Tri-State CAMP Services

Tri-State CAMP offers a wide variety of services, which include:

Assistance with application processing for

  • Admissions
  • Financial Aid
  • Housing

Our staff wants to assist you in any way we can.  This may include assistance with applying for colleges, applying for financial aid, and finding housing while in college. 

Academic Advising Career/Counseling

Our goal is to provide services that will lead to improvement in employment skills. Our staff is ready to help you identify your career goals, align courses to your career and personal interests, and explore career options. Our staff will also provide coping strategies for new life experiences, interpersonal skills, problem solving, decision making skills, self-confidence, and poise.

Cultural Activities/Campus Visits

We hope that each of our students leaves our program with a broader understanding of worldly culture.  To make this possible, we encourage our students and help supplement expenses to attend cultural activities.

One of our goals is that each student will continue to a 4 year college after their first 2 years in college.  We strongly encourage doing campus visits during the students’ freshman year, and we enjoy going with the students on these visits.

Health Services

At present, all requests for health screenings or needs should be discussed on an individual basis with CAMP staff.

  • Up to $200 stipend paid to providers for health services ( i.e. dental, vision, etc. )

Mentoring Program/Student Advocacy

Each site is equipped with a mentor that wants to help our students succeed, not only in CAMP, but in life.  This mentor will meet with the students (at least) once a week for one hour. 

Personalized Tutoring

Each site has a tutor who assists students in classwork, helps them reach personal goals, and holds them accountable for maintaining/exceeding a 2.0 GPA. CAMP tutor meets with the students (at least) once a week for one hour.

Transportation, Child Care, Stipends

  • Each student is guaranteed $40 per month for incidental purchases. 
  • Students can be reimbursed for child care during the times the student is attending college classes, maximum $50/week.  Tri-State CAMP cannot hire or pay child care providers directly.  Each student is responsible for hiring their own child care provider.
  • Students may receive a transportation stipend each semester to assist with gas expenses.

Transitional Services for continuing CAMP students

We want to help make the transition into the students’ following years a smooth one. To do this, Tri-State CAMP’s staff will do follow-up visits.
