This morning I was made aware of an interesting piece on Kveller.com titled "When Your Kids Are At Camp, Do This If You Can". It was written by Diana Zicklin Berrent, one of our long-time K&E camp parents. Diana is a professional photographer and an avid traveler, and as she writes:

Saying thank you to some of those who help our summer camp community

Posted by Jason Sebell on Aug 2, 2018 8:17:00 AM

At breakfast assembly we celebrated an important K&E tradition. We asked every camper who had recommended our overnight camp to a friend or relative for this summer to step forward and be thanked by the community.

A beautiful day at our overnight camp in NH

Posted by Jason Sebell on Aug 1, 2018 8:14:00 AM

Today may have been the prettiest weather day of the entire summer. From noon until sunset the temperature was in the mid 80's with low humidity, very few clouds in the sky, and a light breeze coming off of the lake. It was a spectacular day to be doing fun activities with camp friends.

A Lip Sync Night no camper or counselor will soon forget

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 26, 2018 8:08:00 AM

There are certain moments here that help define a summer. They're moments involving most or all of the community, and make such an indelible impression that people talk about them years or even decades later. Often it's a funny skit during the Opening Counselor Show, a buzzer beater shot during Color War, or a band's unexpectedly amazing performance during Hollowpallooza. Tonight, all of Camp Kenwood experienced one of those unforgettable Camp moments during our annual Lip Sync Contest, and it wasn't just one act, but rather an entire evening of performances that we will all remember.
