Campers learn about the life of surgeons, how operations are performed, and are exposed to important life saving techniques of first aid. Numerous hands-on projects include using medical instruments, triage and diagnosis, and how to give a shot. We will learn about surgical procedures, investigate the structures, physiology and variations of the human body, examine causes and treatment of disease, heart surgery and emergency medicine, review herbal medicine and healthy choices for food/ lifestyle. Projects include: Sheep heart dissection, setting broken bones, designing a knee brace, suturing a wound, building a lung model, learning first aid techniques and splinting, discovering bacteria, and examining pathology slides under a microscope. Each camper will receive a stethoscope, dissection kit, first aid supplies and take their “Medical Boards” at the end of the week to receive their certificate.
