CampMed’s mission is to provide an opportunity for high school students faced with socioeconomic barriers to learn more about healthcare careers and how to pursue a higher education. We are an educational enrichment program that encompasses a unique three-day camp experience and subsequent mentorship program. UCLA students act as camp counselors and long-term mentors for the high school students, providing support for their academic and extracurricular success. Our camp consists of hands-on medical workshops, team building and leadership activities, higher education workshops (applying to college, financial aid, A-G requirements), as well as career panel discussions with healthcare professionals and students. We want to give high school students the opportunity to explore many healthcare careers and to discover their interests in the field through various school events throughout the year as well as a weekend camp event during the spring quarter.
