This coming weekend our brother-sister summer camp in New Hampshire is thrilled to be participating in the Northeast Food Allergy Product & Resource Expo. The largest gathering of food allergy products and services in all of New England, we are proud to be the only camp invited to participate!
For many years our summer camp community has supported a charity called "Mickey's Kids". Named after former K&E counselor & camp parent Mickey Dank, it raises money to make the overnight camp experience available for children from economically disadvantaged families.
Children walk away from our New Camper Parties excited and energized for their first summer at our brother-sister summer camp in NH. And yet, in the days before these events, some of our new campers express anxiety about going somewhere to meet so many new people. If that young person lives in your home please show them this quick 45 second video that highlights all of the fun and friendship making they will have at our events this May!

For many years our summer camp has had an annual contest called "Where Your Camp Shirt". The rules are pretty simple: the camper or campers in each camp who travel the farthest from our beautiful campus in Wilmot, New Hampshire and snap a photo wearing a piece of camp apparel win a CampsK&E-related prize created just for them.
Just as I was writing yesterday's blog post announcing our upcoming parties for new campers a package arrived on my desk from the UK. Opening it up I discovered 2 treasures: some delicious Cadbury chocolates that cannot be purchased in the United States, and the letter below.
We are getting really excited for our upcoming New Camper Parties in the New York and Boston areas this May. New Camper Parties go a long way towards helping our newest campers and camp parents feel great about joining our brother-sister summer camp community, and give families an opportunity to meet some of our year-round team and counselors. Our camp experience is all about making close friendships, and we want that to start before the summer even begins!
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.
At a number of recent Camp events parents and campers have asked me the same question: so what DO you do at the Senior Camper Winter Weekend? They know that about 100 of our senior campers and counselors travel up to our campus in New Hampshire, and that it's the best event of the entire year, but beyond that it seems to be shrouded in a bit of mystery.
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!
We are so excited for our Florida Camp Reunion on Wednesday, February 22nd! We've already had a ton of sign ups from our families in Miami, Boca and West Palm Beach, and also know that many of our Northeast campers who will be down South for vacation are also planning to join us. Yeah!
