For many kids, summertime is about having fun at summer camps, and Lake Superior College is holding a variety of exploratory options to open a world of career opportunities to middle schoolers. This week, over 60 students are attending a Scrubs Camp to see what a future in a healthcare field would be like.

The 11 to 14-year-olds spent two days exploring a variety of healthcare related careers including nursing, laboratory science, social work and more. Members of the Lake Superior College Health & Nursing Division helped the students experience the careers through field trips and hands-on activities.

On Wednesday, Northland students took part in a crash simulation where they witnessed what Emergency Responders do during a crash, and how patients are treated.

"What they see in today's car crash extrication and care of patients might spark in them what they want to do," Jacquie Semaan said.  Semaan is a nursing instructor at Lake Superior College. 

"We have had participants in the past, one individual specifically, who is now going to go to school to be a speech pathologist because she was in a session that sparked a passion and an interest," Semaan added.

This Scrubs Camp is sponsored by St. Luke’s and Essentia Health and is part of seven other free summer career camps being organized by Lake Superior College. Some of the other camps being offered include aviation, cybersecurity, firefighting and manufacturing. Organizers say more than 250 campers are expected to attend these camps in June.  Visit Lake Superior College for more information.
