Augusta Health Summer Camp Teaches Kids about Medical Field

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -

Some Shenandoah Valley kids are getting a jump start on careers in the medical field.

Augusta Health is hosting middle school students this week for its annual summer camp, where they’ll get a chance to learn from doctors and other experts at the hospital.

Wednesday's activities focused on nutrition. Organizers say it's a chance for kids to start figuring out whether it's a field they're interested in.

“These students all think that they are interested in health care but this week gives them a chance to kind of check it out a little bit and see if they are interested. It gives them a chance to talk to medical professionals and ask them questions. It gives them a chance to do a lot of hands-on activities,” said Lisa Schwenk, director of communications for Augusta Health.

The camp started Wednesday and runs through Friday.

This is the third year Augusta Health has hosted middle-schoolers.
