Middle School Student registration open for Littleton STEM-Health Careers Summer Camp

Are you the parent of a middle school student? Are you looking for a different kind of summer camp this year?

The North Country Health Consortium and the Hugh J. Gallen Career and Technical Center are pleased to invite middle school students to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics with a Health Careers twist (STEM-Health Careers Summer Camp). The Littleton STEM-Health Careers Summer Camp is open to students who have completed seventh or eighth grade. Space is limited so early registration is essential.

This week-long STEM-Health Career Camp will be held each day from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Hugh J. Gallen Career and Technical Center in Littleton during the week of July 24-28. Attendees of the STEM-Health Careers Summer Camp will be given hands-on career exploration opportunities, including the use of state-of-the-art dental and medical simulators, various workshops and presentations with health professionals, and a comprehensive hospital tour experience.

The focus of the STEM-Health Career Summer Camp initiative is to provide students with a low-cost, local opportunity to explore a vast array of health careers. Participating in this hands-on, interactive camp is a fun experience that will allow students to explore different health professions with the hope that they may further pursue a career in the field. Developing interest at the middle school level allows students to gain a broad understanding of the potential opportunities that exist in the field.

The Northern New Hampshire Area Health Education Center, a program of the North Country Health Consortium, and the Hugh J. Gallen Career & Technical Center sponsor the STEM-Health Camp.
