Review for Camp Unalayee Association, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a past camper, staff member, volunteer, board member and now the mother of a camper! It's where my environmental ethic was formed. There is no better place to send your kids--they get nature, self-confidence, new skills, new friends, new muscles and an appreciation of life away from screens! The staff is uniformly committed and caring; the location stunning, the transformations awesome. I can't recommend it more highly. If we want to keep wilderness as part of our heritage, we need to have kids value it, and Camp Unalayee does the best job of instilling love of wilderness I have ever seen.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My son is now showing much more interest in hiking, more independence in general, and less interest in video games as a result of his camp experience.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make more scholarships available so more people can afford to send their kids there.

Role:  Client Served & When I was a camper, I learned the value of wilderness.
