The Northwest CAMP Consortium (NWCC) will be hosted at Wenatchee Valley College April 27-28. Students from WVC’s College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) and more than a dozen CAMP programs from Washington, Idaho and Oregon will be in attendance.
The theme for this year’s NWCC is: “Cultivating student leadership and community engagement.” Over 400 students, staff and volunteers are expected to participate.
The goal of NWCC is to provide a fun, educational, and safe experience that promotes leadership, diversity, and academic success. This conference aims to prepare college students to continue to be successful scholars and encourage them to give back to their community.
CAMP is a federally-funded initiative designed to support students from migrant and seasonal farmworker backgrounds during their first year in college. The U.S. Department of Education and Office of Migrant Education created CAMP in 1972. It was established at Wenatchee Valley College in 2009.
Wenatchee Valley College enriches North Central Washington by serving educational and cultural needs of communities and residents throughout the service area.
