About Kennolyn Camps
Kennolyn has been family owned and operated since 1946 as a private, independent summer camp for boys and girls. Campers experience a sense of belonging, are given the chance to be independent, discover new skills, and meet wonderful friends and role models. We offer one collection of camps with robust programs designed to engage and challenge your child year after year while helping them develop the skills they will need for the rest of their life. Join us at one of our overnight camp locations on Huntington Lake or in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Amazing Camp Staff
Our counselors and staff come from across the United States and the globe to share their culture, favorite activities, and enthusiasm. The international exchange is an incredible way for children to begin to learn about new cultures and all the common values we share. With the many specialized activities, staff are recruited for their skills but more importantly for their ability to build positive relationships with the campers. Our Registered Nurses and on-call doctors provide campers an extra layer of support physically and emotionally. Our staff provide the fun and engagement campers crave and the supervision parents expect. Our staff know every camper by name and what makes them tick to facilitate relationships and independence.
