A fabulous day at the beach for our boys

Today was just a gorgeous NH summer day. While the sun was out, and there were almost no clouds in the sky, the temperature was in the mid 80's with very little humidity. What a perfect day for our Kenwood Freshmen and Sophomores to head to Weirs Beach!

Turning a rainy day into a chance to party

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 18, 2018 8:05:00 AM

One of the best things about our counselors is how they try to find every opportunity to show our campers a great time. This day started off a little wet and cold. It began to rain during the walk to breakfast, and for most of the morning there were showers overhead. It didn't stop us from having fun at our arts and sports activities, but as lunch approached you could see that a lot of people were looking for a reason to change their mood.

There's gold in them thar hills!

It was Saturday morning so we let our campers and counselors sleep late and recharge their batteries. After a delicious meal of breakfast burritos, home fries, and 6 different types of fresh berries everyone headed back to their bunks for cleanup. Then both camps had another round of their intramural leagues. Then we all made our way to the dining hall lunch.

An Anything Can Happen Thursday of Paint Balls, Iron Chef and Karaoke

Thursdays are quickly shaping up to be the favorite day of the week this summer. As I wrote in a blog last week, we recently premiered a new weekly event called Anything Can Happen Thursdays. The idea behind this event is that once a week the kids can come to dinner prepared to be a mix of surprised and wowed by whatever unexpected dinner our Leadership Team has planned. Tonight was definitely one of those nights!

The second week of the summer has begun and we had a lot going on today.
