Huntington Lake, CA | Grades 5-11

Overnight Camp

Our traditional overnight camps have been cancelled for 2020. Please visit here for day and overnight camps available to those who live and/or work in Santa Cruz County.

Ready to plan for summer 2021? Read on. Kennolyn Camps Huntington Lake is a small, close knit community where boys and girls grades 5-11 thrive with flexible activity choices and close counselor guidance. Our staff know every camper by name and what makes them tick to facilitate relationships and independence. Our campers develop lifelong emotional and social skills, are challenged to learn new things, and most of all have fun.

Huntington Lake is 45 miles south of Yosemite Valley as the crow flies in the heart of the Sierra National Forest. Our location is truly one of the best kept secrets in California. The program is led by an experienced management team, the summer climate is ideal, and we have unlimited access to the sparkling waters of Huntington Lake and miles of trails right from our back door.

To encourage campers to try new things and allow the cabin group to bond, activities are scheduled as a group the first two days of camp. For the rest of the session, campers choose their own activities each day. They love the flexibility to slow down, ramp it up, or dive deep as they choose. Group activities are sprinkled in throughout the session to build and maintain relationships in the cabin like the Outpost Overnight campout, Color Games, Sunrise Skiing, Campfires and other fun Evening Events.


Huntington Lake is the hidden gem of the Sierra Nevada range – we take full advantage of this beautiful body of water and surrounding wilderness.


Complimentary charter bus service is included from the LA, Fresno, and the SF Bay Area. We also provide a shuttle service from Fresno International Airport making camp easily accessible from across California and many cities across the West. By the time campers arrive, they’ve already made friends and learned a few camp songs (if they don’t know them already).

Our counselors and staff come from across the United States and the globe to share their culture, favorite activities, and enthusiasm. With the many specialized activities, staff are recruited for their skills but more importantly for their ability to build positive relationships with the campers. Each counselor supervises a group of 6-8 campers.

We hope you join us for an unforgettable summer of fun and friendships.
