Theoretical Principles of Operation:

CAMP operates with a culturally relevant model of operation. Its framework has people centred approach and defines the approach as adjusting the cultural and other services to meet the diverse needs of the communities we serve. This approach is one of the many reasons why this agency has been so successful in achieving community credibility and stronger partnerships in a very short time.

The organization uses an integrated holistic model to provide empowerment, skill development and capacity building opportunities for individuals/ volunteers with a special focus on new immigrant communities. The integrated and cohesive holistic model is defined by the agency as “a model which wraps the individuals/ volunteers and their families in a variety of programs offered by CAMP”.
