About Our Camps

Established in 2001 the University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences offers summer camps for high school students interested in pharmacy and the pharmaceutical sciences.To be eligible to attend camp, applicants must have completed their freshman year of high school at the time of the camp and plan to be enrolled in high school for the 2020 -2021 school year.

Following the COVID-19 (coronavirus) update provided by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, UToledo is taking action to reduce exposure risk for the safety of our faculty, staff, students and campus visitors. Therefore, we will be canceling the 2020 College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences Summer Camp.

Visit utoledo.edu/coronavirus for the most up-to-date University information on the coronavirus.

Thank you for your continued support of UToledo. We hope to see you at next year's camp!


Walgreens Pharmacy Practice Camp

Pharmacy Summer Camp is sponsored by Walgreens and supported by Rite Aid. We have so much to show you about this exciting profession with various hands-on, interactive activities. Pharmacy Summer Camp activities include pharmaceutical science and formulation labs, faculty presentations and activities, student discussions, and career panels. Campers spend free time at the UT Rec Center with enthusiastic camp counselors who are current UT Pharmacy students. They also explore UT's campuses and take a field trip off campus. See the Schedule of Events for more details. 

The $400 summer camp fee includes all room and meal expenses and all scheduled camp activities.  Students stay in a campus residence hall with camp counselors (one counselor for every 8 students).  Participants are responsible for transportation to and from The University of Toledo. 

Because of generous camp sponsorship by Walgreens, need-based financial assistance is often available for students meeting federal free- or reduced-school lunch requirements or ACT/SAT fee waiver requirements, or with a letter from a school counselor attesting to financial need. Students are asked to apply for a camp fee waiver by mailing a copy of the letter granting free- or reduced-school lunch or test fee waivers, or by providing a letter from a school counselor, by the application deadline.
