This was quite a 4th week of the summer here at camp. In the midst of some pretty amazing weather we had our annual event called Big Weekend, both camps had their big softball tournaments, there were tons of canoe and mountain climbs, Adventure Dave led some outdoor adventures, the biggest Polar Swims in our history, and tons and tons of great activities! Make sure to check it all out in this week's wrap up video below:
We had an amazing 3rd week of the summer. It began with Spirit Day and Cartoon Mania, and was then followed by some pretty fantastic day trips, overnight hikes, tournaments, and great times on campus. Click below to watch so many of the best moments of this past week at our overnight camp in NH!
Camp Parents ask me all the time what do you do when it rains? The answer is very simple: we play outside and it's the best time ever!
When I'm giving tours during the summer one of the most common questions that I get asked is so what do you do at camp when it rains? At a lot of other camps they watch movies or sit in their bunks and wait for the clouds to pass. Not at K&E. This is one of those questions we LOVE to answer because we do amazing things, and whenever possible, we play outside in the rain!
Teaching our very happy campers important lessons about resilience and adaptability
It was already hot when we woke up this morning. By 11am it was well into the 90's and muggy. As always, our campers were total troopers, and more than once I heard someone say "hey, at least it's not snowing!" After the winter we had in the northeast I understand the sentiment. To help with the heat, we placed these cool new misting fans on our ball fields throughout camp. They attach to a hose, and project fine water droplets into the air to help cool down our kids while they take water breaks. As you can imagine, they were a tremendous hit!
Everywhere I went today I saw great activities. Some of our Kenwood seniors were in the music building practicing a Maroon 5 number, complete with a horn section and righteous keyboards. A group of intrepid Kenwood freshmen went on an excursion with Adventure Dave to a nearby lake. After hunting for turtles and frogs they then took turns on a rope swing that enabled them to leap into the refreshing water. Every camper on the trip took a turn!
