Due to COVID19 precautions, the Summer Camp has been canceled. We regret having to make this decision but the safety of our students is our top priority. Thank you for your kind understanding.

Pre-Med Summer Camp is a week long program designed to enhance one's ability to understand the medical field and to encourage your student's interest in physiology, genetics, immunology and bioinformatics in Medicine. We are excited to host this camp designed to give students the tools they need to prepare for a career in the field of Medicine. Students will experience fun and creative student centered activities and challenges.
