This weekend I went on a retreat with one of my favorite organizations at UCLA: UCLA UniCamp! UniCamp was founded at UCLA in 1934 (only 15 years after UCLA was founded) and is UCLA’s official student charity. Through UniCamp, students volunteer to fundraise money that goes towards subsidizing the cost to send under-served students aged 10-14 years old from the greater Los Angeles up in the mountains to summer camp for a week. Up at camp, the UCLA students act as their counselors and we lead them in tons of character-building activities and other activities that they can’t do down in the city like mountain-biking, fishing, rock-climbing, and simply star-gazing. During Spring quarter, UniCamp volunteers train for 100 hours. During this time we become super close with our session (the other people I’ll be up at camp with for the week). At retreat we did a lot of character building activities and team building activities that we can do with the kids once we’re up at camp as well. I had so so much fun bonding with them (not to mention we got to stay in an awesome beach house) and I can’t wait to hang out with them again at meeting this week!
