Virtual Junior MedCamp
Due to public health concerns about the ongoing spread of COVID-19, the Mobile Medical Museum will be offering Junior MedCamp as a virtual camp program this summer.
Now in its fourth year, Junior MedCamp is a fun and interactive educational program designed for children who are curious about the art and science of health care. Activities will include multi-day science experiments, crafts, games, puzzles, short readings, videos and writing prompts.
There will be two week-long sessions:
Each camper will be placed in one of the following tracks, based on their top three preferences, to customize their camp experience:
THE HUMAN BODY
BREAKING BARRIERS IN HEALTH CARE
(WOMEN AND AFRICAN AMERICAN PIONEERS)
GERMS AND DISEASE
MEDICINE IN AMERICA FROM THE TIME OF COLUMBUS
THROUGH THE CIVIL WAR
The tracks will have a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 100 participants. Each day of camp, the camper will participate in a 30-minute Zoom meeting and receive a packet of activities to their preferred email address (estimated completion time for activities is 60 to 90 minutes). Complete the activities to win points and prizes!
The recommended age for Junior MedCamp is 7 to 9 years old, as most of the activities will be designed for this age range. But we will include some activities for 10- to 12-year-olds as well so that older siblings may participate.
The cost of the camp is $25 per child per session for nonmembers ($15 for members). No refunds are allowed.
