Our innovative Structured Choice program gives campers the opportunity to experience more than 35 different and exciting activities, while also being guided towards our core sports and waterfront activities.
Each weekday there are three 1-hour activity periods per morning and three 1-hour activity periods per afternoon. Campers in each age group have 2, 3 or 4 activity choices per hour. Structured Choice enables campers to pursue activities they are most passionate about, while also building friendships with children outside of their own bunk.
Our unit leaders in each age group are responsible for tracking the activities each camper chooses, and helping them achieve a balanced schedule.
A typical Structured Choice schedule looks like this (though every day of the summer is different!):
|1st Morning Period||Tennis, Soccer, Basketball|
|2nd Morning Period||Ceramics, Woodshop, Dance|
|3rd Morning Period||Swim, Inflatables, Boating, Fishing|
|1st Afternoon Period||Arts & Crafts, 3D Printing, Baseball|
|2nd Afternoon Period||Rock Climbing, Archery, Filmmaking, Lacrosse|
|3rd Afternoon Period||Clinic - A period for a camper to focus on their favorite activity|
This is our newest program innovation! Each Monday campers get to pick an activity they are passionate about and participate in it for 5 straight afternoons during the final activity period of the day. This allows campers more time to pursue their favorite activities, and allows for greater skill building.
Clinic activity options change each week. Examples:
|Week #1||Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Filmmaking, Ceramics, Ropes Course / Rock Climbing
|Week #2||Lacrosse, Tennis, Woodshop, Cooking, 3D Printing, Archery|
|Week #3||Hockey, Flag Football, Music, Photography, Gymnastics and Mountain Biking
CLINIC is also when travel sports teams have their practices, and when our Broadway-style theater productions have rehearsals
On weekends we bring Kenwood and Evergreen together for fun and exciting special events. These include:
- Sports Intercamps
- Intramural Sports
- Big Weekend
- Hollowpallooza Music Festival
- Ultimate Capture the Flag
- Color War
Weekends are an opportunity for campers to build friendships with campers of both camps, and for siblings to spend quality time with one another.
