Summer Enrichment Opportunities
Scrubs Camp is a healthcare career immersion program where students explore various aspects of healthcare and the careers that exist within. The goal of Scrubs Camp is to get students excited and interested in pursuing a career in healthcare, and to go back home motivated and focused on what they can do in high school to prepare for that potential career.
Scrubs Camps are offered as both day camps and overnight camps, where students get to stay overnight on a college campus. Many of the camps offer scholarships that cover the tuition (see each camp for details).
