MASH Camp is a unique opportunity for students entering grades 8-12 to experience the healthcare world in an interactive way. It provides an opportunity for students to take advantage of and experience the field of healthcare and start their educational pathway in pursuit of a degree. By participating in interactive, hands-on activities that highlight various career opportunities, students learn about the educational requirements, skills, typical job duties and personal qualities of specific health professionals. Involvement in MASH Camp will also increase student awareness and understanding of the hospital setting and structure. Additionally, this program provides students the opportunity to network with healthcare professionals in their community, thus building long-term mentoring relationships. The 3-day sessions (9:00 a.m -3:00 p.m.) will help answer questions and provide students with a path to explore their options thoroughly. Regardless of the hospital placement, each day is different, providing interesting and thought-provoking exercises and real-life activities and experiences.
MASH Camp is offered in the summer at Lewis County General Hospital, Carthage Area Hospital, Samaritan Medical Center, Gouverneur Hospital, River Hospital and SUNY Jefferson. MASH Camp at SUNY Jefferson is a 2-day, lab-based camp that explores Life Sciences through fun and engaging experiments. Students will learn proper lab technique while conducting experiments and activities in microbiology, human anatomy and physiology, blood typing and DNA analysis. Additionally, MASH Camp is offered in February (winter break) at Carthage Area Hospital, Lewis County General Hospital, River Hospital, Gouverneur Hospital and Samaritan Medical Center.
DUE TO COVID-19 COMPLICATIONS, MASH Camps have been postponed during the winter of 2022. Please check back for a possible Summer MASH Camp. Thank you!
