Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Students from rural communities toured Sanford Air Med Wednesday as part of their annual hope camp.
H.O.P.E., or health occupations and professions exploration camp, is for high school sophomores to seniors interested in a health related career.
The four day camp runs until the 19th and explores over 20 different career areas; including nursing, pharmacy, and even vet technology.
The camp costs $100 per student, but what they gain from the experience, is priceless.
Susie Munyer/Sanford Comm. Health Improvement Manager: “This is trying to help them discover what they might like or what they absolutely don't like.”
Dana Davis/H.O.P.E. Dir. of Recruitment: “And we've tried to stress that's it's also okay to change your mind. Especially, you know, when you get to college and you might start on one major not knowing a lot about the other ones and you might find out about something along the way and find it's a better fit.”
There are 20 students in the camp this summer.
They'll be exploring occupations from about 7:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. each day.
