New adventures can sometimes bring about new anxieties. New campers are often really excited – and really nervous – at the same time. While our counselors will become important friends and role models, sometimes it’s helpful to also have someone at Camp who is more like an older sibling.
The first few days of camp you will meet your “Kenwood Big Brother.” He’s a 15-year-old experienced camper who can’t wait to meet you! He will quickly become someone you can count onthroughout your time at Camp. He will help you grow more comfortable in your new summer home, meet new friends of different ages, and even be there to help you say goodbye to your family should you decide to stay for the entire summer.
Some nights, your Kenwood Big Brother will stop by to help put you to bed with a classic Camp story. Other times he and the other Big Brothers will take you and your friends out for an afternoon of bowling and ice cream. He will understand what makes you cool and love hanging out with you.
We want you to feel safe, comfortable, and connected at Camp Kenwood. Your “Big Brother” is someone you can trust, talk to, and most importantly have fun with throughout your entire time at Camp.
