Now in its third year, Junior MedCamp is the only healthcare-themed summer camp for young children in the Gulf Coast region. Junior MedCamp offers a dynamic, hands-on camp experience for children who are curious about medicine. Junior MedCamp offers five full days of STEM activities designed for the interests and activity levels of children ages 6 to 8.
For 2019, Junior MedCamp will take place at the Mobile Medical Museum July 8-12, 8:00 am to 3:30 pm.
Up to 25 campers will participate in games, experiments, and storytelling as we investigate topics such as how germs cause illness, the anatomy and function of the human skeleton, and how common instruments such as the stethoscope and the blood pressure monitor are used. They will build models, perform dissections, use microscopes to examine cell structures, and experience hands-on learning about medicinal plants in the Museum’s Robert Thrower Medicinal Garden. They will also learn about proper techniques of infant care by handling a lifelike manikin.
Camp activities will be led by Museum staff, with the assistance of experienced science educators from the community.
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR JUNIOR MEDCAMP.
