M*A*S*H Camp Offers Look at Health Care Careers

Local organization are partnering together to sponsor a summer day camp for middle school students interested in exploring careers in the health care industry.

Activities for M*A*S*H Camp include seeing the inside of a hospital operating room, learning to scrub in and sew up wounds, checking out an emergency helicopter and dissecting organs to find out how they work.

M*A*S*H Camp is targeted to students entering 6th, 7th or 8th grade in the fall. All events will take place July 12-13 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at Northeast Regional Medical Center and Truman State University. Space is limited to the first 26 students to register. A limited number of scholarships are available to families for whom the $40 registration fee is a considerable hardship. Registration covers meals, activities and a t-shirt.
