A Message From Bianca Thoburn

I was walking through the woods of Yosemite with my mom, dad, and cousin. I was about eight years old at the time, and I felt like a true Indiana Jones. Every hill we climbed was a mountain, every stream a roaring river, and every fallen log an imposing obstacle. I was daring. I was unstoppable. I was free. After what felt like hours, we reached a clearing in the trees that opened into a quaint meadow filled with wildflowers and long grass dancing in the breeze. My younger cousin's eyes were wide with awe as she whispered "this is the most beautiful thing I ever sawed." We were all touched by nature's endless beauty, while standing side by side as a family.
This is one of those moments I look back on during my hardest times to remind myself that I'm not alone. I have people who care about me and a breath-taking world by my side. But not everyone has memories like this to look back on- not everyone has something so grounding to get them through life's obstacles. UniCamp provides the resources, space, and people to make moments like these more possible in the lives of those who truly deserve a chance to smile. If I can have any part in helping another child find their inner adventurer, feel supported by a friend, or even discover the beauty of the natural world, my heart will feel more full than ever. UniCamp doesn't just offer a week for kids to laugh; it provides them with an opportunity to feel more whole in a world with a lot of broken pieces.

18th 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!
