Kennolyn Camps is a family owned and operated camp in the Santa Cruz mountains of California that has been in operation since 1946!
We are actively seeking staff including individuals to join our staff for summer 2017. Specialty roles include: ceramics coordinator, trapeze instructors, waterfront staff, and more!

Ceramics Coordinator: If you have experience teaching ceramics and working with kilns consider applying to be our ceramics coordinator. Work with a team of awesome staff to instruct hand and wheel pottery.

Equestrian Staff: We are actively seeking staff with equestrian experience. Knowledge of English and Western styles preferred.

Trapeze Instructor: If you have experience working a trapeze rig please let us know. You must have worked on a trapeze before and have experience working the board, pulling lines and be comfortable catching. Juggling, stunting and tumbling is a plus!

Trainee Cook: If you are looking forward to a career in culinary arts, we have a great education opportunity for you. Live and work at summer camp while learning to prepare wholesome food for up to 400 diners per meal. Invaluable experience. Earn while you learn. This cannot be the first time you've set foot in a commercial kitchen environment but if you have some kitchen education or experience, this could be an amazing opportunity.

Leadership opportunities: Like most summer camps, our talent pipeline is excellent. New leaders emerge from our staff and thrive in their new roles. But every so often, we find it beneficial to reach outside our inner circle and look for people with different experiences to join our leadership team. This year we have 3 positions to fill and we welcome applications from anyone with extensive camp experience. Our day and resident camps operate side by side on adjacent properties.

Assistant Director-Day Camp. Provide mature leadership alongside our Director. Be a part of all aspects of camp. This is a great opportunity to develop skills you have already learned through teaching, recreation leadership, outdoor education, or previous camp experience. Nothing is outside the scope of this job description! Parent contact, transportation coordination, food service supervision, camper behavior management, staff assignments, activity oversight, facility inspections you name it, you may need to do it. But think of all you can learn and all you can contribute. Dates of employment: June 4th 2017 to August 11th 2017. Housing can be offered but living on-site is not required.

Am I the right fit for Kennolyn?

We work and play hard. If you have an outstanding work ethic, love working with children, desire to make a difference in the lives of everyone at camp (including yourself) then you may be what we are looking for. Feel free to look at our website and submit an online application if you meet the minimum requirements! (Eligible to work in the US, have completed one year of College by June 2017, over the age of 18 by June 2017)

At Kennolyn a counselor or staff member is a well rounded individual who can deal with anything they are given that day. We 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 come in with a lot of previous experience in the camp realm, but if you are a caring and compassionate person who is unafraid to be a positive role model for our campers then we'd definitely like to hear from you.

Work days start at 7:15am 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 accommodation are included. Lifelong friendships come for free.
