Area middle school students get hands on experience in health care through a camp this summer.
St. Anthony College of Nursing hosts the "Explore Healthcare Summer Camp". Students learn basic first aid and get an inside look at a lifeline helicopter and ambulance.
Organizers say the time spent in this camp is time well spent for children looking to enter the medical field in the future.
"When they're in middle school and preparing for high school, they're taking the math and sciences to get them encouraged to take the math and sciences so they're ready to go into the college level courses that they'll need so they can do it in four years or six or eight depending on the program," said Nancy Sanders, Associate Dean for support services.
The camp runs on June 12th and 13th from 9 in the morning to 3:30 in the afternoon.
