MASH Camps

MASH Camp, or the Medical Academy of Science and Health, is a fun and educational day camp for students to explore health careers. Students are exposed to a variety of health professions, covering everything from on-the-job-training to an advanced college degree.

Campers enjoy two to three days of fun and interaction at a local healthcare facility, where they will:

  • Learn about a variety of health professions as viable career options;
  • Learn about the educational requirements, skills, typical job duties, and personal qualities of successful health professionals and para-professionals; and
  • Participate in interactive, hands-on workshops* that highlight the skills, equipment, technology, and resources used by health professionals.

As part of the camp experience, each participant will receive scrubs and lanyard with name badge to wear at camp; breakfast, lunch, and snacks; certificate of participation; and lots of attention from caring health professionals!

MASH Camps held during the summer are for students entering the 8th and 9th grades**. MASH Camps held during the school year are for students currently in the 8th and 9th grades.

*Workshop topics vary by healthcare facility and may include physical therapy, nursing, surgery, food service, clinical laboratory sciences, cardiac care, pathology, diagnostic imaging, recreational therapy, pharmacy, emergency medicine, and others.

**MASH Camp is typically for students entering the 8th and 9th grades, however, some camp locations have opted for a different age range of students. The age range for each camp is listed below.
