It’s the start of our 18th annual, totally amazing Senior Camper Winter Weekend at our summer camp In NH! At 11am this morning the journey began, and it always feels to me like a trip on the Hogwarts express (minus the owls and chocolate frogs, of course). About 40 Kenwood and Evergreen campers and counselors and I boarded a […]
It’s the start of our 17th annual, totally amazing Senior Camper Winter Weekend at our summer camp In NH! At 11am this morning the journey began, and it always feels to me like a trip on the Hogwarts express (minus the owls and chocolate frogs). About 50 Kenwood and Evergreen campers and counselors and I boarded a private Amtrak […]
We get so much pleasure seeing how much our campers, counselors, parents and alumni enjoying being with each other throughout the entire year. During the month of the December we were especially pleased to see that Kenwood and Evergreen camp friends took time out of their busy lives to hang out with each other across […]
We are a sleepaway camp community that loves being together, both during the summer and throughout the school year. Last weekend we came together for our annual camp reunion in the Boston and Rhode Island area. Campers, counselors, members of our leadership team, and even some of our amazing dining hall staff came together for […]
Yesterday was our overnight camp’s annual Boston Area Fall Camper Party for campers, ages 7-12 years old. It was a jam packed fun afternoon of getting to do some of our favorite summer camp activities. We played gaga, street hockey, indoor soccer, ping pong, and basketball. We also worked on art projects like painting and decorating […]
One of the best things about Camp Friends is how they are so often willing to go the extra mile in helping out. Longtime Kenwood and Evergreen counselors Josh and Sean were interested in becoming serious bakers. Not having much experience in this department they reached out to Kristie Archer, our overnight camp’s expert at […]
With all of our recent blog postings about Camp Friends we could not be more excited about Sunday’s upcoming Boston & Rhode Island Area party for New and Returning Junior Campers! We can’t wait to see and hang out with so many of our camp friends. The part will be from 2:00 – 4:00pm at Everwood […]
We talk a lot about Camp Friends. How they love you unconditionally, how they know you on such a deep, profound level, and how the friendships forged at our overnight camp in NH seem to last forever. This photo below would be a classic example of how powerful and long lasting Kenwood and Evergreen friendships […]
We woke up to another warm summer morning here at Camp. As we stood at morning assembly we marveled at the dozens and dozens of beautiful butterflies that fluttered around the flagpole and landed on our pink and purple flowers. Just like yesterday’s visit from the geese, it was a lovely way to start a […]
Our final official Camp Reunion of this off-season took place last week in Pompano Beach, Florida, and a great time was had by all! More than 30 campers and parents from around the country joined us to celebrate all things Kenwood and Evergreen.
Sign up begins today for our Camp Alumni Reunion scheduled for this August 18 – 20, 2017. Based on the emails and phone calls we got from when we announced this event this looks to be the biggest Camp Alumni Reunion in our summer camp’s 87 year history!
This really is the best weekend of the entire year! We live for this. As I wrote about in yesterday’s blog, for 17 years we have brought more than 100 campers and counselors up to our overnight camp in NH for a special weekend in the snow. This is always our favorite weekend of the year, […]
I write a lot about how the friendships made at our summer camp in NH last a lifetime. Spending 7 weeks together collaborating as teammates, cast members, or bunkmates creates a foundation for friendship like I just have never seen anywhere else. Just last week I posted a series of blogs about how much our […]
Camp friendships: it’s one of our favorite topics. Our brother-sister community is, at its core, about bringing friendly young people together to develop friendships that will last a lifetime. In Tuesday’s blog I posted the dozens of recent photos sent to us by current campers and counselors from their time spent hanging out together. Today we […]
