About Camp UNITE

Activities during camp are designed to develop leadership and communication skills, promote teamwork and problem solving, instill confidence and trust, and let youth know they do not have to face difficult situations on their own.

Transportation to and from camp is provided free of charge if needed.

Since its inception in 2007, through 2014, Camp UNITE has hosted 1,531 youth from 32 counties.

Camp UNITE 2014


The 8th annual Camp UNITE program was attended by 206 youth from 21 counties in southern and eastern Kentucky. Held on the University of the Cumberlands campus in Williamsburg, KY, July 22-25, 2014, camp included 12 activity tracks (archery, art, basketball, cheerleading, dance, drama, football, golf, karate, soccer, Ultimate Frisbee and volleyball), an afternoon at the Kentucky Splash Water Park, an impaired driving course, outrageous field games, morning skits and songs, talent show, testimonies from recovering addicts, leadership activities, motivational speakers … and much more. The staff of Kentucky Employers Mutual Insurance Company (KEMI) from Lexington provided one of the highest rated camp activities — Capture the Flag.
While at camp the students stayed in the college dorms and were placed in small teams under the guidance of trained youth counselors and supervised by adult staff and volunteers. In 2014 UNITE utilized the leadership of more than 120 youth and adult volunteers.
