Adventures in Healthcare Camp at Eastern Maine Community College
June 27, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until June 28, 2018
Our Adventures in Healthcare program provides high school students with the opportunity to explore the wide variety of healthcare careers through hands-on activities and exciting tribe challenges. Campers actually practice casting, suturing (on bananas), and spine immobilization. They take x-rays and use laparoscopic robots in the EMCC operating room. They sometimes even get to sit in a Lifeflight helicopter! They not only see the tools our professionals use, but they get to touch and use them as well. This component of our program is what makes it truly unique! Trust us, it is a jam-packed 4 days of fun, excitement, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences! Want to see for yourself? This camp is for students entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades in the fall of 2018.
Adventures in Healthcare is a residential program with activities lasting late into the evening and beginning early in the morning. Campers stay on gender-specific floors at Eastern Maine Community College with meals and snacks provided on-site by Chartwells Dining Services.
