A Message From Charissa Nguyen

Hi everyone,

My name is Charissa (aka Sandal) and I'm back for a second year with UCLA UniCamp! As a volunteer I've trained over 75 hours to become counselors to the underserved youth of Los Angeles at a week-long camp this upcoming summer.

My week of camp is called AcademiCamp. AcademiCamp is a hybrid of an academic day camp and residential summer camp. Our initiative is focused on teaching Social Emotional Learning skills to our campers by incorporating SEL pillars into our camp programs and activities. The session is part of the seven-week Mann Middle School UCLA Summer Institute program focusing on addressing the summer learning loss at Horace Mann Middle School. The Institute is designed to engage students in hands-on learning in order to promote critical thinking, academic enrichment, and social development. Before attending camp, campers participate in a rigorous seven week academic intervention day camp to enhance reading, writing and math skills. Campers also have the opportunity to have fun and be themselves through traditional camp activities such as archery, swimming, climbing, mountain biking, hiking, and much more.

Part of my responsibility is to raise $450.00 to support the cost of sending a child to camp. This is where I need your help. I am asking your support, at whatever amount you feel comfortable, to help me reach my goal and to give a child the opportunity to experience what may be their first-ever experience of going to camp.

Thank you,
Charissa

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!
