Camps: For students interested in healthcare careers.

Health Careers Exploration Camps
Health Matters Summer Camp

Camp Dates: June 10-13, 2008
Location: Abilene Christian University, Abilene, Texas
Application Deadline: May 9, 2008

The Big Country AHEC offers a four-day camp experience each summer for high school students who are interested in health careers. Summer camp participants shadow various health professionals for a more intensive look at the day-to-day work of health care. Students also tour area colleges and health care facilities, as well as participate in workshops that include CPR certification, learning about the college application and financial aid process, and learning how to develop a resume and interviewing skills.

Through the Health Matters Summer Camp, students have a chance to learn more about themselves and to see which health career opportunities are a good fit for them. Camp is not all work—students also may have the opportunity to participate in a ropes course, hang out at the swimming pool, and enjoy movies.

Students reside in the dormitory of an area community college for the duration of the camp. Camp costs are $50, and scholarships are available.

The Summer Camp will be held June 10-13, 2008
at Abilene Christian University in Abilene.
Application deadline is May 9, 2008.
