75th Reunion-update as of 3/1/2021
Even though we plan to operate camp in 2021, we still feel there will be too many restrictions on travel and large gatherings for us to want to plan an in person reunion this Fall. We will continue to wait for a better time when we can all be together. Whether we celebrate 75 years, 76 years, or even 77 years of Kennolyn it will be better when we can celebrate the way we want to. Below are the details of our original plan which we will adapt and update as we move forward.
Join Kennolyn and The Max and Marion Caldwell Foundation as we have FUN and FUNdraise.Stay Fri and/or Sat night or simply stop by for one of the many events throughout the weekend.
All former STAFF and CAMPERS welcome! Bring your family. Enjoy fun activities, see old friends, relive awesome camp memories, enjoy campfire and all your favorite camp songs. Overnight registration and RSVP for meals and events will be open soon, check back and look at our social media for updates.
Overnight registration = $75 for the weekend. Accommodation is in bunk bed cabins. Bring a sleeping bag. Please note: We do not have enough room to offer family cabins. We plan to use the bunk bed cabins and divide guests into male and female cabins. If you are bringing children (and they are most welcome) they will stay with a parent in the gender appropriate cabin. If you are one parent bringing kids of different genders, we will have a small number of shared family cabins. All overnight guests will need pillows, sleeping bags, towels, etc.

Throughout the weekend, special events will be held for campers and staff from specific eras. If you would like to act as a host for one of these events, please let us know firstname.lastname@example.org. You can arrange anything you want to for your group during the weekend. Each event can be as simple as a gathering in the Lodge with coffee and old photos, or a hike, or special time at campfire. Ask for more information.
