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.

75% Annual Growth in Camp Ubuntu Watts Attendance: In 2016, Camp Ubuntu Watts served an average of 140 campers per day (up from 88/day in 2015 and 45/day in 2014).
Hosting our program would not be possible without our amazing partners.
