A Message From William Chan
UCLA UniCamp is the official philanthropy of the Students of UCLA. UniCamp is an independently funded non-profit that connects UCLA with the community. Each year, UCLA UniCamp inspires over 1,200 children from urban communities to envision brighter futures by sending them, along with 450 student volunteers, to its residential outdoor summer camp. Because of UniCamp, both volunteers and campers have a chance to: Lead, Play, Learn.
Our session is inspired by the African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." Our week of camp will be dedicated to reconnecting African American students with their heritage as well as providing them a safe, culturally empowering space to express themselves and discuss current issues facing their communities.
