“I loved this camp!  It was so helpful and so much fun!”

“I will totally recommend this camp.” 

“I thought this camp was superb! I heard about it through my high school guidance counselor.  It was very organized and so many different professionals came and talked to us. I also met new friends while learning what I enjoy.” Thank you so much!

“I came to this camp because I thought it would improve my knowledge on the hospital.  It was definitely worth the drive from Seward.  I learned so much and found this extremely helpful.  I had so much fun and enjoyed all of the hands-on activities.  If I was able to come back to this camp, I definitely would.”

“The real question….what didn’t I enjoy doing?  I had a blast doing everything at this camp!”

“I had a really good time and learned a lot.  I would recommend this camp to anyone with an interest in healthcare.” 

“It is hard to believe that the camp was only a week.  We do so much more than a week’s worth of activities and I learned so much.  I really want to go into the medical field and this camp showed me my options.”

“This camp was amazing!  I learned so much and was excited to come back each day and learn – which is rare.  It has better prepared me and has completely opened my eyes to the abundance of career options, including ones I have not ever considered.  I have taken so much from this camp – it was such a great opportunity.
