High School Students Scrub in to Camp at Northwest Tech and Bemidji State

Northwest Technical College and Bemidji State University will welcome high school students interested in exploring health care careers and education pathways to a four-day Scrubs Camp from June 10–13.

Designed to be hands-on, dynamic and fast-paced, Scrubs Camp students will have the opportunity to work with local professionals in a variety of activities. The full schedule includes rotations in Bemidji State and Northwest Tech dental and nursing labs, a half-day site visit at Sanford Health in Bemidji, multiple self-care seminars and a Bemidji Airport AirMed tour. Campers will also have the chance to network with faculty and health care professionals in the area.

NTC and BSU students will serve as camp counselors and chaperone participants to daily activities and evening programs. These students will also lead a variety of interactive activities on personal and professional health, medical conditions and anatomy.

Sanford Health has partnered with BSU to offer a limited number of full scholarships for campers with financial need. The scholarships cover the full cost of the camp, including overnight accommodations, instructional costs, transportation to off-site facilities during the camp, meals and a camp t-shirt.
