Published DateLACONIA — Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) is offering a SCRUBS summer program specifically geared for 7th and 8th graders interested in health care careers.
"The participating campers had a wonderful experience and wanted to come back again for more," says LRCC camp coordinator, Linda Ferruolo. "The college took a year off due to construction and the time allotment has provided the opportunity to retune the summer program to be more inclusive incorporating more of what LRCC has to offer. This summer the 7th and 8th graders can explore many more career paths and learn what it takes to become a business person, a chef, an automotive or marine mechanic, a computer programmer, and much, much more!"
The program is being offered during the week of July 8th-15th. Current college students will be helping as camp counselors, and will be actively participating in the small group activities planned throughout the week.
To apply, students will be asked to fill out an application and to write a short essay describing why they would like to attend the camp. A selection committee will then review the applications and notify students of their acceptance into the program. The fee for the week-long camp is $125 and can be paid upon acceptance.
To obtain an application, students should check with their school's guidance counselor or contact Ferruolo at Lakes Region Community College at 524-3207 ext. 6718.
