Scrubs Camp Huron
Scrubs Camps are one day, hands-on opportunities for high school students.
Scrubs Camps are designed to increase awareness, interest, and understanding of health careers available in South Dakota through creative and interactive activities.
Scrubs Camps will provide an opportunity for students to experience first-hand, the challenges, opportunities and rewards of health careers. All while learning about the skills and education that are required to become a health professional.
So you’ve been thinking about a health career. Well, this is a great way to know if that’s really what you want to do.
Scrubs Camp is a one-day, hands-on experience where you rub elbows with pros who actually DO healthcare for a living. Learn what it’s like to arrive at the scene of an emergency. Remove a “mole” from a calm, cooperative patient (think banana!). See some of the cool gadgets used to make people better. And a whole lot more. Pretty cool stuff, don’t you think?
If you’re in 9th through 12th grade and think you’re interested in a health career, Scrubs Camp is a must do. There’s NO CHARGE to attend and we’ll even throw in lunch. If you want, bring your parents. The more, the merrier!
Camps are held throughout the state and each one is tailored to the interests of the students in that area. One thing’s for sure: You’ll get a full day to roll up your sleeves and do all sorts of cool things that’ll give you a taste of what happens behind the scenes. Such as, learn how to set and cast a broken bone! See how physical therapists work with people after an injury. Perform surgery on a pig’s foot. And more! We’ll even throw in some personalized career guidance!
Although sessions provided at camps vary slightly, the examples below will give you a taste of what’s to come!
