High school students entering grades 8-10 this fall and interested in exploring careers in health care can attend a two-day camp at Bemidji State University, July 31-Aug. 1, sponsored by the Northwest Minnesota Area Health Education Center.
The camp, “SCRUBS Camp: Focus on Health Care,” will offer students with a unique opportunity to explore health care, oral health care and veterinary medicine by participating in hands-on learning sessions in a college environment.
In addition to investigating the wide variety of career opportunities in the health care field, campers will tour medical facilities, network with college students, faculty and health professionals in the area, and participate in a number of hands-on learning and leadership activities.
The camp carries a $95 fee, which includes camp fees, meals and on-campus lodging for one night; scholarships are available for students who qualify. Interested students are encouraged to register early, as participation in the camp will be limited to 30 students. An application is available at RiverViewHealth.org (http://bit.ly/15bLDeQ).
Additional information on scholarships, camp fees and registration forms are available from Joan Tronson, executive director of the Northwest Minnesota Area Health Education Center; (218) 281-9216, firstname.lastname@example.org.
