This is a message of love from Camp on Valentine's Day. We miss you and hope that you and your family are having a great day. We are so happy to have such a vibrant and loving community, and love that you are a part of it! Wherever you are in the world today we hope that you are with the people that you love, and know that we are thinking about you.
Just as we are committed to the health and growth of each member of our community, the Administration at Kenwood & Evergreen is dedicated to developing new and exciting offerings each summer that meet the evolving needs of our camp families. It’s why in the past few years we've added Lacrosse, GAGA and the Waterslide to our program, and will be premiering Cooking this coming summer. As another example, starting earlier this winter Scott and I began to work with a company of consultants who are helping us re-examine our Dining Hall menus. Some of the changes will be obvious – like new items, meals or ingredients – while others will be less noticeable and more behind the scenes. One of our goals is to purchase more fruits and vegetables grown locally, so that we can increase the nutrients in our foods while also lowering our overall carbon footprint. It’s really exciting stuff, and we are having a great time working on this project!
I spend a whole lot of time in my car, driving to the houses and apartments of the new campers interested in joining the Kenwood & Evergreen community. And with so many hours spent by myself I have this incredible opportunity to listen to some very powerful recordings. Lately, in between the weekly broadcasts of NPR’s “Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me” and whatever music has recently captured my fancy, I’ve also been enjoying samples from the vast collection of TED talks.
This past weekend about 250 members of our Camp Community got together for our annual reunion in NJ. Campers, Parents and Staff from the Tri-State Area, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts braved the cold and snow to spend a few hours with their camp friends at a NY Sports Club. We played basketball, soccer and hockey, went swimming, ate pizza, and just enjoyed our time together. Ours is a community that really enjoys being with one another.
