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.

Two full days each week are spent at the barn and the other three days are spent enjoying typical activities at camp in the same Equestrian group. During “Barn” days, campers are divided into two groups based on ability and/or age level. Those groups each cycle through a series of equestrian activities including two riding lessons, vaulting, and horse care. On Barn days, campers wear long pants. We provide boots and helmets, but campers may bring their own. On Friday mornings campers choose activities on their own for the first half of the day to enjoy something the may have missed out on or really enjoyed during the week.

Space is limited. Sign up in advance during enrollment or by contacting our office.
