Students

University Camps Inc., prides itself on the quality of it’s volunteers and our excellence in training and programmatic delivery has not gone unnoticed. University Camps Inc. programs are distinguished by being Southern California's leader in University-based camping.

In 1998 our UCLA UniCamp program was given the prestigious Pioneers of Camping award by the American Camp Association and was also recognized in 2007 with the Eleanor Ellis Award for Excellence in programming.

University Camps Inc. helps campus programs recruit student volunteers in the Winter Quarter for the following summer. In each program, 400 students embark on a rigorous 100 hour training program spanning four months to prepare for camp, generally requiring a commitment of three hours a week during spring quarter and one full week of camp during the summer. Training and camp schedules vary by session, and there are usually 7 sessions per summer from which to choose. With the large number of volunteer spots available, we will make every effort to match volunteers with camp sessions that fit their schedules.
