Camp Xavier

Camp Xavier acts as a welcome retreat for new Members and Members participating in The Co-Op, our after-school program. Designed to inspire and educate, Camp Xavier is built around creative activities and team building.

 

Camp Xavier 2019 is just around the corner.  We're looking for volunteers for Week 1 at USC.  Stay tuned for exact dates and more information..

week 1

Day Camp @ USC

Day Camp, located on the USC Campus in South Los Angeles, is an opportunity for Members to meet and get to know each other while exploring subjects and activities that most interest them.  Guided by supportive adult role models and surrounded by their peers, fellow foster youth, Members build trust and a sense of community.  Most importantly, it is a fun, care-free experience where Members can explore their own personal interests and strengths.

Week 2

UCLA UniCamp

Sleep-away camp takes place in the San Bernadino Mountains in partnership with UCLA UniCamp. Most of our Members have never left Los Angeles before, let alone been to summer camp. This time away from the stresses of their normal lives in an exciting, safe environment can be transformational. Classic summer camp activities such as mountain biking, swimming, and archery make up the agenda.

Bonded by this unique experience, Members enter the new school year and our after-school program, The Co-Op, with a sense of community and confidence in their own ability to shape their futures.
