This has been quite a month for people sending us photos of their great times with their camp friends. I'm not even sure where to begin...
Can you hold a traditional camp fire on the 18th floor of an office in downtown Beijing?
In describing our overnight camp community, Scott has said many times that it is powerful enough that we could hold it in a parking lot. Thankfully, we don't have to, as Kenwood and Evergreen is located on over 230 gorgeous acres of New Hampshire forest. But his sentiment is important: as great as our facilities are, our community could thrive in the most transitory of locations. We see this every fall and winter when we gather in Boston, New York, and Connecticut for Camp reunions, and our campers and staff are just as close with each other as on the final day of the summer.
A camp director remembers what it is like to be having a great time in a new place, and yet also yearn for home
It's been many years since I was a new camper, so while I can understand the challenges a homesick camper is going through, it has been almost 3 decades since I felt it myself. This past week while on a business trip in China I was suddenly reminded of what it can feel like.
We are getting really excited for our upcoming New Camper Party on Sunday, May 17th. First year families from all over the United States will be joining us for an amazing party that will include the opportunity to meet some of our year-round team and counselors, as well as make friends with other campers who are coming to Kenwood & Evergreen for the first time. We’ll climb on the indoor climbing walls, learn Camp songs and cheers, and have a lot of fun. We’ll also serve pizza and refreshments afterwards. It's a K&E event, so everything with be peanut and tree nut free, and we'll also have gluten free alternatives for our GF friends.
