We woke up this morning to some delightful news. Spokin, the food allergy app, had profiled us on their website in a list of "Top Food Allergy-Friendly Overnight Camps". For a very long time we have been proud to be the summer home for boys and girls allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, mustard, dairy, eggs, citrus, mustard, and more! Click on the image below to see what they said. And thanks to Spokin for recognizing our efforts to keep our friends with food allergies safe!
I'm often asked by prospective parents "so do K&E campers go on any trips?" Do they ever! This summer we have more than 75 day and overnight trips on our calendar, and we'll likely add a few more before our 7 week camp experience is over.
This was one of the happiest days at our summer camp in NH this summer. The weather was perfect, and it seemed to help everyone be in an even better mood. Our incredible chefs made a breakfast that included homemade french toast, lemon scones, scrambled eggs, and a whole lot of fresh blueberries and strawberries.
In camp things were very busy down by the lake. Campers were wake boarding, tubing, and water skiing. They were also taking canoes to beaver dam to hunt for turtles, and fishing off of the sand bar at the edge of the Kenwood waterfront.
As I was leaving my office this morning I heard this wonderful sound coming from our performing arts center. I ran in just as a group of Evergreen Freshmen and Sophomores were finishing singing a song for Friday's performance. I said to them "that was so good I needed to see the whole thing. Would you consider doing it on more time?" They were happy to oblige. As you can see, our entire summer camp community is excited for Friday's play.
A Fun, Relaxing Day At Our Brother-Sister Summer Camp In NH
Today was a nice, fun, relaxing morning at Camp. At morning Assembly, when our community gathers to discuss the upcoming events of the day, everyone was acting a little silly. Our Ropes Course counselors announced that today was "Silly Top" Wednesday. To demonstrate what they meant, they pretend to be on the cat walk at a fashion event, showing off their silly shirts and tops. Everyone giggled and cheered for them.
Today our very happy campers were exploring and creating at our summer camp in NH
Our busy, happy week continues! Just after breakfast the Evergreen Juniors departed for their hike up Mt. Major. Because of thunder concerns they did not sleep out tonight, but as you can see from the photo above they had an incredible time on this adventure, just loving being together. I feel like this picture highlights exactly what our summer camp community is all about. Many thanks to counselor Sarah Rossien for taking it!
The Juniors weren’t the only ones braving the outdoors today. Our Evergreen Sophomores also went on their own trek up Mt. Kearsarge. In just over 1 hour and 45 minutes they made it to the top. Afterwards, they enjoyed a lunch with an incredible view of the forests of NH, picked some wild blueberries, and then headed back down for the return trip to Camp.
