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 2016, Camp UNITE has hosted 1,932 youth from 32 counties.
 

Camp UNITE 2016


 
Camp_2016_ShirtThe 10th annual Camp UNITE – a 4-day, 3-night leadership/adventure program for youth entering grades 7-9 – was held at the University of the Cumberlands July 26-29, 2016.
 
The 2016 Camp UNITE program was attended by 207 youth from 23 counties in southern and eastern Kentucky. Camp included 11 activity tracks (archery, art, basketball, dance, drama, Eye-Spy, football, 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, presentation on marijuana by the National Marijuana Initiative, talent show and dance, testimonies from recovering substance abusers, leadership activities, motivational speaker Hannah Gadd (who served all week as a Team Leader) … 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 and Human Foosball.
 
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 2016 UNITE utilized the leadership of 181 youth and adult volunteers.
