Nebraska Methodist College’s Summer 2016 Healthcare Career Camp

The 3rd annual Healthcare Career Camp will be held at Nebraska Methodist College (NMC). This year, we are excited to offer two camp options! We will continue to offer our experience camp, which includes overnight stay in our on-campus apartments, as well as a day-only camp. The camp offers students the chance for hands-on experiences in all of our degree programs, as well as time in our Human A&P (Cadaver Lab), Pathology Lab (at Main Campus hospital) and our Microbiology Lab.

Day Camp Dates:  June 27-30, 2016

Cost:  $275

This day camp gives you the opportunity to learn about the healthcare world and experience a variety of exciting activities throughout the day while enabling you to head home at the end of each day.

Overnight Camp Dates: July 11-14, 2016

Cost: $400

Our overnight camp provides you the same introduction to healthcare as the day camp but allows you to immerse yourself in a true college experience by letting you stay overnight in our apartment-style, on-campus housing. Activities will be planned for each evening you stay on campus.

Both camps will take place at Nebraska Methodist College, 720 N 87th St, Omaha NE 68114.
