What was CAMP?
The College Assistance Migrant Program, referred to as CAMP, was a federally-funded program designed to support students from migrant and seasonal farm worker backgrounds during their first year in college. The program provided students with both financial assistance and support services, with the goal of preparing them to continue their education at a four-year college or university.
Camp provided many services, including tuition assistance, transportation assistance, CAMP courses, tutoring, mentoring, academic advising, personal counseling, career counseling, book assistance, health resources, and a monthly stipend.
