UCLA's Unicamp provides underserved children from the inner city an opportunity to see a life outside of their environment. They are part of bonding activities with their peers, are given positive role models and are able to participate in outdoor activities not available to them in their own neighborhoods. The interaction between UCLA students and these children provides a safe zone for them to be vulnerable and talk about their experiences. Unicamp is also an amazing opportunity for UCLA students to volunteer and grow as individuals.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The campers being open with counselors and coming back again because they enjoyed the experience so much. Hopefully their repeated attendance will enable them to move beyond their socioeconomic limitations.
