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.
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.
Tonight is Halloween which also means that our Boston & Rhode Island Area party for New and Returning Junior Campers is just 19 days away! 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 and street hockey, working on art projects, and serving snacks and drinks. We'll also be taking time to introduce our newest campers to the rest of the Boston and Rhode Island K&E community.
As I wrote in Friday's blog, the entire Camp Office is very excited to celebrate Halloween tomorrow. Many of us will be working late into the night finishing our costumes.
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.
Our final official Camp Reunion of this off-season took place last week in Pompano Beach, Florida, and a great time was had by all! More than 30 campers and parents from around the country joined us to celebrate all things Kenwood and Evergreen.
