It was the morning after a wonderful Visiting Day and everyone seemed to be in a good and silly mood. Like this guy who decided to wear an octopus on his head to breakfast.
It was a morning for first time campers to celebrate with their counselors that they decided to stay and enjoy the last three weeks of the summer.
It was a good morning for hugging friends, too.
The weather was warm and sunny and the lake was filled with happy campers bouncing on all of the inflatables.
Bands were practicing in the music building for our upcoming Hollowpallooza festival this coming Saturday.
Basketball practices were also taking place in the gym (since we all know that Color War is coming soon!).
Both the ropes course and rock climbing wall were open, and campers were trying to complete new challenges.
There were also some very spirited games of Gaga.
The members of our different dance teams were practicing for Thursday's tournament against camps from around New England.
Over at Arts & Crafts campers of all ages were making buckets and buckets of slime.
On the softball and baseball diamonds our coaches were running practices and drills.
The Kenwood Seniors took a day trip to Hanover and these guys came back with a fun toy they all had to share.
Chef Charles and his team made a fabulous lunch of homemade mac and cheese, and a delicious black bean, tomato and cheese sandwich that had everyone talking. Dinner was marinated chicken and steak soft shelled tacos with all sorts of grilled vegetables to layer on.
After such a busy day Evergreen enjoyed sitting together and watching a move in the theater.
Kenwood's younger campers had one of their favorite evening activities of the summer: Junior Camp Capture the Flag.
Everyone tried their hardest, and at the same time had a lot of fun.
A good time was definitely had by all.
The teams were incredibly fair, with the final score being a fabulous 700...to 705! Afterwards, the boys stood together and held hands while they sang Taps.
So many wonderful moments of happiness, of playing, of trying new things, and of being together for the start of the 5th week of this incredible summer!
