  • Private rooms with TV’s available for campers who need to stay overnight
  • Nurses dispense medications after meals through CampMeds, a safe and efficient pre-packaged medication system, for any campers who need daily medication

Dining Room

At Camp Kennybrook, we strive to provide well-balanced meals and our counselors are always encouraging campers to make healthy choices. Our campers enjoy their time dining together and it’s often an extremely spirited environment. Campers can be heard singing and cheering throughout all meals.

Features of our dining room include:

  • The entire camp eats together in our modern, airy dining room where we are served by waiters and waitresses
  • Campers and counselors sit by bunk
  • The varied kid-friendly menu is prepared by certified dietitians who work for universities during the winter
  • We are a 100% nut-free camp and we can accommodate all dietary needs such as gluten-free, dairy-free, kosher, vegan, and vegetarian diets
  • We understand that everyone is not going to enjoy every meal, which is why alternative meal options are always available
  • Cereal, bagels, scrambled eggs, fruit, and oatmeal are always available at breakfast, in addition to daily rotating items such as pancakes, waffles, French toast, and assorted pastries
  • Fresh salad bar, soup, and pasta are available at every lunch and dinner in addition to the main meal which rotates daily

Canteen

  • The canteen is one of the most popular spots on camp for both campers and staff with great snacks, drinks, foosball tables, indoor and outdoor seating, and camp memorabilia covering the walls
  • All campers have a mid-afternoon snack at the canteen. Snacks switch off from chips to ice cream to candy, and there is always a healthy fruit option available.
  • Older campers socialize here every night after evening activities while enjoying snacks and drinks together
