Kennolyn offers a wide range of fun, interesting activities to hone our campers’ skills and keep them engaged and active throughout the day. To allow participation in as many areas as possible, we rotate activities with a Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday schedule.
All campers participate in Arts and Crafts, Outdoor Adventure, Outdoor Cooking, Archery, Swimming, Vaulting, Hiking, Basketball, Tennis, Volleyball, Animal Care and “Happy Shiny Fun Ball”.
Our youngest campers entering Preschool, Kindergarten and 1st grade have special time for breaks each morning and afternoon.
Campers going into 2nd grade add Low Ropes Course to their activity schedule and have the option for Horseback Riding and Trapeze.
As campers get older and are ready for more adventure, Day Camp has even more activities to try:
3rd and 4th Grade
Fencing, Climbing and Riflery
5th, 6th and 7th Grade
High Ropes and BMX
Senior High Ropes and Outdoor Survival
Special Note About Swimming
Please note, girls must wear one-piece bathing suits at camp. No bikinis or tankinis please.
Kennolyn Specialty Activities
Day Camp offers three exciting specialties as electives, each for a small additional fee. Each specialty activity replaces one regular daily activity, so campers enrolled in any of the specialties will miss one of their regularly scheduled group activities. Please note that unfortunately we are unable to take requests on which activity will be replaced each day.
Fly through the air with the greatest of ease (in a safety harness of course)! These classes, taught by circus professionals, build self-confidence as well as coordination and physical skills. Trapeze lessons are available all summer for campers going into the 2nd grade and above.
Horseback Riding Lessons
Horseback riding lessons are available two days per week in our very own riding ring. We offer introduction, beginning, and intermediate lessons for campers entering the 2nd grade and above.
Our property is surrounded by breathtaking redwood trees, and riding through them is a highlight for our campers. Trail riding is an option for campers who have already taken ring riding at Kennolyn. This activity runs two days per week and is for campers going into the 2nd grade and above.
Important Note: Long pants are required for all Horseback Riding activities. If your camper wears shorts to camp, please make sure to send a pair of long pants along for the day (counselors will allow time for campers to change clothes). We supply the boots and helmets!
