Camp College is an college preparation program targeted to prepare a diverse group of students from across the state of Texas for college.

  • attend a college fair
  • stay in college dorms, eat in a dining hall, and experience campus life
  • connect with college counseling professionals who will provide valuable tips and insight into the application process

Volunteers from colleges, universities, community based organizations, and high schools across the state serve as mentors to Camp College students.
