This is a role perfect for someone who has worked at a camp before or is interested in a career working with kids. Cabin counselors are responsible for the physical and emotional well being of the campers in their cabin. From bedtime routines, conflict resolution and special celebrations- these counselors do it all! While some of your day may be instructing activities, your main role is to be a primary caregiver for your group of kiddos.
Activity counselors have specific activity area responsibilities during each activity day. This is a perfect role for a freshman counselor, first time staff member or an individual with a specific skill.
These positions include:
Don’t see your specialty on this list? Don’t worry we have over 40 activities. Submit your application and our staff can talk to you in detail about what role might suit you best.
Each activity area in camp needs someone with experience to lead the staff and program. If you have been at a camp before or are seeking a degree in a specific program area this role is a great option.
Support staff are what make Kennolyn possible!

Cabin Counselor/Activity Instructor
At the lake, our program is small enough to be able to enjoy both the opportunity to live in a cabin group with one other counselor and as many as 8 campers and the diversity of teaching the many different activities we offer. As a cabin counselor, you have the responsibility of making sure the physical and emotional needs of each or your campers are being met each day. From personal hygiene, health and safety, bedtime and morning routines and camper relationship dynamics, you get to do it all for the one week your campers are under your care. After breakfast and cabin clean up, you move to your area(s) of expertise and enjoy the opportunity to share your skills with the campers that have signed up for your activities. Because we are on Huntington Lake, the majority of our activities are offered on the waterfront, but don’t forget we’re also located in California’s Sierra Mountain Range so camping, outdoor living skills and hiking are also an important part of our summer program. Just before dinner, you move back to your cabin counselor role and see to the rest of the afternoon and evening programs with your cabin group before you put them to bed.

Group counselors are paired with a partner and look after 12-20 campers each session. They are responsible for the physical and emotional well-being of the campers in their group and lead some activities (sports, target sports, fort building) with their partner. They assist Activity Counselors in other specialized activities (climbing, crafts, pool, and more) for the remaining part of the day.
Activity Counselors specialize and lead a specific activity each day. Camper “Free Play” during lunch offers Activity Counselors a way to connect with campers outside their usual activity. They also help lead our afternoon event on Fridays where they transform into fun characters complete with costumes to wrap up the week. These positions include:
