KINGSTON'S CAMP ON LARKINS POND
Kingston's Camp is an Independent ALL OUTDOOR Summer Day Camp for Boys & Girls in Grades K - 6th. We are American Camp Association Accredited and a Safety 1st award recipient. Kingston’s Camp is a perfect size for Rhode Island, the smallest state of the Union. We are small and we have everything that matters! Our shelters are Army Tents and Tipis. Some of our storage spaces are lean-toos created every year with wood from our site. We also have changing stalls for campers to change in. There is no electricity, nor is there any need for it.
Larkin’s Pond has a sandy bottom with a gradual incline so we may teach even the youngest campers how to swim without being afraid of accidentally going over their heads. The pond is large enough to be able to catch the wind so we can sail our sunfishes and even the puffer with a jib. It is large enough for a feeling of awe when you are kayaking or canoeing, and it is small enough to always have a lifeguard within a short distance. There is plenty of shoreline for net fishing, and later on in the summer the water recedes for a great beach with resplendent sand castles.
We are large enough to have multiple ‘rooms’ in the forest. Our main field is cleared for a fun game of kick ball, sticks and stones and even mud football. Our Nuke’Em field has a large net for games, such as volleyball and Nuke’Em along with a nice tire swing. We have paths that lead to our Archery area in the woods, and our lunch area with a fire pit so we can keep warm during rainy days. We even have a small frog pond that we visit to investigate nature.
We are small, so our counselors always have a colleague nearby for assistance, and it doesn’t take long to get anywhere!
SCHOOL OF ROCK SEEKONK SUMMER CAMPS
Campers will get a crash course in rocking out, and use what they learned at the end of the week in a live concert! Camp starts off on Monday with an hour of icebreaking games. Then we dive straight into rocking out! With the help of our staff, campers will start learning songs on their respective instruments through individual and group instruction. As songs are learned, new songs are introduced. By the time Friday rolls around campers have a full set of music prepared (typically between 6 and 12 songs). Friday is showtime! Campers will perform what they learned as a band at the end of the camp on Friday afternoon for their friends and family. Rhythm, stage presence, dynamics and feel are all part of the curriculum. Games, band naming, poster design and other fun activities are worked in between learning to keep things fun. You'll be amazed at what campers can accomplish in one week! We have the unique ability to include beginners and challenge seasoned rockers at the same time - all levels of experience welcome! 9am-3pm Monday - Friday, lunch break 12-1.
OCEAN STATE WAVES
The Ocean State Waves 501(c)(3) Non-profit Organization is a member of the New England College Baseball League. Our players come from top collegiate programs throughout the country. The NECBL has over 250 alumni players in professional baseball. In just three years, the Ocean State Waves have had six players get drafted or signed a pro-contract.
“The primary purpose of the NECBL is to promote, foster and cultivate the amateur sport of College Baseball by operating a league of baseball teams located throughout New England. In doing so, the NECBL strives to provide entertainment for the local communities that host the teams.” Article I Section 3 NECBL by-laws
The goal of the Ocean State Waves is to provide young college players with an opportunity to play summer ball enhancing their skills while providing them with an environment that fosters a sense of community. Playing ball at Old Mountain Field in Wakefield gives players an opportunity to get noticed by MLB Scouts while providing the families of South County a place to strengthen community and neighborhood ties. Everyone regardless of income, background, or age can enjoy a great game of baseball. This organization provided 15,000 fans last year with quality baseball at an affordable price.
The objectives of The Ocean State Waves baseball organization are:
To provide affordable family fun with quality baseball.
To engage collegiate students in our local community. (Players have active roles in peer reading programs and field days with some of our community schools and participate in local Red Cross blood mobiles when asked.)
To serve as a positive impact in the community encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
To encourage local families to serve as host families for 9 weeks for our players.
To seek out community support to volunteer in helping with game day operations such as collecting tickets, selling merchandise, and field preparation.
To foster summer intern positions in the areas of sales and sponsorships, coaching and player management, game day operations, marketing, and public relations.
To involve community businesses as sponsors of the team to defray cost of player’s meals, uniforms, and traveling expenses. (NECBL college players do not pay a fee for playing summer ball.)
To support local youth and military organizations. (Any patron wearing a uniform to an Ocean State Waves game will receive free admission throughout the season.)
