On Nov. 14, local parents of prospective and current College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) students blow up balloons as part of an interactive activity to build teamwork at the Rock Creek Campus, 17705 N.W. Springville Road. They then raced with their balloons to see who could burst theirs first, pitting one side of parents against another. CAMP staff organized this fun Parent College Day to help the parents understand what is expected from their children while participating in the CAMP program, providing the parents, many who’ve never gone to college,an opportunity to experience being college students.
