VHHA is no longer supporting health career camp programs with funds, however many VHHA members are still hosting camps based on the community’s demand.
Camp leaders are available to speak about their experiences. Please feel free to contact them or Barbara Brown, VHHA, via e-mail or by phone at (804) 965-5722.
VHHA has a couple articles for new or prospective camp leaders detailing What We Learned at Summer Camp and How to Host a Summer Health Career Camp. Does the camp experience make a difference? Read From Camp to Career, how health care summer camps changed their futures.
Successful camp experiences can positively influence students’ perceptions about health careers, remove misconceptions about the field, and increase their interest in choosing a health career.
