WELCOME! Join us on another adventure with Camping Unlimited's Year-Round Weekend Programs 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. (See Youtube links below).
All volunteers must complete an application, provide references and will be background checked.
