~Camp Medicine~

Via the grapevine is the usual way I learn about the comings and goings of my extended family.  But yesterday I read in my hometown's online newspaper that this summer a niece of mine, a high school sophomore, will be attending an interesting sounding camp that I have never heard of.  The name of the camp is Camp Medicine. I thought I would pass the information along in case anyone else is interested.

Camp Medicine is a 10 day pre-medical or pre-veterinary program for high school students at St. George's University in Grenada, West Indies.  It is for students who are interested in becoming doctors or veterinarians.  I understand the cost is $1600 and includes housing, meals, medical instruction, activities and transportation while there.  Some extracurricular activities include visiting a rainforest, scuba diving, whale watching, and hiking.

The weather in Grenada reaches about 85 during the daytime.  If you are going, take a good sunscreen since you'll be a mere 12 degrees north of the equator!

Hi Dale, It does sound good, doesn't it.  I will report back at the end of the summer.

OH SHirley, my oldest grandson is thinking Doctor, and the middle one is thinking Marine Biologist, so I will have to keep this information around abit.  Older grandson is 13 now so not too long for him. I wonder if grandmama could come as a chaperone? ;)

Hi Gail, I was wondering about chaperones, as well.  Surely they have chaperones.  I think that would be a great experience/vacation for you and your grandson.

Hi Shirley, Now this sounds like a wonderful experience for your niece and I'm sure something she will never forget. There seem to be a lot more opportunities these days, than from what I remember!!

Hi Mary, There are tons more opportunities for young people these days than when I was in high school.  But we still had lots of fun.
