AFFILIATION(S): Jewish.

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 INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Dance, Theater, Musical Theater, Music/Band, Fine Arts/Crafts, Video/Filmmaking/Photography, Basketball, Football, Baseball, Weightloss, Soccer, Golf, Gymnastics, Horses/Equestrian, Swimming, Tennis, Waterfront/Aquatics, Volleyball, Academics, Adventure, Wilderness/Nature, and more.

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.

To see some of the films made by our campers this summer please click here.

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!

OTHER CAMP INFO: Imagine a place... Where children are a part of an extraordinary summer camp community that prepares today's children for tomorrow's world. A co-ed summer camp that teaches 21st Century Skills that is a perfect compliment to your child's school year learning.

CAMP LOCATION: The Kroka Village lies nestled in the high country between the watersheds of the Ashuelot and Cold Rivers, on 75 acres of forests, fields, cliffs, and streams adjacent to a large wilderness area. Here we work to bring intention, connection, and a sense of responsibility to the work that we do.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our base camp facility is a functioning organic farm, garden, and community living village where staff and students live side by side. We have three Cree lodges, all hand built by past students, as well as a number of canvas wall tents on platforms. There is no running water or electricity and all cooking is done over open fire. Students engage in the functions of life by working with the animals, harvesting fresh food from the garden, splitting wood, and gathering water. Back behind the dwellings are beautiful woods that lead to a stream and beaver pond; excellent for exploration! This is where students stay when they arrive before heading off on their expedition adventure, and again when they return.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: We offer a wide variety of programs in the summer, spanning from ages 9 - 19. Our programs for younger children foster the spirit of living and playing in nature, while cultivating a connection to the land and setting a foundation for outdoor adventure skills. Our more advanced programs for older students and adults use wilderness expedition and adventure as a tool for experiencing independence, exhilaration, freedom, responsibility, and empowerment, as well as creating deep connections with new friends and the natural world. Please visit our website at Our Camp Website Link: www.kroka.org or call our office at 603-835-9087 for more specific information.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Ocean Leadership Expedition

This is a journey that traverses 100 miles of coastal waters along the picturesque Gulf of Maine from Belfast to Frenchmen Bay just north of Bar Harbor. Along the way we will pass Deer Island and Isle Au Haute, as we travel on to Mount Desert Island. Before leaving for expedition students will craft wooden oars in the Kroka workshop and dehydrate fruit, berries, and meat from our farm for the journey. Our sea faring fleet will consist of solo and tandem ocean kayaks, and oar rigged student-made voyager canoes. When the wind is with us we will sail, and we will learn to navigate with map and compass through the complexity of tides, currents, fog, and many a spruce covered rocky island. We will feast on wild foods, gather seaweed, dig for clams, and fish for mackerel. Ocean treasures will form in our hands as we carve wood and gather basket materials from the tidal line. Students will study Marine Ecology, learn to use a variety of knots, read weather, start fire by friction, and make simple shelters in the wilderness. Students will also develop leadership skills through the practice of leading and following, discussing and debating, and forming a strong sense of community built of new lasting friendships.

You will sleep in a handmade tent or shelter, and your travels will take you through uncharted territory.

Kroka education is experiential and place-based. You learn tree identification to select the right trees for firewood, and to make baskets and paddles. Wilderness medicine is taught miles away from human contact in the depths of winter to the song of the howling wind. History is taught through personal stories of people who have spent their entire lives living on the land. You engage deeply in your learning. This ownership leads to the success of your journey, and your achievement is written on the proud faces of your teammates.

Kroka teachers are outstanding educators and wilderness guides from around the world. They bring to students a depth of experience and breadth of knowledge that is combined with strong character and an unshakable belief in humanity. Their personal life stories speak of extended expeditions, sustainable homesteads, the forgotten arts and crafts of indigenous societies, and passionate work for positive change in the communities around them.

Kroka experiences are holistic. As we travel through wild places we develop the voice of our community, create our daily necessities out of local natural materials, find food and water in the wilderness, and express our learning through poetry, visual arts, journaling, and the creation of a semester book. When we come out of the wilderness, our simple and intentional lifestyle is continued. Our daily lives center around working to fulfill our own needs, minimizing our ecological footprint, and participating positively in our community. Everyone at Kroka, from director to student, carries important community responsibilities, be it tending to the composting toilet, or cleaning the laundry room.

Kroka students are delightful and inspiring young people, marching to a different drumbeat. They form a close-knit community as they learn to live in harmony and see the best in one another.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Kroka Expeditions is committed to awakening in young people a connection to nature and the spirit within, and a capacity for conscious living and compassionate service. We strive to achieve this through wilderness adventure, community living, farming, and the practice of traditional and indigenous skills. -Kroka teachers are an international group of outstanding educators who draw from Russian, Austrian, Ecuadorian, and American outdoor living traditions. -Our campus is a real village, where staff and students live side-by-side in a community made up of student-crafted traditional dwellings. -Kroka is a working farm, where students share in growing, harvesting, preparing, and eating. -We teach and practice traditional handwork skills using natural materials. -We are committed to the participation of all, regardless of ability to pay.

CAMPER AGES: 8-15

TYPE OF CAMP: Overnight/Sleepaway. June - August (see www.camppemi.com for session dates & tuition)

CAMPER GENDER(S): All Boy Campers.

BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Since 1908, Camp Pemigewassett’s abiding mission has been to inspire and support boys aged 8 to 15 as they find their own distinctive paths in becoming self-reliant, caring, and successful young men with a passion for all that they do.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Theater, Musical Theater, Music/Band, Fine Arts/Crafts, Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Golf, Swimming, Tennis, Waterfront/Aquatics, Sailing, Team Sports, Science, Adventure, Travel, Wilderness/Nature, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: Camp Pemigewassett is located on the edge of the White Mountain National Forest and in the heart of New Hampshire’s Lakes Region, in Wentworth, New Hampshire, 30 miles north of Hanover (home of Dartmouth College).

CAMP FACILITIES: Camp Pemigewassett sits besides Lower Baker Pond, a mile long and ¾ mile wide body of water, surrounded by Pemi-owned land, which means no public boat traffic. We have many athletic fields, courts, and ranges, hiking and running trails, two sandy beaches with swimming areas, three streams for exploring and nature study and two campfire circles. We have over 40 buildings, including the Nature Lodge, Woodshop, Library, Mess Hall, Junior Lodge and the Senior Lodge. One of the best ways to see the layout of Camp Pemigewassett is to play with our interactive map!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: We offer instruction and opportunities from beginner through advanced levels in four program areas, sports, nature, music/art/drama, and wilderness trips. Camp Pemigewassett is an all-around camp and is committed equally to excellence in our four program areas. Since 1908, Camp Pemigewassett’s abiding mission has been to inspire and support boys aged 8 to 15 as they find their own distinctive paths in becoming self-reliant, caring, and successful young men with a passion for all that they do.

We believe that Camp Pemigewassett is the oldest summer camp for boys in the country under the same continuous family ownership and management. Founded in 1908 by Edgar and Edwin Fauver and Dudley Reed, Pemi has thrived for well over a century through the vision and commitment of four generations of Fauvers and Reeds.

Pemi recruits staff members who are dedicated to the development of the whole camper, and we train them carefully with an eye to the most informed thinking on the social, physical, and emotional well-being of boys. Our staff’s enhanced leadership, mentorship, and communication skills serve our campers and parents well and become vital traits for staff to carry into future roles and relationships.

Campers of differing backgrounds from all over the world live simply in small and inclusive cabin groups. These close-knit camper families meld with the larger Pemi community in ways that foster key civic values, such as respect for others, integrity, responsibility, sustainability, and generosity of spirit. Our varied program teaches and nurtures practical skills while it encourages the self-challenge, creativity, and resilience that develop a boy’s self-confidence. From the beginning, Pemi’s culture has been one of good humor and joy.

Camp Pemigewassett is an accredited member of the American Camping Association.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Pemi West is a 3.5-week wilderness skills and leadership program that provides a challenging and rewarding experience for 16–17 year old campers.

Participants who wish to extend their leadership training are invited to apply for an optional 2-week Counselor Apprentice Program held at Camp Pemigewassett, Wentworth, NH.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Camp Pemigewassett’s hope is that all boys who wish to attend camp will be able to. Pemi offers a “brother discount” as well as financial assistance to deserving families.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Boys aged 8-15 enroll for one of three sessions at Camp Pemigewassett: full session, first session, or second session. First and Second Sessions provide a solid camp experience within each three-plus week timeframe. Many events and opportunities are unique to each “half,” such that Full Session encompasses all that is offered.

The lake is two miles long and about 3/4 mile wide with practically no other development. Kingswood Camp is located in the western part of New Hampshire, about ten miles from the Connecticut River Valley and on the southwestern boundary of the White Mountain National Forest. It is about thirty miles north of Hanover, a beautiful town and home of Dartmouth College. Driving times are as follows: 2 1/2 hours from Boston; 5 hours from New York City; 10 hours from Baltimore-Washington, D.C.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: What can parents expect of Kingswood? Visitors to Kingswood are immediately struck by the low-key, friendly atmosphere of our camp community. Every summer we work hard to produce that esprit de corps where every boy feels he is an integral member of the group. It all starts with young men and boys who come from homes that possess solid core values and morals. Our families expect Kingswood to provide a happy and safe environment, and to be a place which complements their efforts to instill firm distinctions between right and wrong in their children. It is our mission to be a completely wholesome place, at all times, and without exception.

Kingswood is both owned and directed by the Wipfler family of Bethesda, Maryland. Bob and Alice started running the operation in 1985. The oldest of their three children, Rob, moved to New Hampshire in 2013 to be in position to oversee camp operations year-round, along with his energetic wife, Becky. Another son, Mike, teaches school when not running the camp's daily program during the summer months. Daughter Sara has developed a strong interest in the nature and photography component of Kingswood's program. All Wipflers bleed Kingswood blue! The Wipflers have long known that lots of extra help at the top end is needed, and feel strongly that camps belong in the hands of educators. People who have elected to dedicate their careers to children are best equipped to recognize the many signals kids give as indicators of their sense of well- being.

We call our regular staff gatherings "faculty meetings" where the first agenda topic always is "boys of concern." Youngsters do not slip through the cracks at Kingswood, and we owe much of our success to our top leaders, who help show younger staff how to look at boys through the eyes of professional educators.

A Typical Day: 7:30 reveille- music over the PA system 8:00 breakfast 8:45 clean up 9:30 team sport instruction- by age 10:30 waterfront instruction- by age 11:30 individual activity instruction- by age 12:30 supervised free time 12:45 lunch 2:00 rest hour 3:00 afternoon choice (called "A-Block")- team sports (practices and intercamp games), nature (projects and day trips), creative games (enormous variety) 4:30 supervised free time (called "B-Block"), waterfront (lifeguards on duty), unscheduled time (read, shower, play catch), hang out (be with friends) 6:00 dinner 6:45 free activity (called "Sponsorships") 8:30 all-camp special activity 9:30 cabin activities, target time for lights out for younger boys 10:00 target time for lights out for older boys How is the program scheduling done? The most formal time of the day is the morning instructional time block.

Boys sign up weekly for three daily one-hour "clinics," with several choices available to them for each block. Campers pick from each of three categories: waterfront, team sports and individual activities. Boys are grouped by age in clinics, but counselors offer varied lesson plans depending on the proficiency levels within the group- a major asset in a smaller community. From lunchtime onward, campers are offered a variety of activities which change daily with boys almost always getting their first choice.

The weather, boys' requests, and the directors' sense of balance dictate each day's options. Once they select, boys must attend and we make sure of that! A host of afternoon and evening activities is listed in the camper guidebook. The flexible approaches we take in programming are very popular with campers and counselors alike and are another area where Kingswood stands apart from many other camps.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Becoming a Kingswood counselor is a goal that some boys have from their early days as junior campers. Others come upon this notion later. Having finished sophomore year in high school, they are now mature enough to consider the transition from camper to counselor. The CITs live in The Barn and attend meetings similar to counselor training sessions. The first question posed to CITs is "What does it take to be a good Kingswood counselor?" CITs are given the opportunity to learn from hands-on, supervised experiences in leading clinics and assisting in the camper cabins. The CIT program does more than produce well-trained counselors; it also builds skills that will help young men be successful as they enter college and beyond.

OTHER CAMP INFO: What sorts of trips does the camp take? Most of our trips are designed to take advantage of the lakes and mountains in this beautiful region of America. We feel strongly that children need to establish a connection to nature. Hiking, canoeing, fishing and swimming day trips, and 2-3 day excursions make up the bulk of our offerings. As always, these trips are available to campers as choices, but, admittedly, they are heavily promoted. Most boys go on several trips during a typical stay. Recreational trips, too, are regular offerings. The Fourth of July parade and fireworks, a New England town fair, and the water slide amusement park are examples of special trips taken annually. All campers get to participate.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
Boys come between 3 and 7 weeks. For more information, including dates and rates, go to Our Camp Website Link: www.kingswoodcamp.com.
