Kingsley Pines Family Vacation Camp in Maine Includes Pure Fun  for Everyone. Maine Kingsley Pines Hiking at Family CampSummer camp by definition is pure fun, so imagine a summer camp for the whole family. A place with no schedule conflicts, no dishes to do, no chores to complete, forget the laundry - a place where everyone gets in on the fun. Each summer Kingsley Pines provides just that – a family camp.

Here's the scoop. Located on picture-postcard Panther Lake in Southern Maine, Kingsley Pines has a splendid private sandy beach framing crystal clear water with an average water temperature of 75-80 degrees. More than 80 acres of old tall pine trees shade the grounds making summer days feel easy. The annual summer family camp program allows all family members to enjoy the great outdoors in a beautiful setting, with the amenities of an all-inclusive resort. 

They offer a wide variety of relaxing, fun, and challenging activities for children and adults. Activities include, archery, art, basketball, canoeing, climbing tower, fishing, hiking, kayaking, low ropes course, mountain biking, water-skiing and wakeboarding, just to name a few.  All activities are optional, and parents are free to attend an activity with their child.  Supervised activities are provided for children four and older.  Bonus Points: In addition, organized activities are also available for adults.  Of course there is always the option to just sit and relax on the beach or read a book on the lodge porch.

The facility includes private cabins that are located along the lake or nestled among their great pines.  Many of the cabins have private bathrooms.  Cabins without bathrooms share modern bathhouses nearby and not to worry, all cabins have electricity.   Maine Kingsley Pines Family Camp Beach Time

Go for the food. Not surprising, Family Camp is known for its great food.  The chef has established a reputation for creating appealing and delicious meals.  Guests enjoy Maine blueberry pancakes, homemade cinnamon rolls, steak and chicken barbecues, and of course a traditional Maine lobster bake.  Bonus Points: There are always specially prepared dishes for vegetarians and of course many kid-friendly options.  Meals are served buffet style and eaten at lakeside picnic tables or inside the modern and spacious dining hall.

The annual Family Camp is held the last two weeks of August. If this sounds like fun, make plans early.  Due to the camps popularity, it fills up fast. If the whole family can't make it one parent with the kid or kids will do. The atmosphere is friendly and unassuming so single parents with children fit right in.
