MOORHEAD — Nearly 100 high school students are attending a camp at Minnesota State University Moorhead started to help expose kids to fields in health care.
Scrubs Camp, which started Monday, is a week-long residential camp with classes that include hands-on sessions in dental, nursing and mental health.
Organizers for the camp, which was started four years ago, say the event inspires kids to pursue careers in medical fields while also showcasing the school's programs.
"We do feel that we're serving its purpose, its mission of getting youth excited about career possibilities in the health care industry," said Megan Adamczyk, a K-12 Collaboration Manager for Healthforce Minnesota, a co-sponsor for the camp.
It costs $480 to take part in Scrubs Camp, but there are scholarships available for students that can demonstrate a financial need, according to the program's website.
