Established in 1965, Camp Wildcat is a student-run, non-profit organization at the University of Arizona that provides quality, cost-free camping trips and day activities for underserved and at-risk youth throughout the Tucson community. We offer children the opportunity to challenge personal limits, build interpersonal skills, explore creative outlets, enhance self-esteem, and view higher education and personal success as attainable goals!
Our non-profit organization is composed of over 100 University of Arizona student volunteers. Since our creation in 1965, we have done all administration, fundraising, and camp directing without any paid staff or faculty assistance. Each year, Camp Wildcat members perform over 30,000 hours of community service towards helping Tucson's youth! Click here to see a list of our Board of Directors.
