Camping Unlimited for the Developmentally Disabled
Director: Christina Krem
Camping Unlimited is a non-profit charitable organization that provides out-of-home respite to parents and caregivers of children and adults with developmental disabilities. Our single-day and overnight programs provide relief from the daily demands of care and supervision, while fostering independence, nurturing responsibility, developing competence and building lifelong friendships. We provide a warm and supportive atmosphere of planned permissiveness that encourages community, recreation, education, fun and adventure.

Five of my students were given the most precious gift they have ever received: full scholarships to attend Camp Krem. To say this experience was amazing for my students would be an understatement. Camp Krem was life-changing for them. They were in a place where they truly felt safe. It struck me that they never had a safe place to go in their own neighborhood. This was the first time in their lives where they could put their guards down and relax. My students were much more verbal during camp. In the six years I have known these students, never have I seen them talk as much as they did at camp. It was remarkable. They came out of their shells, and from day one it was clear that all of them felt like they were in a place where it was not only acceptable to be who they are, it was encouraged.
Everyone Deserves to Go to Camp
For many people, growing up with developmental disabilities means being excluded from the confidence-building experiences that other people have access to.
At Camp Krem, exceptional individuals are encouraged to learn, grow, and exercise their independence – a one-of-a-kind opportunity for these kids and adults.
In 2020, their beloved 63-year-old camp in Boulder Creek was destroyed by wildfire. They are currently working hard to rebuild, and in the meantime are operating at Camp Krem Yosemite, in Ahwahnee, so that they can continue to serve their campers and their families.
