This has been quite a month for people sending us photos of their great times with their camp friends. I'm not even sure where to begin...
Can you hold a traditional camp fire on the 18th floor of an office in downtown Beijing?
In describing our overnight camp community, Scott has said many times that it is powerful enough that we could hold it in a parking lot. Thankfully, we don't have to, as Kenwood and Evergreen is located on over 230 gorgeous acres of New Hampshire forest. But his sentiment is important: as great as our facilities are, our community could thrive in the most transitory of locations. We see this every fall and winter when we gather in Boston, New York, and Connecticut for Camp reunions, and our campers and staff are just as close with each other as on the final day of the summer.
Many of you may not know that Scott is in China right now. Less than 24 hours after the Boston Area Camp Reunion he hopped on a plane and flew about 20 hours to Beijing. So what is he doing there? He’s working on a couple of very exciting projects. First, and most importantly, he’s actually visiting the campers and families in China who joined our camp family in 2014.
Welcoming new friends to our summer camp in NH
As always, we had a lot going on in and out of Camp today. Evergreen's Mt. Washington trip made it to the top of the mountain. The girls had spectacular weather, and loved the incredible view. Evergreen's dance team had a meet at another camp, and while it is still unclear to us how the judges were scoring the event, our girls were very pleased with how they performed. Kenwood's Inters and Juniors had a day at Weirs Beach. When I was with them they were playing football and frisbee in the sand, and enjoying a hot, sunny day in beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. Evergreen's 11's, 13's and 15's took part in a massive tennis tournament, and many girls advanced to later rounds.
Just after breakfast Kenwood's 1st Year Seniors left on an excursion with Adventure Dave. They traveled to Rye Beach and learned how to paddle board on the ocean. Everyone got up on the boards and enjoyed the surf, and a great time was had by all!
