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.
Once everyone arrived we watched this year's video yearbook, and then hung out together while we had dinner. As she always does, Deena baked treats for all of our Camp friends. This time she made K&E themed tollhouse cookie bars with red/grey and green/gold candies inside, and of course everything was peanut and tree nut free. She also made gluten free ones, too!
From there the fun REALLY began!
Because the weather was so incredibly beautiful and warm we were able to do some things we don't typically get to during our winter camp gatherings in the Northeast. We went swimming together and hung out in the big outdoor hot tub. Then our older campers stepped into the role of leaders and started a game of beach volleyball with the younger kids, and then taught everyone how to roast marshmallows and make a proper K&E s'more. The parents new to our community couldn't believe how kind and nurturing our 14 and 15 year old campers were to the younger kids. I smiled and explained that this is what K&E kids are like!
As it always is when we bring our camp friends together, it was magical night of fun and laughter and making new memories. We want to thank the Emmers, Minskis, Rosensteins, Sullivans, Ginnis, Labows, Schwartz, and Garg families for taking the time out of their busy lives to join us for the first ever Florida Camp Reunion. We can't wait to see you all on Camp Opening Day in June!
While many of our age groups are already at capacity there are still a few spots left in both our boys camp and girls camp for 2017. If you are interested in scheduling a home visit to learn more about this incredible summer camp community of ours please click on the link below.
