Test Drive a Career in Healthcare

Is your son or daughter interested in a career in healthcare? Adventures in Healthcare is an overnight summer camp with one goal – to introduce high school students to different careers in healthcare.

Adventures in Healthcare is a partnership between Northern Light Health and Eastern Maine Community College. And, the four day camp gives students 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 EMMC 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.

Tuition is $275 if paid in full by May 1st, and thereafter, the price is $300. Interested in registering or looking for more information? Check out EMCC’s website for summer camps at: https://www.emcc.edu/student-life/life-at-emcc/summer-camps/adventures-healthcare-camp-survivor-sign/.
