Nestled in the Catskill Mountains, 90 minutes North of New York City, we are a family owned, family run, co-ed, overnight camp where literally everyone knows every body. Approximately 300 campers, ranging from ages 6-16, and 125 staff members call Kennybrook their second home each summer. Our staff is made up of long-term adult educators and college-age leaders, and many of our counselors are former Kennybrook campers. Our staff members take the time to get to know every camper in order to help them have the best possible camp experience, and our engaged directors are always available to speak to parents throughout the summer. We’ve created such a special place at Kennybrook that once people come, they never want to leave! We are proud to share that we have over an 85% camper return rate each summer.
