Medics Camp Summer Camps have the cure for when kids come down with a case of summer boredom! This medical science-based summer camp lets participants discover the world of medical science, health and the human body. At the same time, they get to have fun and make new friends.
Kids aged 6-13 get to learn the topics and skills they may someday need as future doctors and healthcare professionals! Each day of each theme week in each age group is a different experience to immerse themselves in the world of medicine. Combining learning with fun hands-on activities, their programs are the ideal summer activity for kids who are intellectually curious and also passionate about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Meanwhile, the engaging topics are sure to challenge and inspire your budding geniuses!
Medics Camp offers a unique STEM experience for kids to ignite their curiosity and get them excited about science. Each camp day, they participate in different age-appropriate activities, including fun and educational experiments, games and crafts.
Camp Discover (Ages 6-13)
For young campers interested in discovering the world of medical science, Medics Camp Summer Camps could be the first step in their professional journey! Kids learn about the skeletal system, examine x-rays, and apply splints, casts and slings. Activities cover many practical applications, such as learning hand-washing skills, understanding how medications and vaccines work, learning basic first aid skills and finding out when to call 911. Campers also learn about the heart and cardiovascular system, use real medical equipment to take vital signs and learn about different blood types.
Camp Explore (Ages 6-13)
Camp Explore builds on the participants’ skills by exploring the nervous system, brain functions, mental health, pet health and veterinary medicine. Kids take a journey through the human body’s digestive system, from eating all the way through to (ahem) pooping. Campers also learn how our eyes and ears work, learn sign language, and create their names using the braille alphabet. Young Medics then practice their surgical skills and continue to develop their first aid skills.
Camp Forensic Medicine (Ages 8-13)
Older kids and teens can spend an exciting week identifying and analyzing microscopic clues to help solve crimes! Junior Medics explore forensic pathology, DNA, blood basics and dactyloscopy (fingerprints), plus odontology (teeth), entomology (insects) and anthropology (bones). Mini Medics will explore bugs, nature, genetic traits in animals and humans, fingerprints and footprints. Throughout the week, Medics complete team challenges where they can use their problem-solving skills and hone their observational skills. Then, at the end of the week, they get to use their newfound skills to solve a robbery.
Camp FALCON — First Aid and Leadership (Ages 14-16)
If your teen enjoys medical science and wants to take their leadership skills to the next level, they can embark on a journey that is as much about leadership as it is about first aid. The Medics Camp FALCON program helps teens develop their basic first-aid skills and gives them the confidence to use these skills when needed.
The first aid component of FALCON covers the traditional Red Cross standard first aid and a CPR course. There is also a psychological first aid section, which is a particularly relevant topic for youth in these challenging times. The weekly activities present challenges to help build their self-confidence and self-esteem. Medics Camp also teaches young people to handle medical emergencies and everyday challenges to help them be better leaders at home, in school and in their communities.
