A Message From Michael Jimenez

UCLA UniCamp has been the single most inspiring thing I have ever done. Seeing the incredible impact that UCLA student volunteers can have on the youth of Los Angeles after just one week is absolutely mind-boggling. Two years ago, I participated in the WALL program, leading a group of 14 teenagers on a 26+ mile hike to the summit of Mt. San Gorgonio, Southern California's tallest peak. Over the course of this hike, these individuals demonstrated self-confidence, perseverance, and dedication to collectively accomplishing a seemingly impossible task. Due to unfavorable weather conditions, our group was unable to reach the very top of the summit. That day, we all learned a valuable lesson: the destination is not the most important thing in the world, rather, it is the journey that takes you wherever you end up. Having goals is great, but the things you experience along the way to achieving these goals can be just as meaningful as accomplishing these goals : meeting new people, learning new things about the world and yourself, to name but a few. Seeing how much my campers grew as individuals after just a week, I knew I had to return to the program to ensure that it would continue to do the same for others.

About This Campaign

In the midst of our UCLA UniCamp Student Volunteer's nearly 100 hours of training, they somehow manage to find a day to meet on campus and continue training and bonding 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 $290,000. This will help UCLA UniCamp give over 1,300 campers a summer camping experience.

Join us in this great cause. UCLA UniCamp is a tradition at UCLA that is entering its 80th summer of camp. Every year there are hundreds of under-served 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 contribution.
