We work and play hard.

Feel free to look at our website and submit an online application if you meet the minimum requirements! (Eligible to work in the US.

At Kennolyn a counselor is a well rounded individual who can deal with anything they are given that day. We can train our staff to become lifeguards and archery instructors etc. but what we look for everyday is that person who really knows how to connect with others.
You may or may not have many of the skills listed below and that is ok. If you are a caring and compassionate person who is unafraid to be a positive role model for our campers then I definitely want to hear from you.
Long days start at 7:30am and end at 8:30pm when you put campers to bed and read to them until your free time begins at 9:45pm.
Meals and accomodation are included.
Lifelong friendships come for free.
