HCC's CAMO (Civilian & Military Organization) club is a brand new club that was born from the Military Club. Over the years, students thought that in order to be part of the Military Club, you had to be in the military, but that was not the case. While CAMO still has its roots with veterans, it is time for the club to look to the future, take on a change, enlist new members, and embody a different way of thinking. 

The CAMO club will hold the original values that the Military Club had at its core, while growing with the changing dynamics of the student body here at HCC.The Military Club hit a milestone in 2019 and elected its first civilian as president to lead the club. It marked a time to grow and change the name of the club to attract more civilian students to make it more inclusive of the students here at HCC.Here at CAMO we welcome everyone on campus to join us, whether you are military or civilian. The goal of CAMO is to bridge the gap between military and civilian personnel, two very different worlds with the same goals of being better people and knowing how to work together to get the job done. 

Meetings are held on Thursdays from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in DON 138.

Our mission is to teach society the reality behind the "latino" stereotypes; to learn by supporting other clubs and participating in HCC's activities and events; and to unite people because we believe in teamwork. When you join LISA, you become part of our family. We are focusing this year on the Latin Heritage Film Festival, Expo Latino, and fundraising to travel to Puerto Rico.
