About Kennolyn Camps

Kennolyn Camps is a place for children to learn and grow. We believe that a positive camp community is one that acknowledges and embraces diverse identities. We work to ensure that everyone regardless of age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, nationality, religion, physical ability, or socioeconomic status has the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. By practicing intentional kindness, our camp culture seeks to appreciate the value that each camper and staff member brings to Kennolyn.
Since 1946, Kennolyn has been a family owned camp where kids build lifelong friendships, unplug from technology, and explore the world around them. We focus on fostering emotional, social and physical growth in each camper, while embracing the power of fun, play and adventure.
