Final Presentations

Parents/guardians are invited to CAMP presentations and the closing luncheon. CAMP participants will present their final campaign projects in Reese Phifer Hall (Room 216) on July 14 at 9AM. This is a chance for parents/guardians to see their student’s hard work and contributions during the CAMP program.

Travel:

Participants that are driving themselves will be able to park their cars in the Riverside East surface lot and parking deck (the large lot in yellow on this map). After students arrive, their keys will be collected and any remaining transportation needs will be provided by CAMP.
