Our campers have been on some exciting trips this week. Currently, the Evergreen 2nd Year Seniors are white water canoeing on the Androscogin River, and yesterday Scott took boys of the same age group to Maine for a day of surfing and eating lobster. In the lead up to Hollowpallooza our Athletic Directors Jacki and Bob Mitchell took our oldest Evergreen campers on an adventure in Montreal, Canada, and currently my wife Deena and I are doing the same with our Kenwood Hut 6 campers. It's a 2 night/3 day trip of sight seeing, cultural experiences, amazing meals, and some fantastic bonding. For some of the boys on this trip this is their first time in a foreign country, and we are honored to be their guides. This is a trip we both went on as campers, and it means a great deal to us that we get to lead it this many years later.
Our campers went on many trips this week, and my wife Deena and I were thrilled to lead one of them. For two nights and three days we took our oldest Kenwood campers on a trip to Canada to experience the sights and culture of Montreal. This is a trip we both went on as campers, and it means a great deal to us that we get to lead it this many years later.
You may have noticed that there was no new blog yesterday morning. I was out of Camp for the past few days leading an outdoor adventure trip up in Canada. Every year I have the pleasure of taking Hut 6, our oldest male campers, up to Montreal. We pack a lot into the trip. We tour the old city, take in some its most famous cathedrals and art museums, ride a jet-powered boat across the rapids of the St. Lawrence River, play laser tag in a labrynth the size of a city block, and a whole lot more.
A day in the life of our very happy campers at our summer camp in NH
With such nice weather everyone seemed quite excited to play sports this morning. I watched a whole lot of tennis, lacrosse, volleyball, and basketball. I also saw a great touch football period up on the field of dreams.
