Unalayee has been taking kids on outdoor adventures since 1949. Located in Northern California’s Trinity Alps, we are a non-profit, co-ed wilderness summer camp that provides meaningful outdoor experiences for children ages 10-17. Kids in our summer camp programs learn about themselves as they learn to live in the wilderness. Our program actively teaches campers confidence, compassion, community and conservation. The rugged terrain of the Trinity Alps provides a challenging and dramatic backdrop for wilderness adventure.
In base camp, there are a plethora of activities to choose from each day including: archery, crafts, swimming, boating, arts, rock-climbing, music, and much more. Each base-camp session also includes multi-day backpacking trips; the 15-day program includes two backcountry trips, one for 2-nights and another for 3-nights. The 10-day program includes one backcountry trip of two nights. Unalayee’s base camp program creates a supportive community where friendship and cooperation flourish. Working together, campers learn new skills, build self-confidence and develop self-sufficiency, all while exploring a spectacular wilderness setting.
Extended 11-day backpacking programs, leadership training, and family programs are also available.
