What is CAMP?

The College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) is a federally-funded program designed to support students from migrant and seasonal farm worker backgrounds during their first year in college. 

This program, which has achieved a stunning success rate since inception, is funded through grants from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Migrant Education and is administered by universities, colleges and non-profit organizations nationwide.
