Camp Ubuntu Watts

To further anchor our presence and impact in the community, we offer a free, six-week summer program directly in Watts. Camp Ubuntu Watts allows us to build on the success of the weekend retreats and provide much needed enrichment directly where our youth and their families live, specifically during the summer months when crime rates are highest.

At Camp Ubuntu Watts, we encourage positive self-development and foster teamwork by offering a holistic and balanced schedule of programming. On any given day, campers engage in something artistic, something athletic, and something enriching, where high-quality programs range from film-making to conflict resolution. Group rotations introduce students to a variety of activities and a free-choice component allows them to pursue their individual interests.
