University Camps
September 14, 2010

UniCamp has been the defining experience of my entire 4 years at UCLA. This organization is truly dedicated to servicing the underserved youth of LA. Not only does this organization try to help these kids realize their potential, the camp is run in such a fashion that judgment is not passed upon the campers, despite the stereotypes that many of these campers are "troubled." Furthermore, the programs are all outcome based and are meant to teach a lesson. Not only is it a great week to experience nature, but also for the campers to learn about themselves.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

one of my campers, Jackie "Spidey" Hernandez. Over the course of a year, she grew so much, credits camp for her doing better in school, and became such a better leader. She is now taking necessary steps to go to college because she wants to be a counselor

More feedback

seeing old campers grow and coming back after a year.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

start a sailing program, build more cabins, fix the swimming pool, service many more children
