Santa Cruz Day Camp


Kennolyn offers a combination of structured and unstructured play throughout a session. To allow participation in as many areas as possible, groups rotate activities on a  Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday schedule. Campers also have time to choose what they are interested in during Lunch “Free Play” and Friday morning “Free Choice”. Two-week sessions have additional opportunities for Free Choice. Our K-1 grade group stays together during “Free Play” and “Free Choice” time to provide needed supervision.

The Equestrian Specialty is designed for campers who are learning to ride and still want a traditional Day Camp experience.

One group of 12 campers spends the session together in the Equestrian group. Friends not in the Equestrian Speciality will not together.

One to two days each week are spent at the barn while other days are spent enjoying typical activities at camp. During “Barn Days”, the group is divided in half based on ability and/or age for equestrian activities including two riding lessons, vaulting, and horse care.  On Friday mornings campers choose activities on their own for the first half of the day to enjoy activities they may have missed or favorites they wanted to do again.

Space is limited. All enrollment and cancellation policies apply. Sign up in advance during enrollment or by contacting our office.
