Some changes may have been made to programs due to COVID. Click here for the most recent updates. 


The U-Nah-Li-Ya Excursion Trip Experience is more than your normal camping getaway; our specially trained wilderness counselors lead campers on the adventures of a lifetime. They will push themselves further than they imagined, build lifelong friendships, and experience the outdoors like never before. Excursion Trips cover more than breathtaking views and rare wildlife observation, they are personal journeys that bring out the best each camper has to offer. Teen develop resilience, strong moral character, and an appreciation for the natural world on these once in a lifetime trips!

It is recommended but not required that campers have prior wilderness camping experience. These two-week camps are specialized adventure programs that fill up fast! 

All campers on Excursion Trips must have completed a physical performed by
a physician within 12 months prior to their trip.

A copy of the completed physical form should be e mailed to camp.office@greenbayymca.org.
