A sampling of careers explored may include: physical therapy and sports medicine, nursing, pharmacy, radiology, anesthesiology, cardiopulmonary, orthopedics, medical lab science, mental health counseling, and emergency medical services.
Campers will have the opportunity to participate in unique hands-on activities and demonstrations such as x-ray interpretation, casting, suturing, prostheses, lab analysis, and emergency response to a mock accident. All campers will receive certification in Heartsaver CPR.
