Conquer the great outdoors!

Camp participants will role-play emergency situations in the wild and learn how to prepare for natural disasters. These future emergency medics will learn about snake bites, hypothermia, tourniquets, poisonous plants, edible plants, distress signals, forest fires, tornadoes, mosquito bites, and more.

This is an experience full of STEM-based learning, activities and crafts.

The students in our mixed-age group classroom are divided into:

Interns: 4-7 years old

Residents: 8-12 years old

Full-day and half-day options are available (9 am - 12 pm).

🩺 The camp concludes with a graduation ceremony where each student receives a personalized diploma.

🩺 The education is based on STEM principles. It ignites the passion of future healthcare heroes and gets them excited about how the body works and the importance of health.

🩺 Every day your child will return home with materials to show you what they learned. Students will be provided with all the necessary materials for each class.

🩺 The curriculum is written by board-certified physicians and experts in child education.

🩺 Our instructors are well-trained, and they have an interest in health sciences and education. They will deliver fun, engaging and interactive content. All our instructors have provided a vulnerable sector check.

🩺 Your child will make new friends as lots of our activities involve teamwork, role-playing and collaboration.

🩺 Your child will have an unforgettable summer filled with lots of fun, fun ...and fun! 🤩
