Area students entering the eighth or ninth grades in the fall can learn more about healthcare careers this July at Oswego Hospital’s MASH Camp.
This year’s MASH Camp (Medical Academy of Science and Health) at Oswego Hospital will be held August 2nd and 3rd from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. During the camp, students will have the opportunity to take part in hands-on activities such as learning how to suture, which is taught by the hospital surgery center staff. There will also be tours of many departments, providing the students with a behind-the-scenes look at the hospital and the variety of jobs that are offered in a healthcare setting.
The deadline to apply for MASH Camp is June 8th.
All campers will receive hospital scrubs to wear each day at camp, breakfast and lunch, a tee shirt, and educational materials. The camp is coordinated by the Central New York Area Health Education Center. Helping to support the MASH Camp is the Oswego Hospital Auxiliary.
Space is limited to 20 students at M.A.S.H. Camp and application will be determined by a selection process. To access the online application, visit CNYAHEC at https://www.cnyahec.com/apply/ -30-
