Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 31, 2017 12:11:00 AM

For a lot of our campers and counselors the 6th weekend of the summer is best weekend of the entire year. It started Friday night with the arrival of last summer's graduates and our drive-in movie. On Saturday it included our annual music festival Hollowpallooza, and was capped off on Sunday with our Carnival celebration. It's a couple of days of non-stop fun and excitement with camp friends.

Special events like our Carnival bring us together for a ton of fun

This was the final day of our Homecoming Weekend at our brother-sister overnight camp. To close out this incredible weekend this afternoon we celebrated with our annual camp carnival. This special event goes back to our founding in 1930, and it is also a great day for fun, creativity, and good times with friends. After all of the excitement of yesterday's Hollowpallooza music festival we slept a little late, and then began to prepare for this afternoon's amazing special event. Every camper and counselor was very excited for this year's theme: Star Wars.

Today's Carnival was yet another amazing special event

Today was another favorite annual Kenwood & Evergreen event, and a tremendous end to a weekend of non-stop fun.  All morning our campers and counselors were working together to prepare for this afternoon’s Carnival.  This year’s theme was Disney’s Frozen, and it had both campers and counselors very excited.  As if we weren’t hearing it a lot already this summer, all day we heard kids singing “Let it go!” Just after lunch our Evergreen Freshmen campers got dressed up in all sorts of costumes, taking on the roles of Elsa, Olaf, Anna, Kristoff and so many others.  They sang short, humorous songs that their counselors wrote for them about how great their characters were, and the entire girls’ camp cheered for each of our littlest performers.
