Summer Camps

The mission of our summer programs is to offer unique, innovative programming for campers that fosters creativity, leadership, and individuality in accordance with the mission statement of Eastern Maine Community College. Our staff has extensive experience in summer programming, student life, and engagement activities, and are all dedicated to creating rewarding experiences for each camper. Respect, enthusiasm, and creativity are paramount in all our programs. We expect campers to be inquisitive, honest, and energetic, and to be willing to try new things. We expect parents to help foster and camp staff to welcome these characteristics, as well as understand that each child is an individual.

Adventures in Healthcare

(for students entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades in the fall of 2018)

Our Adventures in Healthcare program provides high school students with the opportunity to explore the wide variety of healthcare careers through hands-on activities and exciting tribe challenges. Campers actually practice casting, suturing (on bananas), and spine immobilization. They take x-rays and use laparoscopic robots in the EMCC operating room. They sometimes even get to sit in a Lifeflight helicopter! They not only see the tools our professionals use, but they get to touch and use them as well. This component of our program is what makes it truly unique! Trust us, it is a jam-packed 4 days of fun, excitement, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences! Want to see for yourself?

Adventures in Healthcare is a residential program with activities lasting late into the evening and beginning early in the morning. Campers stay on gender-specific floors at Eastern Maine Community College with meals and snacks provided on-site by Chartwells Dining Services.
