2nd Annual 'Scrubs Camp' hosted at MSUM, educates high schoolers on professional health occupations
MOORHEAD—Area teens are picking up the scalpels as they start the Scrubs Camp at MSUM this week. 65 high school students will spend the week talking to professionals in the field, getting an education in biology, psychology and surgical technology. The Scrubs Camp gives teens the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in health occupations. Organizers say one of the best parts for the students is getting to meet new friends who have the same interests. "A lot of these kids didn't know anyone when they showed up yesterday afternoon, and they've already made really cool friends. And when they leave at the end of the week they'll probably have some tears in their eyes, because they're leaving some really cool people," said Isaac Skalsky, Scrubs Camp coordinator. This is the camp's 2nd year at MSUM. The students will be on campus until August 4th.
