide instruction for activities you haven’t done before, you will live in cabins, all of your meals provided for you (imagine not having to cook for a week!), evening entertainment, and quiet nights by the camp fire. And if you would just like to sit on the porch and read your book, that’s fine too!

In addition to all of our in camp summer activities, there will be a chance to spend the day on Kieve's lobster boat the Snowgoose III and explore other local areas of interest.

We hope you will consider staying with us for the entire 4 days in order to experience the full camp culture however in order to accommodate for busy summer schedules we have the option to stay for only a few nights. If you are staying for the full week (arrive Sunday late afternoon thru Thursday after lunch), the price is $425 for each adult and $300 for each child age 5 - 15 (children under 5 are free). Can't stay the whole week? The cost is $125 adult per night and $75 child per night.

Because of the fact that we are combining these camps, we may ask you to share a cabin with another family if you know them. We will not ask you to share with another family if you are not comfortable with the idea.

Please email Russ Williams if you have any questions about the Adventure Camp, or if you just want to chat. We can't wait to see generations of Kieve and Wavus families together here next summer, and hope this will be the beginning of another wonderful Kieve-Wavus tradition!
