A Message From SUNSHINE Woodsey

This will be my fourth year being a part of UCLA's longest running tradition and official non-profit organization, UniCamp! I will be a Head Counselor as part of the Outdoor Environmental Education Session's LSHIP team!

As volunteer camp counselors, we take children to summer camp for a week at Camp River Glen, near Big Bear in the San Bernardino Mountains, who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to do so. For this to happen, each counselor fundraises $450 to subsidize the cost of attendance for one camper, which is about $600.

Once again, I am hoping to be able to support the campers to the best of my ability and to provide the best experience possible. We want to create a simultaneously supportive and fun environment where campers are able to express themselves and grow to be stronger individuals. I cannot wait to seethe campers' smiles, hear their laughter, and watch them just be kids.

The following is a reflection on my first UniCamp session in 2016, "It was one of the most exhausting things I've ever done in my life: physically, mentally, and emotionally. A week with the most amazing people from my campers, Co's, LSHIP, all of my fellow Woodseys,...and nature brought so many memories that will last a lifetime. The campers taught me so much and I hope that I made at least a fraction of the imprint on them that they've left on me.I'd like to thank everyone who made this possible and can't wait for next year!"

Thank you so much in advance!

17th 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 $450 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 $150,000. This will help UCLA UniCamp give over 1,000 campers a summer camping experience. Join us in this great cause. UCLA UniCamp is a tradition at UCLA that is entering its 83rd 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!
