Applications are available to high school students for the summer M*A*S*H camps. Southeast Arkansas camps will be held at DeWitt, June 12-23; Dumas, June 5-16; Lake Village, June 5-16; Pine Bluff, June 12-23; and Warren, July 10-21.
The Medical Applications of Science for Health camps will be located at 32 medical facilities in Arkansas. The events are designed to expose high school juniors and seniors to healthcare-related vocations.
“The M*A*S*H program gives students an inside look at various medical professions and is designed to spark students’ interest in the medical field,” said Jennifer Victory, Director of Rural Health for Arkansas Farm Bureau. “A large number of the camps are held at rural medical centers and attract local students with a rural background.”
County Farm Bureau organizations and the M*A*S*H Partnership sponsor students so they may attend the camps free. The partnership includes the University of Arkansas for Medical Science’s Regional Centers, Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Arkansas Farm Bureau and Baptist Health.
Applications are available through school guidance counselors, by contacting the M*A*S*H director in the area or by visiting www.arkansashealthcareers.com/summer-camps/.
