2020 Virtual Session Dates
July 13-17 (Session A) July 20-24 (Session B) July 27-31 (Session C)
- August 3-7 (Session D) New!

Activities will be scheduled from 10am-5pm daily — attend as much or as little as you’d like! The schedule and activities are different for each week, but the general schedule is:
11am: Cabin time — Do activities and hang out with other campers your same age
Noon: Lunch break
1pm: Rotation 1 — Choose among a few activities to attend. Activities are different each day
2pm: Rotation 2
3pm: Rotation 3
4pm: Cabin time (30min)
And at the end of each week is a talent show!
The classic camp age group is ages 10-14. A separate leadership and service learning option — our Older Camper Program — is available during these same dates for campers ages 15-17.
Content will be over Zoom and run by trained UCLA Student Volunteers.
Camp-In-A-Box is a box with camp activities like science experiments and craft projects that campers ages 9+ can do with little supervision. Activities provide plenty of ways to create their own in-home camp experience.
Woodsey Explorer (Download)
Like a National Parks “Junior Ranger” book, Woodsey Explorer is a short booklet with activities that focus on supporting participants’ mental health and help them connect with the environment around them. The book is made for campers 5 years and older, with the difficulty of activities progressing with age. When you finish, submit your work and you’ll get an official Woodsey Explorer badge and certificate! Click here to download the activity book.
Virtual UniCamp costs $10 per child. We don’t want cost to be a barrier for anybody, so if that doesn’t work for you, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount.
Costs for the other programs are still being determined. Woodsey Explorer will be available as a free PDF download.

What if I already signed up for in-person camp? You should have received an email with refund information. Email email@example.com. Note that you will need to register again to participate in Virtual UniCamp.
What do I need to participate? Your camper(s) will need access to a Zoom-capable device: a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a camera and internet access. If materials are needed for some activities, we’ll post a list so you can buy what you want at your local grocery store.
