Health Careers Summer Camps

Health Careers Camps are 5 day programs held around the state of Wisconsin. These camps allow the students to experience first hand the challenges, opportunities and rewards of health professions.

For summer 2017, we are pleased to offer 6 overnight camps:

  • Fox Valley (Oshkosh)
  • Lakeshore (Manitowoc)
  • La Crosse
  • Platteville
  • Madison
  • North Central WI (Stevens Point)
  • Northwest WI (Hudson Area)
The hands-on activities are facilitated by health profession students, instructors and health care professionals. Diversity awareness and leadership skill training are also a part of the camp experience.

 

This unique camp is a collaboration of Wisconsin AHEC regional offices, local colleges, technical schools colleges, and area healthcare practitioners. These summer camps are open to any high school student living in the counties served by the regional AHEC center sponsoring the camp.

Meals, lodging expenses and other program costs are provided by AHEC funding and sponsoring organizations. Counselors will be on site at all times. A non-refundable confirmation fee is required upon acceptance to a camp. Financial Assistance is available upon request.There are scholarships available.
