What our organization offers: 
Subjects / Categories: 
Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
A STEM certified summer camp where kids aged 5 to 12 get to be ‘Doctors for a Week,’ have fun and make new friends. It is designed for kids who are intellectually curious and interested in learning about health and the human body and medical science. Our age based programs combine learning and fun hands-on activities that are challenging enough to engage and inspire. Our 3 onsite summer program themes called DISCOVER, EXPLORE and FORENSIC MED are all completely different with each day of each program theme unique for each age group so that kids can enjoy a unique experience as they age up.

If you're looking for a unique, fun and educational experience for your children this summer, Medics Camp offers innovative summer camp programs , where kids ages 5 to 12 get to be "doctors for a week". It's an amazing opportunity for curious kids to become immersed in the world of medical science!

We are a certified STEM.org educational experience and one of the few that specialize in medical science.  Each program theme offers daily medical-related topics with age based hands-on engagement activities all delivered in a fun and creative way. First Aid Fridays are a part of every camp theme week, providing important life skills for kids of any age.

Our traditional camp programs (DISCOVER, EXPLORE, FORENSIC MED) are designed for 3 different age groups so that campers can learn and interact with their peers: Munchkin Medics (5-6 years), Mini Medics (7-8 years) and Junior Medics (9-12 years.) 

FALCON is our one of a kind First Aid Leadership Camp for teens ages 13-17.  This week long program teaches the Red Cross standard first aid and cpr course but at a more relaxed pace and with scenarios and examples designed with teens in mind.  As part of their FALCON experience with us, teens will have the opportunity to get Red Cross certfied in first aid at no additional cost.  First Aid skills are not the only life skills they will learn.  Leadership skills such as communication, collaboration, problem solving, goal setting and team building will be woven in to the daily program.  This unique program for teens will challenge them physically and mentally but in a way that is intended to empower them, build confidence and boost their self esteem as they work to complete each challenge.  

 

Ready to learn something new? Many of the daily Medics Camp topics taught are ones that the average child isn’t introduced to until high school or sometimes never at all. Giving more kids an opportunity to learn about medical science, health and the human body may change the way they view science and future careers in STEM. There are so many fields of science and kids need more opportunities at younger ages to see what’s out there. Medics Camp provides that opportunity.
