Presented in a safe, nurturing, team-oriented environment, our programs reinforce the value of family, and community.
Choosing the right summer program for your child is a difficult and important decision. At uCamps we strive to make families feel comfortable and excited about their decision. The major goals of our programs are to bring fun, joy, self-confidence, acceptance, love, friendship, and community to all our campers. Participants are given the opportunity to discover their inner strengths, realize new talents, expand their imagination, and develop trust, acceptance, teamwork, and a high level of self-esteem.
Our dedicated staff is hand selected to work with your child. Staff is hired based on strength of character, past experience, ability to connect with and inspire children, a desire to share, and the ability to lead and serve as a positive role model. Our staff also includes instructional specialists who are hired to lead specific skill-based workshops. Workshop leaders are not only hired for their experience and ability to teach, but also for their nurturing, fun, and caring natures.
uCamps - U choose the camp for U!:
F.A.M.E. Camp: F.A.M.E. Camp (Film.Acting.Music.Enthusiasts.) is for campers with a strong desire to become an actor, filmmaker, and/or rockstar!! Campers choose a “major” in one of three key areas and enjoy a fun program while receiving an expansive training from our team of industry professionals.
Discovery Camp: Discovery Camp is perfect for first time campers as well as seasoned pros. Discover all the fun, friendship, sports, games, adventure, art, and amazing staff uCamps has to offer!!!
The Original SDC: Summer Drama Camp (SDC) is the program that started it all. Campers design their own program from start to finish. This magical camp combines the best of the worlds of art, sports and the outdoors in one amazing place.
uCamps SoCal: Spend a week in the beautiful mountains near Big Bear Lake and have the experience of a lifetime! Campers design their own program, choosing the activities they like best while making friends and working with our amazingly fun staff. It doesn't matter if you are shy or outgoing, young or old, everyone is treated like a rock star! Ride horses, make films, be in a rock band, act, sing, dance, swim, hike and play!! You can do it all at uCamps!
L.I.T Program: The Leadership in Training (LIT) Program is a dynamic leadership training for students interested in bettering themselves and the world around them. This two week training program is at once educational, transformative, hard work and tons of fun!!! Instead of participating in regular workshops with the campers, as a selected group of leaders, they attend workshops designed to improve communication, conflict resolution, team building, time management, public speaking and other skills necessary to be successful in college and in the workplace. Participants leave having learned a lot while making new friends and lifelong memories. Graduation from the program is NOT a guarantee for job placement with uCamps, but it is a prerequisite for students interested in working for uCamps in the future. In the second week of the program, L.I.T.s work directly with the campers; leading games and activities, working in the cabin and serving as positive role models.
