M.A.S.H. Camp at UHS
Students entering 8th and 9th grade this fall will have the opportunity to spend two days in the world of hospital healthcare this summer.
Join us at M.A.S.H. Camp, two exciting days at a hands-on hospital camp on July 15 and 16 at UHS Wilson Medical Center.
UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital hosts M.A.S.H. Camp on Tuesday, August 5th and Wednesday, August 6th .
M.A.S.H. stands for Medical Academy of Science and Health. This two-day camp is sponsored by UHS and the Central New York Area Health Education Center (CNYAHEC). The two organizations have partnered on this initiative to address their mutual goal to help alleviate the shortage of health professionals by encouraging young people to explore health careers.
M.A.S.H. Camp will highlight a variety of careers through fun, hands-on workshops for students, including lots of attention from dedicated health professionals. All campers will receive hospital scrubs to wear each day at camp, breakfast and lunch, a tee shirt, and education materials.
The camp fee is $35 per student at UHS Wilson Medical Center, and $20 per student at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital. CNYAHEC is pleased to offer scholarships to those students who need assistance with the registration fee.
Applications for both sites will be determined by a selection process. The deadline for applying is Friday, May 2nd. Students can access the online application by visiting the CNYAHEC website: www.cnyahec.org.
