Our 17th Annual Senior Camper Winter Weekend Has Begun!

Posted by Jason Sebell on Feb 2, 2018 11:57:00 PM

It's the start of our 17th annual, totally amazing Senior Camper Winter Weekend at our summer camp In NH!

At 11am this morning the journey began, and it always feels to me like a trip on the Hogwarts express (minus the owls and chocolate frogs). About 50 Kenwood and Evergreen campers and counselors and I boarded a private Amtrak train car at New York's Penn Station and headed north. Every year on this trip I love watching how it literally takes seconds for our kids and staff to get back into "camp mode". Campers and counselors were hugging and laughing and kind to each other, and it felt like Kenwood and Evergreen even though we were standing in the middle of an NYC train station.

We are a sleepaway camp community that loves being together, both during the summer and throughout the school year.

Last weekend we came together for our annual camp reunion in the Boston and Rhode Island area. Campers, counselors, members of our leadership team, and even some of our amazing dining hall staff came together for a snowy night of fun with camp friends.

A super fun party to help our returning and new campers make incredible friendships

Yesterday was our overnight camp's annual Boston Area Fall Camper Party for campers, ages 7-12 years old.  It was a jam packed fun afternoon of getting to do some of our favorite summer camp activities. We played gaga, street hockey, indoor soccer, ping pong, and basketball. We also worked on art projects like painting and decorating wooden photo frames and making friendship bracelets.

Cookie making lessons from our Camp Friend and Super Baker Kristie Archer

Posted by Jason Sebell on Nov 17, 2017 3:01:00 PM

One of the best things about Camp Friends is how they are so often willing to go the extra mile in helping out. Longtime Kenwood and Evergreen counselors Josh and Sean were interested in becoming serious bakers. Not having much experience in this department they reached out to Kristie Archer, our overnight camp's expert at all things flour and dough. For many years now she has been delighting our summer camp community each day with from-scratch delectable cookies, cakes, muffins, pies, and more (and always peanut and tree nut free).

This photo below would be a classic example of how powerful and long lasting Kenwood and Evergreen friendships are.
