Camp UNITE is comprised of many fun, action-packed activities designed to develop leadership and communication skills, promote teamwork and problem solving, instill confidence and trust, and – perhaps most important – let youth know they do not have to face difficult situations alone.
This FREE four-day, three-night program includes motivational speakers, special interest activity tracks, an afternoon at a waterpark, community service projects, talent show, outrageous messy field games, and more. Camp participants are placed in small groups under the guidance of more than 50 volunteer Team Leaders – high school seniors and college students – supervised by adult UNITE staff. Each camp utilizes the services of an additional 100+ community volunteers.
Since its inception in 2007, through 2018, Camp UNITE has hosted 2,384 youth from 33 counties.

The 12th annual Camp UNITE was conducted July 24-27, 2018, at the University of the Cumberlands. A record number of 229 campers from 28 counties, supported by 201 team leaders and adult volunteers, participated in this year’s camp.
The theme for Camp UNITE 2018 was “UNITE Strong: A Voice of Hope.” This theme – emphasized in a video message from First Lady Melania Trump – reflects the ability of campers, Team Leaders, and adult volunteers to be an example for others in making positive, healthy choices – both during Camp and, especially, once they return to their homes and school environments.
Throughout the week, this message was conveyed through fun, interactive activities that expose participants to new options and opportunities. In addition, time was set aside for introspective discussions and special presentations about the consequences of poor decision-making and ways to avoid making the wrong choices. Transportation to and from camp is provided free of charge.
