WHAT IS THIS? The Pediatric AIDS Coalition (PAC) at UCLA puts on a Life Skills Retreat for
students around the country to participate in a weekend long event that is catered to
provide a space for young adults to grow and learn new skills that will help them in all
aspects of their life. This retreat is coordinated and ran by current UCLA students who are
apart of CAMP. We will also have at least one therapist during the weekend where students
can schedule a one-on-one time if they would like. The goal of this retreat is to address
every aspect of the student’s life now and their future endeavors. This includes but is not
limited to; mental/physical health, money management, college applications, preparing for
job interviews, grants/scholarships, HIV 101 and more.
EXPECTATIONS: CAMP’s Life Skills retreat is designed so that students not only have a fun
weekend but also have the opportunity to gain knowledge and advice on the many
challenges students will face as they become a young adult. We are going to have a blast,
but we are also going to have some very serious moments.
CAMP has set forth expectations to ensure the safety and well-being of the student, which
will allow them to get the most of Life Skills as possible. We expect everyone to respect the
privacy of the cabins, use proper language, and treat everyone with respect. The use or
possession of weapons, drugs, or alcohol are strictly prohibited at all times. Individual and
group activities will provide a time for introspection and personal growth. This is a time for
the students to focus on themselves.
