“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” – African Proverb
Greetings! Camp Unalayee is searching for young girls interested in attending an all girls backpacking trip – what we like to call Girls Getaway! For 10-12 days, our tribe will hike through the mountains to beautiful lakes, up towering peaks, and camp by gorgeous rivers and meadows.
During our trip, we will have special activities to get in touch with ourselves, the nature surrounding us, and bond as a group. Although we want to get some good hiking and exploring in, we do not want the focus of the program to be on distance or speed. We will adjust our itinerary to fit our campers’ needs, and we will definitely have a few days of no hiking – just sun bathing and swimming in gorgeous lakes! And on those lay-over days, we plan to offer exciting day hikes for those who need a little more action!
We don’t want any girl to be afraid to sign up for Girl’s Getaway because they are nervous about the amount of hiking. If we want to hike all day, we’ll hike. If we want to nap in the sun and float in the water from sunrise to sunset, we’ll do just that.
We can’t give away all of the details – but will say that it will be a very fun, creative, sometimes challenging, magical, and empowering experience for everyone that comes along. We hope that this person is you!
“I liked Girls Getaway because it was a big challenge to overcome. It taught me that anything is possible if I set my mind to it! I got so strong from the trip physically and mentally. One thing I enjoyed was how we all worked together the whole time and lived like a family. Like any other family there were chores involved like filling the smiley or going on wood runs, but we also got to climb peaks, watch beautiful sunsets, and swim in mountains lakes. I learned a lot from the experience and I’m so glad I participated!” – Sophie, 2012
Dates: 2nd Session, July 15th – July 29th, 2015
2015 Program FULL. WAITLIST AVAILABLE.
Please contact Camp Unalayee to get in touch with one of the Girls Getaway Counselors: Mimi, Ruthie, or Naima for more information. We would love to speak with you about any questions you have and how we can make it possible for you to come!
