BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Founded in 1930, Camps Kenwood and Evergreen is a brother-sister summer camp in NH. Through our innovative program we teach sports, arts, theater, outdoor and adventure, and the 21st century skills that are vital for the world's future leaders and innovators.

CAMP LOCATION: 2 hours North of Boston, and 4 hours from NYC, on 230 beautiful acres of forest and a private 80-acre lake.

CAMP FACILITIES: While we believe that it’s the people who define a camp, we think our outstanding facilities go a long way in making Camps Kenwood and Evergreen the extraordinary place that it is. We have 230 acres of forest and fields, overlooking a half-mile stretch of private lake and beaches in New Hampshire.

Kenwood and Evergreen offer unique and comfortable living communities. New and returning campers are mixed among their age groups to ensure that old friendships are rekindled and new ones are made.

Each age group of Evergreen girls lives in their own lodge, which has multiple sleeping cabins linked by a spacious living room. Our girls tell us that lodge living is one of the most special aspects of life at Evergreen. The communal structure of our lodges gives every girl the opportunity to develop a real relationship with every other person in their group, while helping to prevent the development of cliques.

Our lodges offer many of the comforts of home and are a peaceful retreat for our girls to return to after a full day of activities. Live-in counselors offer guidance, advice, and a supportive adult presence that many of our campers find comforting and essential to a healthy and fun life at camp. Whether they are looking to connect with friends in the living room or take some time to relax in their bunk, we offer each girl the ability to have their individualized needs met.

Kenwood Bunks

In Kenwood, the bunks for each age group are clustered together around a common outdoor area for running, ping pong or having a quiet conversation with a new best friend. Our general counselors live in the same shared space with our campers so they can be fully involved in the daily lives of each and every boy. Our spacious bunks and large grassy areas give our Kenwood boys both indoor and outdoor places to make strong social connections.

Four soccer fields (including a brand new one in 2014!), three baseball diamonds, and 11 clay tennis courts are located throughout our campus. Campers receive quality instruction at every team and individual sports activity area from our nurturing and supportive staff. Our indoor gymnasium is located in the heart of our grounds, next to one of our two beach volleyball courts. Because our gym is so large, we are able to keep all campers active, even during those summer thunderstorms. We round out our athletics program with a basketball court available for a variety of team sports.

Each day we offer the following sports with quality instruction:

Baseball & Softball
Tennis
Soccer
Lacrosse
Basketball
Street Hockey
Volleyball
Gaga
Gymnastics

Our recently renovated archery range is one of our most popular program areas for campers of all ages. Children learn that success at archery comes not from running faster or being stronger, but from learning to concentrate and make careful adjustments to your form. We have both a traditional archery range and our brand new 3-D experience that gives campers the opportunity to take aim at foam rubber dinosaurs and mythological animals.

Our state-of-the-art challenge course features both high and low ropes course elements, with names such as the Giants Ladder, Burma Bridge, Pamper Pole, Nitro Crossing, and our Zip Line. For campers interested in a different sort of challenge, we also have a 40-foot-tall real granite rock climbing wall. Individualized activities combine with team athletics to create a perfectly balanced experience.

Twice daily, campers travel with their age group to the waterfront. In the mornings, campers participate in General Swim (also called “G-Swim”), having the opportunity to dive off the diving board, pal around on a surfboard, swim laps, shoot down on our 27-foot-tall waterslide, take out a boat, fish, build sand castles or just relax on one of our two beautiful beaches.

For campers looking for a little more adventure to their “G-Swim,” our talented ski instructors also teach waterskiing, tubing, and knee & wake boarding. A variety of available tools make these activities available to everyone from children who are trying it for their first time to seasoned veterans.

Each weekday afternoon campers participate in Red Cross-certified swim instruction. Campers learn skills as varied as perfecting a stroke, the proper way to dive, and becoming more comfortable in the water.

Once campers graduate beyond the traditional swim levels they have the opportunity to become Red Cross Certified Lifeguards themselves. Camps Kenwood and Evergreen also offer boating and canoeing instruction, which helps campers prepare for the overnight canoe trip that each age group participates in. This past summer campers enjoyed learning on our newly-created boating obstacle course. The adventure continues off campus as campers of every age have the opportunity to camp out overnight and climb a mountain or canoe to an island.

Four summers ago, we opened the doors of our brand new, 500-seat theater pavilion. Each week our community joins together to watch and cheer a theater production put on by a different age group of campers. Our theater is also where we sing along with visiting performers, watch movies, and gather each Friday for a short Shabbat service.

Visual arts are a major aspect of the Kenwood and Evergreen program. We offer instruction in digital photography, ceramics, arts & crafts, woodworking and movie making. Recently opened studios offer plenty of space for photography, movie making, and ceramic – where we now have five potters wheels and almost 400 clay molds.

This past summer, our campers participated in the Fifth Annual Kenwood & Evergreen Film Festival. Campers made more than 50 short films, with genres ranging from from comedies to action films to documentaries. Our movie making studio now includes high-definition video cameras, computers for editing, and a green screen so that campers can dream even bigger, creating short films that include complex special effects.

Music brings a rich texture to life and is essential for creativity. In our amplified and acoustic music building, campers can try playing an instrument for the first time or perfect prior experience. Instruments like acoustic and electric guitars, drums, keyboards and of course, amplifiers, help anyone discover their own unique sound. Campers can take a lesson with our music instructors, learn a new song, form a rock band or even record a song to put on their iPod.

Our brand new dining hall boasts gorgeous views of our beautiful lake. Three times a day the entire Kenwood and Evergreen community sits down together for a well-cooked meal, along with lots of singing and cheering.

Our camp kitchen is peanut-free, tree nut-free, and sesame-free, so every camper can enjoy a meal without stress. The kitchen staff produces delicious and nutritious meals (including gluten-free), keeps the salad bars stocked with fresh fruit and vegetables, and makes us homemade cakes when someone has a birthday. Visit our Food Allergy section for more information on the accommodations that can be made for your child.

Before breakfast and dinner, all campers and staff gather in the assembly area adjacent to the dining hall. As one big family we share in the triumphs of each age group and salute notable individual achievements – and, of course, sing to any birthday boy or girl.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: We see ourselves as an extension of the at-home support provided by our partner families. And while the skills we hone – and the ways we do so – are a bit different than what’s learned at home, Kenwood and Evergreen’s community is a great complement to the life lessons our parents pass along to their children. We’re very intentional about creating opportunities for our campers to practice certain competencies, which we call life skills. Whether they realize it or not, we help every camper to develop great confidence and independence while they are at camp. Because every camper is an essentially member of our camp community, and they can’t but feel the love and support around them, we are consistently told that our campers discover the best version of themselves.

We are as committed to children and their growth as any institution or program out there, and our community is the primary way we support our campers in this goal. Of course, we wouldn’t be able to create such a community if we didn’t have a blast every day at camp!

Our intentional community, guided by our directors and supported by our staff, is committed to providing a transformative summer experience, where campers develop and strengthen communication, collaboration, leadership, creativity, and critical thinking skills. These are the skills our kids need most as they grow.

At Kenwood and Evergreen, we have the spirit of a traditional camp – with a focus on activities, adventures, and fun – to teach in ways that encourage deeper learning. Our intentional community, guided by our directors and supported by our staff, is designed to create a transformative summer experience for every child.

Campers develop and strengthen effective communication skills, collaboration, positive leadership, creativity, and critical thinking skills through engaging and fun traditional camp activities and creative programs, while living in a caring and supportive community that nurtures social and emotional learning. We help to prepare our campers to be tomorrow’s global citizens and caring leaders.

At Kenwood and Evergreen our incredible staff use as many of the million moments of the summer as possible to build and strengthen this mindset in our campers. Come learn more about how Kenwood and Evergreen is redefining summer enrichment!
