2016 September/October Newsletter

Full Camp!And just like that the Camp Unalayee summer has come to an end. It was a truly amazing summer. We were lucky enough to have 326 fantastic campers, 93 fun family campers, 58 fabulous counselors, and many faithful volunteers join us between June and September.  We are so lucky to have all of you as part of our Unalayee family.

79 campers were lucky enough to go on the trail this summer – definitely a record for Camp UnalSuccess!ayee.  We had five Trail Tribes, four Summit to Summit programs, and one 28-day Women’s Walkabout – way to get out there and REALLY get to know the wilderness!

We were also very lucky this summer to have a nearly fire and smoke free wilderness! It was very nice to be back to “normal” when it comes to our snow pack. The Trinity Alps really were an especially beautiful place to be this summer.

We hope that you are feeling as lucky to have been part of the Unalayee Summer as we are, and hope that you will help us reminisce and review this fall.

Look What the Work Crew Did!

Rock Wall RebuildWe had an awesome work crew this summer which helped us do some much needed remodeling in the Mosquito Lake basin – we redid and expanded platform tent 4 (see photo below), redid the floor on platform tent 1, rebuilt the rock wall (see photo to the left), and put in a new shower!
