The program has been designed for campers aged 10-16. For 2019, enrollment is limited to 64 campers to promote a close knit community, flexible activity choices, and close counselor guidance. Campers build relationships, grow more independent, and can slow down or ramp up as they choose. Our counselors and staff are recruited for their skills but more importantly for their ability to build positive relationships with the campers. Our goal is that every staff member know every camper by name. Each counselor supervises a group of 6-8 campers. Campers arrive and depart at Kennolyn Camps, Huntington Lake by chartered bus or on flights to Fresno International Airport.
