Now in its fourth year, Junior MedCamp is Mobile's only healthcare-themed summer camp for young children. Junior MedCamp offers five full days of STEM activities designed for the interests and activity levels of children ages 7 to 9 who are curious about medicine.
For 2020, Junior MedCamp will take place at the Mobile Medical Museum July 6-10, 8:00 am to 3:30 pm.
Up to 20 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 body, and how common instruments such as the stethoscope and the blood pressure monitor are used. They will build models, text and observe chemical reactions, 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.
