Visit & Connect with Us

Some of our planned events have been rescheduled and more times to visit camp will be offered soon. In the meantime, we encourage you to sign up for a Virtual Camp Gathering or check one of our many online resources. Or contact us to arrange a call or visit for your family.


Virtual Camp Gatherings

The long time tradition of camp families opening their homes to both new and enrolled campers is moving online. Join us for a one hour camp chat to hear why we believe children need camp now more than ever, ask questions, get tips on how to prepare for summer, and feel a sense of community. Meeting info is sent out once you have RSVP’d.

  • Tuesday March 31 from 12-1pm
  • Wednesday April 8 from 3-4pm
  • Thursday April 16 from 8-9pm


Open Houses

Typically, there is no better way to decide if Kennolyn is right for your camper than to walk around, meet us in person, and get a feel for our program. Our Santa Cruz Mountains camps are accessible year round – and with 450 acres of private redwoods, there’s a lot to see. Huntington Lake is one of the hidden jems of the Sierras just south of Yosemite. While it’s under snow in winter, it is a perfect spot for summer adventure! We would love to meet you and your family and show you why Kennolyn is a camper’s paradise. Please RVSP and we will send a confirmation a few days ahead of time to double check you can still make it.

Our camp is situated in the town of Lakeshore with excellent camping options, some vacation rentals, and a couple of lakeside resorts. More lodging options are available in nearby Shaver Lake.
