A Message From Mariah Amaya "Curly Fry Woodsey"
This is my third year coming back to Unicamp as a Head Counselor for Accelerated Transfer Leadership. Our mission is to recruit incoming UCLA transfers, giving them their first experience at UCLA with some amazing people. On top of that, we also fundraise for the kiddos that go up to the summit with us! In past years, I volunteered for Transitional Youth Empowerment (TYE) because as a former foster youth, I know the struggles of feeling belonged and loved. I assure you all that our campers ALWAYS find this sense of empowerment and belonging here at UCLA's Unicamp. With your help we can make their dreams come true! Which is why it is imperative that I raise the $450 to lower the cost for a camper to go up and enjoy the fun.
UniCamp is the official charity of UCLA students. Founded in 1934, UniCamp is an independently funded non-profit org that links the University with the community and is UCLA's longest-running tradition. We are made up of students, alumni, and past campers that are now volunteers. We act as leaders whom are driven to support kids from underserved backgrounds to give them the joyous experience of camp!
Many of the kids that we bring up to camp have never experienced camp and have never been given that opportunity. Each year, UniCamp inspires nearly 1,000 children from low-income families to envision brighter futures by sending them, along with 350 student volunteers, to its residential outdoor summer camp, Camp River Glen, which is in the San Bernardino mountains.
