Camp Testimonials

“I loved hearing from college nursing students at camp. It gave me a chance to ask specific questions about their clinical health care experiences.”

“I liked witnessing the demonstrations that they showed and taught us at camp. I believe that for those going into the medical field they should be predisposed to these kinds of things, and they will not find these experiences anywhere else.”
