Visiting Cousins Bursary Program

 
 

Alumni and families of the Visiting Cousins and Family Kin summer camp experience at Kings Landing know the tremendous value of participating in a week free from technology and full of simple but life-enhancing experiences.

That’s why we’re asking you - alumni of the program - to make a special donation to the Visiting Cousins program to help make the camp experience available to New Brunswick students who might not otherwise have the means.

The Kings Landing Foundation bursary program provides full-tuition bursaries plus their camp pack to 14 New Brunswick students each summer who have been recommended by their teachers for financial support to attend one of the Visiting Cousins summer camps. 

Visiting cousins alumni and their families can support the bursary program by purchasing a leaf on the beautiful Visiting Cousins Alumni Tree, located in the Welcome Centre at Kings Landing.

Your leaf will be engraved with your name so that you can mark your own place in history as a Visiting Cousin, and your full donation will go toward the Visiting Cousins Program.

Pewter leaf: $500

We thank the family of Carl and Dorothy Loughrey for donating the beautiful wrought-iron sculpture that now shines in the Kings Landing Welcome Centre as the Visiting Cousins trees.

And we thank YOU for your tremendous support of future Visiting Cousins participants and alumni.

Make Your Mark in History

 
 

We want every child to discover the value of Kings Landing: a simpler way of life free from technology and full of outdoor fun.  

Support from community donors helps us make the Visiting Cousins summer camp experience available to New Brunswick students who might not otherwise have the means.

Our bursary program provides full-tuition bursaries plus their camp pack to 14 New Brunswick students each summer who have been recommended by their teachers for financial support to attend one of the Visiting Cousins summer camps. 

The Visiting Cousins camp program sees children ages 9 to 14 descend on Kings Landing each week during the summer. Participants are introduced to life as it was in New Brunswick in the 1800’s by dressing in period costume, attending the one-room schoolhouse and experiencing farming, baking, blacksmithing, printing, sewing, harvesting and milling.

Check out the impact the camp has on kids.

We’re asking businesses, organizations, individuals and families to support the Visiting Cousins program at Kings Landing by purchasing a pewter apple that will be placed on the beautiful wrought-iron tree that sits in the Welcome Centre at Kings Landing.

The apple you purchase will be engraved with your name or the name of your business for all to see for generations to come. A tax receipt will be issued for the full amount.

Pewter apple: $1000

We thank the family of Carl and Dorothy Loughrey for donating the beautiful wrought-iron sculpture that now shines in the Kings Landing Welcome Centre as the Visiting Cousins trees.

And we thank YOU for your tremendous support of the Kings Landing Foundation and more importantly, the youth participating in the valuable Visiting Cousins camp program.

Priority project

New Education Residence Building

 
 

One of the key components in successfully running the Visiting Cousins program is proper housing and meals while the children are on site at Kings Landing during their camp week.  Children currently stay in the Slipp House, a traditional two-story home on site. However, there are accessibility issues, no commercial kitchen facility and the house is showing its age. To continue offering an up-to-date summer camp program where children will be comfortable, new housing is required.  

The new Education Residence will provide accommodations for up to 24 weekly summer camp children and will also include a commercial kitchen and a great room for dining and events.  The building will be a central part of the experience for over 200 children each summer.

In the shoulder seasons, the facility will be used by visiting artists, photographers, historians, writers as well as students and instructors from UNB, NB College of Craft & Design, NBCC and others.

Support for this project - through a one-time or monthly donation - will help us meet our commitment to Kings Landing of contributing $150,000 toward this valuable project.
