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 camp is accessible year round – and with 450 acres of private redwoods, there’s a lot to see.  Please contact us and we’d be happy to schedule an individual tour if the list of dates below don’t work for you. We encourage you to RSVP for any of our events but also understand family plans change if you need to cancel. We will send a confirmation a few days ahead of time to double check you can still make it.
