About

Welcome to our Camping Unlimited - Camp Krem Programs!

Since 1957 Camping Unlimited has offered exciting weekend recreational opportunities and summer camp for children and adults with disabilities. Participants with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and other challenges enjoy weekend day trips and overnight adventures with the help of our wonderful Volunteers. We explore beautiful state parks, attend sporting events, theatrical productions, visit museums, community fairs, festivals and more. A favorite adventure is heading to the Santa Cruz Mountains to stay at beautiful Camp Krem. We explore the redwoods hiking through nature trails, create with arts n'crafts, dance, perform with karaoke, talent shows and have magical campfires, We also garden, cook, play sports, games and much more. We also celebrate at Camp Krem when we gather for pre-Thanksgiving, Christmas party overnights and Spring breaks! Camping Unlimited programs also include short and extended travel camps to Lake Tahoe and in the past have vacationed in Hawaii and cruised to Mexico!
