Our nurturing and child development-focused community attracts kind, young men who desire a community that will help them be their best selves, on and off the field. The seven weeks your boy will spend at Kenwood will be filled with learning real world skills and creating friendships that will last a lifetime.
Through our innovative Structured Choice program, Kenwood campers have the opportunity to take part in a Liberal Arts-style schedule that gives them a unique balance of team and individual sports, visual and performing arts, watersports, and outdoor adventure. Our intentional style of scheduling helps each Kenwood camper grow as an athlete, artist, and performer, while also learning to be a better friend, teammate, and leader. Our counselors, who undergo an intensive training process, model for our boys the importance of finding your passions, being kind to others, and working hard.
Bunk living provides a shared experience for our Kenwood campers that promotes growth, cooperation and compromise. Our bunk counselors have been trained in how to mentor and motivate young men living away from home for the first time. They actively teach life skills including organizational skills, time management skills, and independent living skills – like remembering to shower, brush their teeth, and perform proper hygiene without direction from parents! Your child will get the experience of living away from home well before they enter college and dorm life. Unlike college, our camp counselors will be there to guide and support them as they learn these new skills.
Campers at Kenwood are provided the opportunity to bond with other girls in a safe and supportive environment. The entire community eats three meals a day at the same time in our dining hall. Along with our sister camp, Camp Evergreen for Girls, they are encouraged to develop social skills and age appropriate relationships with campers of all genders.
Our campers hail from all of the country and elsewhere, including New England, the Tri-State area, Florida and California, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.
