Think you’re ready for a career in healthcare? Attend Mini Medical School, and see if you have what it takes! As an intern here, you’ll learn about DNA, x-rays, human anatomy, personal health and more – all while having fun and even performing mock surgery. You’ll learn a lot about different healthcare fields and the many kinds of providers. So put on some scrubs and let’s see what you’re made of! This is one of our most popular camps, so early registration is strongly recommended.
