Camp Launch has four goals:

Camp Launch at William & Mary

  • to deliver advanced instruction in academic content, such as STEM, writing, academic self-efficacy, and personal development;
  • to provide enrichment opportunities in a wide variety of content areas;
  • to encourage the development of peer support networks; and
  • to develop in campers a future orientation that includes a college education, along with preparation that will help them take advantage of enabling opportunities to achieve that goal.
