What is Healthcare Career Exploring?

Health Care Career Exploring is a hands-on program open to young men and women from the 6th grade to 20 years old with an interest in learning more about careers in the field of health care. If this is something that interests you long-term, we would suggest enrolling in one of our year-round Health Care Explorer Posts at any of your local hospitals. Please contact Will Montanaro for more information at William.Montanaro@scouting.org.  

At Healthcare Explorer Camp You Will:

Start your day at QHSR with hands-on projects to give you a real feel for whether this career is the right one for you, including CPR, First Aide, lifesaving in our beautiful pool; some days we will take a van to visit local medical centers, as well as the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and Rutgers School of Nursing.

During the week, you will have an opportunity to network with professionals who work in healthcare careers every day – they are using the latest technology, they are aware of emerging trends, they know what it takes to get into college for their specific career.

You will learn about the educational requirements for a career in Healthcare and will receive tangible advice on steps you could take now to prepare and position yourself for a successful career in the field of Healthcare.
