Postcards from our overnight camp's past, and our Alumni reunion

In just under a month our overnight camp in NH is about to begin its 86th season! And in that time we've created some pretty cool relics and regalia. One of Scott's pastimes is finding treasures from Kenwood and Evergreen's past that pop up on places like Ebay.

We spend a lot of time at our brother-sister summer camp in New Hampshire talking about how to make the world a better place. We teach our campers not only how to be more empathetic, but also the art of conflict resolution and compromise. It results in charitable efforts like the bake sale that our 8 and 9 year old girls ran last summer to raise money for a local domestic abuse shelter, and our big and little sibling program during the summer.
