“I chose EMCC for affordability. I saved between $40-50k by starting my education here. I was debt-free six months after graduation. My classes were also full of non-traditional students, which gave me a perspective and value that I may have missed out on elsewhere.”
Adventures in Healthcare Sign-Up
Test Drive a Career in Healthcare!
Unfortunately, due to the impact of COVID-19, we will not be able to host camp this summer. The planning team feels that making this choice now is the best thing we can do. We are saddened by this choice, but we are looking forward to a better than ever camp in the Summer of 2021.
Eastern Maine Community College Campus
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!
Adventures in Healthcare is a unique four-day overnight camping experience for high school students that allows them to “test drive” careers in healthcare. Campers will be introduced to a variety of healthcare professions, including (but not limited to):
