Happy days and great adventures at our summer camp in NH

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 9, 2015 2:56:00 AM

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, gorgeous day of activities and adventures at our overnight camp

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 8, 2015 3:01:00 AM

It was a really fun, gorgeous day at our overnight camp in New Hampshire today. Or, at least, it was gorgeous for most of the day. Wherever I walked around campers were having a fantastic time at our activities. In the wood shop our Freshman boys had decided that they wanted to create wooden boats. Counselor Mike showed them a template and how to use it to measure the necessary pieces of wood. Then they spent the period cutting and sanding each piece. This is a long-term project that they are all really excited about. Once completed they plan to have a race down at the water front!

New and Fun Experiences at Camp

Posted by Jason Sebell on Jul 10, 2013 3:14:00 PM

Yesterday was a day great for fun and new experiences at Camp. Our Kenwood 1st Year Seniors left on the most challenging mountain hike of their Camp careers. Filled with a mixture of excitement and trepidation they left for their expedition up Mt. Washington. By mid-day they had reached the halfway point. Led by Tex, our head of overnight adventures, some set up the campsite while others worked on getting dinner prepared. The boys had a beautiful night sleeping on the mountain, and we await a report from the group leader saying that they have reached the summit!
