Our regional health career camps are designed for high school students, ages 16 and older, residing within the Scenic Rivers AHEC region, and who are interested in pursuing a healthcare career.
Each camp offers students a realistic and up-close look into a variety of health careers, including the high demand for healthcare professionals in rural and underserved areas. We work with healthcare organizations and post-secondary educational institutions across our service region to provide students with the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experiences. These experiences include multiple job shadows, participation in simulation labs, and exploration of healthcare programs at area colleges.
There are two residential Health Career Camps offered each summer. The northern region camp is located in La Crosse and is set for June 21-24, 2020. The southern region camp is located in Platteville with the dates of June 28-July 1, 2020. Students can apply to either camp or both (students would only be selected to attend one camp).
Camp applications are now open. A PDF copy of the application is here. You may compose your personal statement in a word processing program such as Word and paste it into the application. Two teacher references are required for a complete application.
