Welcome to Kiniya
Greetings from Kiniya!
Whether you are a returning camper eagerly awaiting Opening Day, or a new camper dreaming ahead to the many possibilities this summer will bring, get ready for an amazing experience! Kiniya is set in a beautiful setting, on the shores of Lake Champlain, and is nurtured by committed, caring and competent leaders and staff. Built into each day, we’ll provide a genuine and meaningful camp experience, which fosters quality relationships, a strong sense of community, and exciting fun – as necessary today as ever.
At Kiniya, everyone is here to have a great time and we know the importance that friendship plays in that. That’s why we create opportunities for you to connect with girls from a variety of backgrounds – many of whom will share similar interests to you! It won’t take long for you to realize that there’s always someone to go and spend time with at activities! Friendships at camp are based on honesty and a deep sense of caring and the emphasis is on looking out for each other, so girls don’t get left behind. As a result, campers and staff alike develop the most meaningful relationships…ones that often last a lifetime.
Sense of Community
You learn the true meaning of community while at Camp. You will feel connected with others and gain respect for each person. The Kiniya community is one that is founded on trust, honesty, loyalty, accountability, and compassion/caring. We celebrate the uniqueness that each individual brings with them but also realize the similarities we have in needs.
Enthusiasm, a positive attitude, and a willingness to try new things are the three essential ingredients you’ll need to bring with you in order to have a great time at Camp! With these three things in mind, we’ll set up an abundance of opportunities to enjoy and a chance for you to make the most of every day. Get ready, once you’re settled in the days fly by!
I could not be more excited for this upcoming summer at Camp, the many promises that it brings for our girls, and for the opportunity to work in partnership with our fabulous lineup of leaders and staff in providing a “Best Ever” experience!
I cannot wait for the summer to begin and hope you’ll be a part of it!
