There are certain moments here that help define a summer. They're moments involving most or all of the community, and make such an indelible impression that people talk about them years or even decades later. Often it's a funny skit during the Opening Counselor Show, a buzzer beater shot during Color War, or a band's unexpectedly amazing performance during Hollowpallooza. Tonight, all of Camp Kenwood experienced one of those unforgettable Camp moments during our annual Lip Sync Contest, and it wasn't just one act, but rather an entire evening of performances that we will all remember.

When Camp is at its best, it's a blend of fun, friendship, adventure, and learning cool new things. That seemed to be on display wherever you looked today.
After a great weekend of a Spirit Day Intercamp competition and an amazing Oddlympics today it was time to get back to our regular schedule. We awoke to a breathtakingly beautiful morning at our overnight camp in NH. Just after breakfast we had Evergreen girls leaving for an all day lacrosse tournament and a swim meet. As they boarded the bus they were all a buzz with talk about the fun they were going to have today playing team sports against other camps. Kenwood's 12 and Under Baseball team played their second game of the summer as well.
Our very happy campers' start the second half of the summer
I always love our Camps' Visiting Day. I get to see some of my favorite people! Yesterday we were thrilled to welcome about 1,400 parents, grandparents and siblings of our campers' for the day. As our families were getting into their cars for the trip home it rained for about 20 minutes, and then everyone went outside to play. And while many of our kids were a bit nervous about saying goodbye to their loved ones, within only minutes of the final departure everyone (and I really mean everyone) was back to having a great time. There was silliness in the Lodges and great times everywhere you looked. Our Big Brothers and Sisters came down to spend time with their little siblings, and both the Evergreen Path and the Kenwood Compound were filled with laughing, smiling faces. It was a great time to be at our summer camp in NH.
