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

Rating: 5 stars  

Many of my best experiences happened with Camp U. But besides my selfish interests it does great things for underprivileged kids. Nature is the best medicine and Unalayee is the best place for kids to get it.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I went as a kid and couldn't stop going back. Then I worked there because I had to go back! Camp Unalayee does great things for kids, teaching them confidence, self-sufficiency, social interaction, and about the beauty of the wilderness.

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

Help the director get more of his fundraising and publicity goals met.

Role:  Volunteer & I was a camper and camp counselor.
