Dakota County Scrubs Day Camps

Since 2008, the ultimate goal of Scrubs Camp has been to get students excited and interested in pursuing a career in the health sciences, and to go back home motivated and focused about what they can do in middle and high school to prepare for that potential career.

Students get to interact directly with many working professionals in the field and through field trips, get a tour and experience of what it would be like to work in a particular career field.

Each year there's a new theme for Scrubs Camp with some core sessions being repeated year to year. Students attending camp this year may be exposed to slightly different types of labs and equipment/instruments than students who attended the year before.
