Let's go to camp
Plan your kids' summer

02/21/13



2/21/2013

Technically speaking, I grew up in Massachusetts. But most of the actual “growing up” that I did was right here in New Hampshire. For eight summers, five as a camper and three as a counselor, the banks of Eagle Pond in the shadow of Mount Kearsarge were my home. Camp Kenwood in Wilmot was more than sports and crafts. It was about meaningful friendships that have lasted into adulthood.
Whether your little camper is looking for two weeks in the woods or a week to explore his or her artistic side, there is a camp out there for them. Sign-ups start now, so find the day (or overnight) camp to suit your kid so she can start dreaming of summer.
