I woke up this morning, back at our overnight summer camp in New Hampshire for the first time this summer. The sun was shining, the grass was all freshly mowed, and everywhere I looked I saw something beautiful. After breakfast my family and I strolled around our campus, marvelling at how much we had missed being here, and how happy we all were to be back.
There are many cool, exciting changes in the works at Camps Kenwood & Evergreen! In the Office Luke is working hard on developing a new CrossFit kids program. For those not familiar with it, CrossFit Kids is a program designed to help kids and teenagers develop a lifelong passion for exercise. CrossFit and CrossFit Kids are built on a philosophy of being ‘fit for life’. It incorporates a constant variation of functional movements that kids need to play: pulling, pushing, running, throwing, climbing, lifting and jumping! A CrossFit Kids workout can include anything and everything from bodyweight movements (pull ups, push ups etc) to gymnastics movements (handstands, backwards rolls) to Olympic weightlifting (clean and jerks, snatches) to something as random as flipping a tractor tire. But the coolest thing about CrossFit is that all of the movements can be scaled to any age or level of fitness and are instructed safely by qualified CrossFit Kids Trainers. To learn more about CrossFit we invite you to watch this video.
We have some very exciting Camp facility news. We love our campus, but have always hoped that someday we might be able to expand the number and size of the athletic fields at Kenwood & Evergreen.
