United Cerebral Palsy of Central Florida – Loch Haven Center UCP’s goal is to offer hope to kids. UCP began in 1955 with a group of parents who started a program in a remodeled house on Colonial Drive. Today, UCP serves over 2,300 children from ages 3 to 21. UCP is staffed by a plethora of experienced and caring people. UCP serves children with all disabilities and developmental delays. Information from UCP of Central Florida

Engagement Activities Our Group: I knew Alyssa and Derek from previous classes at UCF. We are all creative individuals, and when Derek proposed an art camp, we were so excited! Josh and Lauren joined our group because they liked the idea of an art camp too. Derek was the master mind of this project’s foundation, and he was gracious enough to provide the vast majority of the supplies himself! He provided our students with excellent art tools from art supply stores and Painted by Hue. Community Need: Students enrolled at UCP’s summer camp engage in many activities (arts and crafts, dance, games, sports, socializing, etc.). We thought these students would benefit from a truly artistic program, in which they could create person works of art using specific methods artists are known for.
