    Overview

    UCLA UniCamp is the official student charity of the University of California, Los Angeles. UniCamp operates as an independently funded not-for-profit organization that links the University with the community.

    Classic UniCamp

    Ages 10-14

    Classic UniCamp serves campers ages 10 – 14 and is our most traditional residential camp program. Campers have the opportunity to explore the outdoors and participate in traditional camp programs such as: archery, arts & crafts, or rec. and also have the chance to push themselves with programs such as: the alpine climbing tower, sailing, or mountain biking. In addition to the traditional camp experience, each Classic UniCamp session partners with a Los Angeles area nonprofit or after-school program to address a specific social initiative. Throughout each camp session there will be special programs to address that week’s initiative.

    Older Camper Programs Ages 15-17

    Specialty camps are available for campers ages 15 – 17 and are designed to push campers out of their comfort zone and challenge them to become leaders within UniCamp. Participants are taught program specific skills and asked to take more leadership responsibilities around the campsite.

    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. In order to be eligible to attend UCLA UniCamp, a student must: A. Qualify for free or reduced meals at school or; B. Have an open DCFS case or; C: Family is part of the CalFresh Program.
