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!
