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

Posted by Jason Sebell on Nov 20, 2017 2:45:00 PM

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).

With all of our recent blog postings about Camp Friends we could not be more excited about Sunday's upcoming Boston & Rhode Island Area party for New and Returning Junior Campers! We can't wait to see and hang out with so many of our camp friends. The part will be from 2:00 - 4:00pm at Everwood Day Camp in Sharon, MA. We'll be playing games like gaga, kickball and street hockey, working on art projects, and serving snacks and drinks. We'll also be doing fun ice breaker games designed to help our newest campers make friends and lessen their pre-Camp anxiety.

We talk a lot about Camp Friends. How they love you unconditionally, how they know you on such a deep, profound level, and how the friendships forged at our overnight camp in NH seem to last forever. This photo below would be a classic example of how powerful and long lasting Kenwood and Evergreen friendships are.

Beautiful days and silly moments with our Camp friends

Posted by Jason Sebell on Aug 3, 2017 12:26:00 AM

We woke up to another warm summer morning here at Camp. As we stood at morning assembly we marveled at the dozens and dozens of beautiful butterflies that fluttered around the flagpole and landed on our pink and purple flowers. Just like yesterday's visit from the geese, it was a lovely way to start a summer day here in New Hampshire.
