The Saint Anthony College of Nursing and OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center staff are collaborating once again to host their annual "Explore Healthcare" camp for students who are entering the 6th, 7th & 8th grades this fall.
The three-day camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, June 9- 11, at the Saint Anthony College of Nursing facility located at OSF Guilford Square, 698 Featherstone Road in Rockford.
The camp offers a fun, hands-on and interactive introduction to different areas of health care, from laboratory science and emergency medicine to forensic science.
