UCLA UniCamp is the official philanthropy of the Students of UCLA. UniCamp is an independently funded non-profit that connects UCLA with the community. Each year, UCLA UniCamp inspires over 1,200 children from urban communities to envision brighter futures by sending them, along with 450 student volunteers, to its residential outdoor summer camp. Because of UniCamp, both volunteers and campers have a chance to: Lead, Play, Learn.
"Children have a right to a childhood filled with beauty, joy, adventure, and companionship. They will grow if the soil they are nurtured in is rich with experience, love and good examples." Alan Dyer "A Sense of Adventure"
Classic UniCamp serves campers ages 10 - 14 and is our most traditional residential camp program. Campers have the opportunity to explore the outdoors and participate in traditional camp programs such as: archery, arts & crafts, or rec. and also have the chance to push themselves with programs such as: the alpine climbing tower, sailing, or mountain biking. In addition to the traditional camp experience, each Classic UniCamp session partners with a Los Angeles area nonprofit or after-school program to address a specific social initiative. Throughout each camp session there will be special programs to address that week’s initiative.Learn more →
Speciality camps are available for campers ages 15 - 17 and are designed to push campers out of their comfort zone and challenge them to become leaders within UniCamp. Participants are taught program specific skills and asked to take more leadership responsibilities around the campsite.Learn more →
