Camp Unalayee is a wilderness camp that provides diverse young people with transformational experiences and a place they can always call home. Our programs offer a balance of independence and responsibility that encourages young people to discover their identity, while developing self confidence, a habit of stewardship and deep respect for their community and the natural world.
Through a program defined by wilderness immersion, diversity, compassion, collaboration, creativity, and fun, our campers:
* Grow through personal challenge and cooperative living
* Develop respect for themselves and others
* Discover the confidence to stand up for what they believe
* Accomplish the unexpected
* Are transformed into stewards of wild places
Founded in 1949, Camp Unalayee provides meaningful outdoor experiences to 10 to 17 year-olds from every economic background. Our camp is located in the Trinity Alps Wilderness, an ideal location to engage youth to learn confidence, compassion, and the importance of both conserving natural resources and becoming a member of a community. Camp Unalayee has served over 200 children each summer for over 60 years. We attribute our success to an ongoing commitment by our staff, volunteers, and community to our founding values of diversity, community and respect for each other and the natural world.
Our Campership Fund, which is funded yearly by our generous members and our ongoing fundraising efforts, is the cornerstone for us accomplishing our goal of providing every child with the summer camp experience they deserve. Without the generous donations of our community and friends like you, we will not be able to continue this life changing work.
