CampersChoosing a summer camp is an important decision. We have been a leader in children’s camps since 1946, and are excited to welcome you to our family. We pride ourselves on being hip to the times, while maintaining traditional values. Kennolyn has left a lasting impression on tens of thousands of children and adults alike throughout the years, and our campers and staff return year after year…in fact many on staff are former campers!

Kennolyn CampersCamp is a great place to try new things, and we have a broad range of activities, both fun and instructional. Before summer starts, campers choose from over 40 activities (with instruction available for all levels), from Horseback Riding to Ropes & Climbing, from Watersports to Arts & Crafts to Archery, and everything in between. We also offer KC Select, our professional level activities that combine traditional camp experience with in-depth skill development in one area, including Trapeze, Surfing, Adventure Camp, Equestrian and Fencing.

 

RopesCampers in the poolOn Special Days, we switch things up from the regular schedule for even more adventures. Outpost camping (on our own redwood filled property), Beach Trips, Water Carnival, a day at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, 4th of July and Founder's Day are just some of our Special Day activities.

Each evening, we round out the day with an event for the entire camp. Campfire, Dance & Movie Night, Counselor Dress-Up and Scavenger Hunt are among the many evening activities.
