Who We are, In A Few Words
USC Troy Camp is USC’s oldest, largest, and most diverse philanthropy. Each year we inspire hundreds of kids from local elementary schools to pursue higher education and grow as individuals. Our organization is completely student run by undergraduates from USC.
Our approach is based off of a three-pronged model of engagement. Throughout their Troy Camp experience, counselors plan and conduct yearlong programming including providing tutoring, after school programs, and outings throughout Los Angeles for the campers of the previous summer. Additionally, counselors work towards raising the necessary funding to make Troy Camp an entirely compensated experience for each of our campers. Finally, the counselors coordinate a weeklong overnight camp for our campers at the end of May. As important as each of these branches are, none would be possible without our goal of providing constant mentorship to each camper we interact with!
