Friday, , just after Services and the showing of the weekly video wrap up, we brought everyone in the community to the tent. The kids weren't quite sure what was going on, though many of the older campers suspected that something was up. And they were right, for it was time for the Big Weekend Breakout.
Tonight, we began another amazing special event at our summer camp in NH. After dinner and free play our Evergreen girls went to the theater tent for their annual Plaque and Skit night. In Kenwood, our boys took part in a new event called "Yacht or Not" in the Hollow. Take a look at this video below to see how it began, and then how it suddenly became a fantastic, crazy, high-energy start of our boys' Color War that we call Maroon and Grey. This was one Color War Breakout you do not want to miss!
Two long-time, beloved counselors, Josh and Alexander, will be the head coaches for Camp Kenwood's Maroon and Grey teams this Color War. We wish them, and both of their teams, an amazing and fun color war filled with great moments and lots of camp spirit. More on our boys' camp's Color War tomorrow, along with an announcement when our girls' camp starts its own special event!

Amazing Special Events For Both Kenwood and Evergreen
Today was another very busy day at our summer camp in NH. Just after breakfast Kenwood began its first day of Color War. All morning and afternoon campers were participating in all of the team and individual sports we have worked on over the last 5+ weeks of the summer. During this first day of Color War our boys played games of hockey, basketball, ultimate frisbee, tennis, archery and speedball. Tonight, after dinner, the teams squared off in the hollow for the annual first night activity of this special event: Capture the Flag.
The start of another amazing special event: Maroon and Grey 2014!
Tonight, we began another amazing special event at our summer camp in NH. After dinner and free play our Kenwood and Evergreen inters & juniors put on their musical theater production of "Seussical". After almost 5 weeks of working on this show our young actors were extremely excited to perform in front of the community. I will try and post some clips from this show tomorrow, but let me say in advance that the performances were AMAZING. You could see from the audience how much fun they were all having. The singing, dancing and acting was great, and the choice to move the production outside was both novel and enjoyable for everyone. Bravo to our inters and juniors who worked so hard on this great musical!
After the play our Evergreen girls headed back to their bunks, while Kenwood had an event called Plaque and Skit night. Each bunk wrote a funny skit and acted it out in front of the rest of the boys' camp. Just as our 12-year old campers were finishing off their performances this message flashed across a screen in our theater tent:
