A Message From Monica (Mini Mammoth) Aguilar Flores-Garcia

Hi everyone! My name is Monica Flores-Garcia (Mini Mammoth) and this summer I’ve been given an incredible opportunity to work with UCLA’s oldest student-run charity UniCamp! Since 1934, this organization has given children from all over Los Angeles the opportunity to enjoy and experience everything nature has to offer during a week-long summer camp in San Bernardino's Camp River Glen.

Unicamp is really fun! Campers will be able to participate in different activities such as singing, swimming, games, and arts and crafts each day. What makes UniCamp unique is that each week of camp focuses on a particular topic and skills. So, as they enjoy camp activities, kids are simultaneously taught tons of valuable skills they can utilize in their everyday lives. Skills on how to become incredible leaders or build strong relationships are just a few of Unicamp’s core lessons.

I’m proud to be a part of a session of the camp called AcademiCamp! This session aims to empower our campers through education by what’s known as SEL. SEL stands for Social Emotional Learning and is a key component in academic success. We’re taught that studying hard and attending class regularly is what will earn us good grades. This is partly true. Building a healthy mind and being able to have good interactions with others are also what help us thrive in a classroom. As a student who has struggled with mental health issues, being able to help kids learn lessons that have the potential to assist them both in and out of academics means the world to me. It's an honor to be able to play a part in teaching kids that their well being is a priority, that they’re special and important, and that they’re more than capable to achieve their goals. It's these lessons that can make all the difference in a child’s life.

UCLA’s UniCamp creates unforgettable experiences! Many of our campers come from underserved communities where there isn’t always the opportunity to go camping. If you can and would like to, you could help drastically reduce the cost of camp by donating to my fundraiser! This would allow more kids to be able to attend and enjoy UniCamp. I would greatly appreciate it and so would our campers! Any amount will help create an amazing week of camp and every amount will change a child’s life. Thank you!

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!
