The Upcoming CT Area Camp Reunion, and A Great Camper-Counselor VideoFebruary 4, 2015
It’s February, which means that it’s time for our annual camp reunion in the Tri-State area. With our campus in New Hampshire we travel throughout the off-season to host reunions where our campers live, including NYC, Boston, and New Jersey. This year we are moving our February event to a new location – Chelsea Piers in Stamford, CT. This Saturday, February 7th more than 300 campers, counselors, parents and alumni will be gathering with us to spend time with their camp friends. We’ll be playing indoor soccer, hitting in the batting cages, tumbling in the gymnastics area, and so much more! We’ll also be watching a preview of the Summer 2014 Camp Video Yearbook. At full length it is a 45-minute recap of all of the incredible moments that we shared together last summer. Towards the end of the event we’ll gather together to for a light dinner and to celebrate our many friends who have birthdays this and next week. Because of our commitment to being an allergy-friendly summer camp everything we serve will be peanut and tree nut free, and we’ll offer gluten free, dairy free and egg free alternatives at this event.

We hope to see you there!
In anticipation of this weekend’s event it appears that the reunions have already started. A few weekend ago two of our Kenwood sophomore campers got together to spend a day in the city. This past weekend a group of our Evergreen inters and juniors had a getaway weekend with their dads at Great Wolf Lodge. We love seeing camp friends get together during the non-summer months!
We were also sent this video of a surprise camp friend gathering from this past weekend. A group of our Evergreen sophomores were hanging out together in New York City, and their counselor Julia showed up to surprise them. As you can see, they were totally caught off guard, and beyond excited to see her. This short clip gives you a sense of the positive, nurturing relationships that our counselors develop with their campers each summer.
When I asked her if I could share this video Julia responded:
I couldn’t agree more. That’s what our summer camp in New Hampshire is all about!
