Santa Cruz Day Camp

Activities

Kennolyn offers a wide range of fun, interesting activities to keep our campers engaged and active throughout the day. To allow participation in as many areas as possible, groups rotate activities with a Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday schedule.

During Lunch and Friday mornings, campers have an opportunity for “Free Choice” activities to focus on what they really like or may not have been scheduled. Two week sessions have additional opportunities for Free Choice. Our K-1 grade group stays together during “Free Choice” time to provide needed supervision. Activities for ALL campers include:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Archery
  • Basketball
  • Fort Building
  • Ga-Ga Ball
  • Happy Shiny Fun Ball
  • Hiking
  • Hockey
  • Nine Square in the Air
  • Outdoor Adventure
  • Outdoor Cooking
  • Ping Pong
  • Pond Play
  • Soccer
  • Swimming
  • Volleyball

As campers grow through the program physically and developmentally there are new activities they become eligible for summer after summer. Some of these new activities may replace others. Campers grades 3-7 interested in horseback riding may want to sign up for our Equestrian Specialty.

Equestrian Specialty

 

Fast Facts
-Beginning riding levels
-12 campers per session (Session 1 almost full)
-Eligible grades: 3-7
-Fee: $200 for 1 week or $400 for 2-week session (in addition to camp tuition)

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 with mixed grades 3-7 spends the session together. Please carefully consider this larger grade range when deciding.  Two full days each week are spent at the barn and the other three days are spent enjoying typical activities at camp.

During Equestrian 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 horsemanship. On these days, campers wear long pants. We provide boots and helmets, but campers may bring their own.

These campers still get to do some of the typical Day Camp group activities on the other days, and on Friday mornings campers choose activities on their own for the first half of the day. This allows grades 3-4 to try Climbing and grades 5-7 to try High Ropes or other activities they may have missed out on during the week.

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