The second week of the summer has begun and we had a lot going on today. There were many, many day and overnight trips, including an Evergreen 15-and-Under Lacrosse tournament (which we won!), a Kenwood 1st Year Seniors 3-day expedition up Mt Washington, all of Evergreen’s Junior Campers at a water park, and Hut 6’s […]
After the game both camps had a quick swim, and then we had an amazing dinner cooked by Chef Charles. Then the entire camp came together in the theater for the return of another much-loved Camp event: Battle of the Wits. Started by our former Owner/Director Arthur Sharenow decades ago, this is an event designed […]
Our summer camp in NH takes part in a lot of trips and tournaments. Over the course of our 7-week season we collectively are involved in more than 85 separate out of Camp events. We climb mountains and canoe on white water rapids. We visit beaches, waterfalls and caves. We play in tournaments for basketball, baseball, softball, lacrosse, […]

Tonight we both created a new tradition and brought one back that had been gone for almost 2 decades. When our campers and counselors arrived at Assembly our Evergreen Head Counselor Courtney was holding up signs for each month of the year. Everyone was curious as she began handing them out to different campers and […]

We know that entering a new community can be hard for even the most extroverted person. Campfires are one of our favorite ways to help welcome new campers and counselors join our extended camp family, and help make sure they know our community’s norms, values and traditions. This short video is a look into what […]
According to my camera I took 287 photos of our campers today. Here are some of my favorites! I feel like together they tell the story of what we did here today at Kenwood and Evergreen.
We woke up this morning to the first reveille of the summer, and Scott’s announcement “everybody up…it’s going to be a BEAUTIFUL day today. Rise and shine!” And a beautiful day it most certainly was.
Would you like to see some of the fun and excitement we had during the Opening Day of Camp this year?
For over 60 years one of the most beloved buildings on the Kenwood and Evergreen campus has been our gymnasium. We are thrilled to announce that after almost a year of hard work it has been fully renovated and is ready for the summer of 2018!
As a Camp Director there are few greater joys than seeing one of your former campers living their dream. Last night, Scott, Deena and I had the pleasure of witnessing one of those moments.
Twelve long years ago Scott Brody, Owner & Director of our overnight camp in NH, began working on a passion project. The goal was to help create and pass federal legislation that would allow summer camps access to FBI fingerprint background checks when vetting possible volunteers and employees. Criminal background checks are an essential part […]
