The health-care industry offers several options for potential careers, and many of those will be explored at a summer camp sponsored by the Ephraim McDowell Health Care Foundation, Southern Kentucky Area Health Education Center and Campbellsville University.
This year's camp is planned for the week of July 21-25. Activities will be offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center and McDowell Wellness Center in Danville and James B. Haggin Memorial Hospital in Harrodsburg, with an optional one-night stay at Campbellsville University.
The camp, now in its sixth year, is geared for boys and girls entering the eighth and ninth grades who may be considering a career in health care. Transportation is available from Campbellsville, Liberty, Stanford, Lancaster, Harrodsburg and Perryville.
"Our camp offers a lot of fun, hands-on activities to participants that expose campers to the many rewarding careers they can go into in health care," said Harry Nickens, spokesperson for Ephraim McDowell Health. "By attending the camp, students will get a better idea of the classes they need to take in school to be better prepared in their pursuit of their chosen career."
