Big Brothers & Sisters
‘New adventures and experiences can also bring with them new anxieties’
At Kenwood & Evergreen our newest younger campers are connected with a Big Brother or Big Sister during the first few days of the summer. First time campers find that having a Camp Big Brother or Big Sister as a role model – in addition to nurturing counselors – has a big impact on their ability to adjust quickly to the Camp experience. Later in that first week our new Camp siblings leave our campus with their counselors for an afternoon of bowling or swimming, bonding and ice cream. Throughout the summer the Big Brothers and Sisters gather with their Little Siblings for campfires, games, barbecues, hangout time, and periodic (but important!) check ins. Our Big Brothers & Sisters play a crucial role in helping our youngest campers feel welcome and cared for.
