Located in Northern California in the beautiful Trinity Alps wilderness, Camp U provides a unique outdoors experience during two-week sessions where kids completely disconnect from iPods, video games and the internet and learn to connect with nature and the surrounding wilderness. A one-week family session is also offered at the end of August. For 57 years, the camp has provided kids with self-esteem, social values and a love for the environment. The camp is accredited by the American Camping Association. To find more information on Camp Unalayee, visit: http://www.gocampu.org.
