Camp Kern has been blessed with some wonderful collaborative program partners. We would like to specifically thank and recognize the following organizations for their efforts to make Camp Kern’s programs some of the best in camping:
Lucasfilm, LTD. – Through a creative collaboration beginning in 2009, Camp Kern and Lucasfilm have worked together to create an outstanding themed camp resource surrounding their animated series on Cartoon Network, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. This resource has resulted in hundreds of camps and thousands of children participating in themed programming hosted at www.clonewarscamp.com. We look forward to many more years of great work together. May the Force be with you!
Penguin Publishing – Bringing to life the Rangers Apprentice and Brotherband book series has been a true pleasure! Penguin Publishing, and specifically author John Flanagan have been a thrill to work with. Many games and themed activities are hosted online on a resource kit hosted at www.rangersapprentice.com/camps/. Many budding Rangers and newly-formed Brotherbands have passed through camp, and Araulen is well served by them all!
Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TNT) – A collaboration with Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. was begun through the truly epic Falling Skies games at Camp Kern. This television show, which is based on an alien invasion and resulting human resistance, has been a wonderful way to spice up a “normal” campout evening for Camp Kern campers. Check out the photos from camp here, and check out the official Falling Skies website at www.fallingskies.com.
