General Resources

We recommend a couple of books written and published by respected authors who are not camp operators but are respected experts in the wider field of child development. You will see that they all agree about the value of the camp experience.

Homesick & Happy – How Time Away from Parents Can Help a Child Grow by Michael Thompson, PHD.

Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder by Richard Louv. Camp at Kennolyn is done outside (with comfortable inside areas for sleeping and gathering.) This book offers compelling evidence that being outdoors helps kids grow up happy and healthy.

Email our Camps Director, Andrew Townsend and set up a time to discuss any aspect of your child’s Kennolyn experience. Andrew has been at Kennolyn since 1985. He met his wife here, raised 3 kids here and has spoken to groups across the country about the power of the camp experience. He has served as President of 2 camp associations and believes that there is a camp for every child. There is no better person for you to discuss your concerns or ask questions about any of our camp programs.
