Today was just a gorgeous NH summer day. While the sun was out, and there were almost no clouds in the sky, the temperature was in the mid 80's with very little humidity. What a perfect day for our Kenwood Freshmen and Sophomores to head to Weirs Beach!

This summer our campers will participate in over 85 different day excursions, overnight camping trips, intercamps and travel tournaments. There are so many amazing opportunities for kids of all ages to play team sports, fish, hike, mountain bike, canoe, surf, and paddle board, along with just getting to enjoy the State of New Hampshire with their friends.
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!
Today was a glorious day at camp. We woke up to bright sunshine and few clouds, and almost zero humidity. When I left my cabin at 7am there were already kids awake and outside. In both our boys' and girls' camps the cabins have space to hang out and socialize, and this is especially important for our early risers who need to do so without waking their bunkmates up. All of our girls' lodges have living rooms with couches to sit on and gab, and our boys' bunks have front decks for doing the same. Most mornings the kids who wake up early use these communal spaces to play cards, quietly read a book, and just have fun socializing. Because they have no electronics at camp to turn on or play with, they actually have to interact with one another. This leads to countless more opportunities to have fun and discover new friendships.
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.
Today was the second Monday of the summer, and wherever I went everyone seemed to be enjoying each other’s company. Just after breakfast the Kenwood 12’s Soccer left for an all-day tournament with camps from around the state. According to their coach, the boys gave it their all in 4 grueling games, and they were rewarded with a 3rd place win. They sang the entire bus ride home, and were just so happy to have played well together as a team. Congratulations, boys!
