Bringing A Summer Camp Traditional Camp Fire To China

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.
