Hello KEEN Families and Campers!
Remember how much fun it is to laugh with friends, be curious, and try something new? Remember what it is like to be confident and use your courage to step outside your comfort zone?
Well, now is your time to press PLAY on your KEEN year of fun and adventure!
As we plan for another exciting summer of camp, I am filled with anticipation and gratitude for the wonderful experiences that lie ahead! Our camps have always been places of growth, learning, and fun, but this year, we are especially focused on celebrating the richness and diversity that defines our community.
At KEEN, we believe that every child deserves a camp experience that not only nurtures their sense of adventure, but also embraces their unique background, interests, and aspirations.
We can’t wait for you to come to one (or more!) of our programs and camps to challenge yourself; chart your own map on a backcountry trek, journal the wildlife, plants, and stars, and explore other wonders of the outdoors. With a dozen programs and events to help you find the perfect match, it’s time to make memories that will last a lifetime.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all our camp families for entrusting us with the privilege of shaping the lives of their children. Together, we are building a community of strong, confident, and compassionate leaders who will make a positive impact on the world.
I invite you to explore our new website, where you'll find a treasure trove of information about the exciting opportunities that await. Feel free to reach out to me at any time with any questions - we are here to support you every step of the way.
Let’s Find Adventure. Together.
