Our summer camp's fall and winter traditions begin!

Posted by Jason Sebell on Oct 11, 2018 9:12:00 PM

As an overnight camp we have many, many traditions. Some take place during the summer, like our ceremonial campfires, fabulous music festival, and Color War. Others take place during the 10 months out of the year when we are all away from our favorite place. One of those traditions is the annual ""Where Your Camp Shirt", in which we

A video cure for those who are feeling camp sick because of the return to school

Posted by Jason Sebell on Sep 4, 2018 4:10:02 PM

Most of our campers returned to school today or last week, and we've been hearing from so many about how much they miss Camp and their Camp friends. With that in mind we wanted to share the photo slideshows from both the Kenwood and Evergreen closing banquets. We invite you to click on them, crank up the volume, and relive some of our favorite moments from this past summer!

Videos of our summer 2018 Broadway style theatrical productions!

Posted by Jason Sebell on Aug 16, 2018 7:40:24 PM

Every summer our campers have the opportunity to put on elaborate Broadway-style musical theater productions. They spend weeks working together as a theater company rehearsing their lines, blocking scenes, practicing the choreography, making costumes, painting the sets and scenery, and learning lighting and sound design. This year our two productions were "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat" and "13", and we are proud to present to you each show!

At the end of every week we post a wrap up video for our camp parents to see some of the fun and amazing things we did at camp during the last 7 days. Well, today our talented staff film maker Emily Shaw not only has that to share, but also a second video that is a look at some of the sports our campers played during the first day of Color War. We hope that you enjoy them both and want to thank Emily for going above and beyond today for our Camp parents!

Two Unforgettable Color War Breakouts

Posted by Jason Sebell on Aug 10, 2018 1:29:00 AM

Tonight was the 6th Anything Can Happen Thursday of the summer, and BOY did we have a lot planned. Our campers walked into the dining hall wondering if Kenwood or Evergreen's color war would be breaking out tonight. In the end both did, but not at the same time, and in very different ways.

Greetings from Montreal, Canada!

Posted by Jason Sebell on Aug 8, 2018 8:14:00 AM

Our campers have been on some exciting trips this week. Currently, the Evergreen 2nd Year Seniors are white water canoeing on the Androscogin River, and yesterday Scott took boys of the same age group to Maine for a day of surfing and eating lobster. In the lead up to Hollowpallooza our Athletic Directors Jacki and Bob Mitchell took our oldest Evergreen campers on an adventure in Montreal, Canada, and currently my wife Deena and I are doing the same with our Kenwood Hut 6 campers. It's a 2 night/3 day trip of sight seeing, cultural experiences, amazing meals, and some fantastic bonding. For some of the boys on this trip this is their first time in a foreign country, and we are honored to be their guides. This is a trip we both went on as campers, and it means a great deal to us that we get to lead it this many years later.

For a lot of our campers and counselors the 6th weekend of the summer is best weekend of the entire year. It started Friday night with the arrival of last summer's graduates and our drive-in movie. On Saturday it included our annual music festival Hollowpallooza, and was capped off on Sunday with our Carnival celebration. It's a couple of days of non-stop fun and excitement with camp friends.
