Santa Cruz Overnight Camp


Our Adventure campers (6th grade and up) are born with that ‘wild’ streak! They look for new adventures every day and at camp we help them share that passion with like-minded campers, under the watchful eye of our experienced trip leaders. Adventure campers participate in some regular activities each day at camp, but also have the chance to experience some amazing off site trips and on site adventures.

2020 Tentative Adventure Camp Schedule

(Adventure Specialty is offered during Session 4, 2020)

(Remember, Adventure Campers are at “base camp” in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Most of these adventures are 3-4 hours long and take place in and around Santa Cruz.

Activity 1: Ropes Course

Explore our own Hilltop Ropes Course. Build team skills that will help on our upcoming adventures.

Activity 2: Surfing

We have worked with the professional surf instructors at Club Ed for 30 years. After some safety instruction on the beach, we’ll head out into the waves with the qualified instructors and lifeguards.

Activity 3: Orienteering/Geo Caching

An awesome onsite adventure, Adventure Campers and their counselors will use modern and traditional navigation skills to find their way around the forest for fun and excitement.  A big hit in 2018, we are glad to bring this activity back again for 2019.

Activity 4-5: Overnight White Water Rafting

Pack and depart for a 2 night rafting trip.  Spend a full day white water rafting on the American River followed by an overnight camp out. On the last day day of the trip campers will spend a few hours rafting before heading back to Kennolyn.  This will be a highlight for most Adventure Campers.

Activity 6: Segway Tour

We join our friends at Segway Santa Cruz for a tour along West Cliff to the Santa Cruz Lighthouse and Natural Bridges.
