BENEFITING: COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS OF LOS ANGELES INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 22, 2012
For the second year in a row, Communities In Schools of Los Angeles has the exciting opportunity to send 150 of our 8th grade students to UCLA UniCamp's matriculation session, a week-long camping experience designed to help 8th graders transition into high school.
A donation of $100 will send a student to UniCamp for the entire week!
UniCamp is UCLA's official student charity, established in 1934. Each summer, 350 UCLA students volunteer their time in order to provide a unique camping experience to over 1,000 children from underserved neighborhoods in the greater Los Angeles area.
Campers from CISLA middle schools will have the opportunity to take part in traditional camp activities like hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and arts and crafts. During the evening, counselors lead outcome based programs which focus on the transition to high school as well as the importance of education. And as you can tell from the photos, our students have a lot of fun up there!
Please help us provide this incredible summer experience to our students!
