A Message From Alana Canann
My first year at Unicamp, I joined session Transitional Youth Empowerment (TYE) as part of the Accelerated Transfer Leadership Program. That program made it possible for me to participate in leadership at UCLA in Unicamp during my first quarter at UCLA and this year up the mountain. I came back again for another year as a Head Counselor for TYE! Now I'm back again as a CLIMB advisor! I need to raise $750.00 in order to go back up to camp as this helps subsidize the cost for the campers. If you can, please help by donating! (It’s tax deductible!) It's honestly such a great organization that I am proud to be a part of. If donating isn't an option at the moment, please share! Thank you so much!!
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.
