Yesterday was one of the best, most relaxing, happiest Visiting Days I can remember in the last 30 years. And yet as great as it was it had to come to an end. By 3:30 our camp parents were on their way home, and as a community we started preparing for the 5th week of the Summer of 2017.

Very Happy Campers | Amazing Special Events

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 7, 2014 4:06:00 AM

Our very happy campers spent today participating in some great special events

We slept late again today and had a nice relaxing morning. Following breakfast the entire campus changed their bed sheets and cleaned their bunks. Then Kenwood had its weekly Watermelon softball league games. Watermelon League is a tradition that dates back to the founding of our camp. Throughout the summer teams with campers of all different ages, led by counselors, play in an intramural league. There’s a little bit of competition and a whole lot of fun, and it’s a great way to help make sure that all of the boys in our community get to know each other well. While our boys were playing softball all of Evergreen was down at the waterfront. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and our girls were thrilled to have a morning to swim, canoe, kayak, fish, and go off of the inflatables in the lake.

Very Happy Campers | Summer Camp Rituals

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 1, 2014 3:23:00 AM

It's day two of the summer of 2014, and already we have some very happy campers

It's hard to not be a happy camper on a day like today. The weather was perfect -- warm and sunny with beautiful blue skies all day long. Today was our second full day of the summer, and with it came a number of important summer camp rituals. Just after breakfast both camps lined up to take some photos. We took group portraits of both Kenwood and Evergreen, each unit and bunk, and then every individual camper. It was fun to bring everyone together to take some photos that will hang in the dining hall for decades to come.

After picture taking we rolled out to activities. Evergreen campers of all ages took tennis lessons, and for the first time this summer kids were behind the water ski boat. We also had boys and girls slipping down our 27-ft inflatable water slide, and others testing out our other new inflatable called the Rocket
