Campers can participate in one of our three Older Camper Programs listed below.

Participants are taught program specific skills and asked to take more leadership responsibilities around the campsite.

Older Camper Programs (ages 15-17)


Core Lessons in Mind & Body is an Older Camper Program that offers an opportunity for Older Campers to learn about the fundamentals and safety of rock climbing as a platform to experience self-growth. It focuses around the 5 pillars of rock climbing to teach campers responsibility, trust, and mindfulness. Along with learning how to climb, campers will exercise new skills in leadership and communication as they teach the basics of climbing to younger campers at the Alpine Tower. The CLIMB program culminates with an off-site, outdoor climb which allows them to fully appreciate and utilize everything they have learned through the program.


UniCorps is an Older Camper Program that focuses on leadership and service learning. Campers will engage in community service projects that will improve upon the natural beauty and aesthetic of the UniCamp campsite. Campers who complete this program earn 30 hours of community service towards their high school graduation requirement. Led by UCLA students and alumni, UniCorps provides the perfect opportunity for your child to learn how to get to college from those who have already made it.


Wilderness Adventures in Leadership and Learning is an Older Camper Program that takes Older Campers on a multi-day overnight 28 mile backpacking trip in the San Gorgonio Mountains. Campers learn about outdoor survival skills, human impact on the environment, and the value of teamwork and perseverance. Backpacking specific-equipment will be provided for campers by UniCamp.
