A Message From Crafts Woodsey

I can't believe this wonderful thing is starting earlier this year... I'm super excited to be volunteering for UCLA UniCamp again! I just keep gravitating back towards it because I am absolutely enamored with UniCamp's mission, purpose, message, and endless opportunities for under-served youth in the Los Angeles community and beyond.

This year, I'm part of leadership for Mental Wellness and Fortitude! We will be learning, educating, and providing mental health resources. It's an issue that's currently being brought up in my generation and youth today. Our session is very important because we will be working with LGBTQ youth, who are underrepresented in camp, have to confront mental health stigma AND discrimination against their identities. Our program is important to me because I've struggled with my own mental health in my years growing up, at UCLA, and even now, and I can say that some of it was attributed by my experience in claiming my self-identity. I hope to provide a safe space and a loving, supportive community, and let them know that they're never alone.

YOU can take part in my adventure! As I prepare and plan for this upcoming camp season, I would greatly appreciate YOUR continued help and support in reaching my fundraising goal - all of your donations cover the costs in bringing kids up to camp for a week so it's little to no cost to them, and it also subsidizes the materials and training needed to set up an enriching experience for them!

Each and every one of us have a story to tell, and we all have different experiences from one another. I haven't met them yet, but I want my volunteers and campers to be able to live like a kid - to have fun like singing songs and playing games. Along with the fun, I hope to inspire my volunteers and campers with programs in helping them foster their leadership skills and strive for a future that awaits them. Giving this opportunity and experience to them means the world to me.

16th Annual UCLA UniCamp Camp-A-Thon!

About This Campaign

In the midst of our UCLA UniCamp Student Volunteer's nearly 100 hours of training, they somehow manage to find time to fundraise at least $500 each with fellow UCLA UniCamp Student Volunteers. Please join us in sponsoring these students. All proceeds from this event go towards sending under-served youth to camp this summer. The student’s goal this year is to raise $250,000. This will help UCLA UniCamp give over 1,200 campers a summer camping experience. Join us in this great cause. UCLA UniCamp is a tradition at UCLA that is entering its 80th summer of camp. Every year there are hundreds of underserved children that may not be dreaming of a bright future. Help us provide these kids with the tools to change their stars and give them the chance to dream big and succeed. Thank you in advance for your interest and your generosity!
