In an ongoing effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Penn State Mont Alto is assessing the viability of offering MedCamp 2021 in its usual, in-person format. Uppermost in our minds is the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and community members.
We appreciate your interest in MedCamp and ask for your patience as we evaluate our options. Tentative dates for MedCamp 2021 are June 14-18, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
MedCamp at Penn State Mont Alto is a unique opportunity for students with a strong interest in science, healthcare, and medical careers.
MedCamp is a popular long running camp, open to students interested in learning more about healthcare and medical careers. The program gives incoming ninth- and tenth-grade students the opportunity to visit high profile facilities such as Hershey Medical Center, WellSpan Health, Wilson College Vet Tech Program, and Shenandoah University. Students learn about healthcare careers, including physical medicine, surgery, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, radiology, pathology, and lots more!
The “home base” for the camp is Penn State Mont Alto and transportation is provided by charter and school bus lines to field trip locations throughout the week.
