What is CAMP?  The Cross-Age Mentoring Program (CAMP) is a comprehensive, highly structured developmental mentoring program that pairs high school aged mentors with late elementary and early middle school aged students in a mentoring relationship for one or more years. The matches meet weekly after school for 2 hours, 3-4 Saturdays a year, and for 10 days in the summer—all at school, under the supervision of trained program staff, and guided by a structured curriculum of activities designed to foster school connectedness and social perspective-taking skills.
