Program Description: 

Camp Unalayee has been taking kids on outdoor adventures since 1949. Located in Northern California’s Trinity Alps Wilderness - the perfect location to provide a co-ed wilderness backpacking summer camp to youth ages 10-17. While at camp possible activities include archery, crafts, swimming, boating, arts, rock-climbing, music, and much more. Each base-camp session also includes multi-day backpacking trips. The hikes are planned to be compatible with campers’ age, interests and abilities.

As a non-profit, Unalayee takes great pride in welcoming children from all walks of life. Unalayee provides assistance to many of its campers, allowing kids from all income levels to have a wilderness summer camp experience. Unalayee’s programs create a supportive community where friendship and cooperation flourish. Working together, campers learn new skills, build self-confidence and develop self-sufficiency, all while having a ton of fun and learning to respect the natural world.

We also offer extended 11-day backpacking programs for campers who want to explore more backcountry and learn survival skills, leadership training for motivated 16 and 17 year olds, and a family program for all ages.
