Our campers are really well rounded. Each week they play sports, participate in tournaments, work on amazing art projects, and go on incredible outdoor adventures. One of the many ways that they show their creativity is by researching, writing and directing their own weekly news magazine called the K&E News. The latest edition is out, and we hope you enjoy this camper-made look into life at our brother-sister overnight camp.
One of the defining projects of last summer was the Camps K&E Newscast. The brainchild of our incredible film and music counselors, it was something that a group of our most artistic kids worked on each week throughout the entire summer. Our roving band of camper reporters produced segments on just about every aspect of life here last yearr.
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.
Another Day Of Amazing Tournaments and Trips at Our Brother-Sister Summer Camp in NH
We had a lot of tournaments and trips going on today. Evergreen's Juniper girls were having fun up in Maine on a white water rafting trip. Just after breakfast Evergreen's Freshmen departed for their Pemi River Canoe trip. They fortunately have incredible weather tonight for their camping trip. With no clouds in the sky they appear to have a blanket of stars overhead. Evergreen's 11's, 13's and 15's tennis teams were also traveling today, as were Kenwood's 10's Tennis and 12's Basketball.
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.
At our summer camp in NH our campers are learning many life lessons, including how to dream big and collaborate with one another.
One of the best parts of being at a 7-week summer camp is that you have time to work on long-term projects. You can build something big and complicated in the woodshop, or practice with your rock band until it you capture the sound you are looking for. You can keep going back to the batting cage until you're connecting with the ball in just the right way, or finally get the nerve up to jump off of the zip line. You can try and fail and keep on trying until you accomplish your goal whatever it is. Today, a group of campers completed the first installment of what I can only assume will be one of the defining projects of the summer: The Camps K&E Newscast.
