Camp Unalayee is a wilderness summer camp situated on 400 private acres in the heart of Northern California’s Trinity Alps Wilderness. At 6,400’, Camp is nestled in a beautiful, alpine lake basin, surrounded by rugged peaks and saw-tooth ridges. Campers live in small groups along our year-round creek, or by meadows in the woods near the lake.
Dozens of other jewel-like lakes and clear-flowing streams are within easy hiking distance of the Camp basin, providing destinations for day-hikes, swimming, fishing and backpacking.
While our location provides seclusion and intimacy with nature, Camp’s gated, private road provides easy access to the highway and needed services. The combination of isolation and access allows Camp to make no compromises in safety and security while providing an unparalleled wilderness summer camp experience.
Camp Unalayee offers children a unique opportunity to live simply with nature. In this enriching environment, campers discover themselves, explore their limits and learn what truly matters.
