STEM-Health Career Summer Camps
for Middle School Students!

NNH AHEC offers Health Careers Summer Camp for middle school students who would like the opportunity to explore various health careers. The STEM-Health Career Camps are day camps. Attendees will explore various health career options by participating in hands-on activities, workshops, and field trips.

NNH AHEC collaborates with the Hugh J. Gallen Career and Technical Center in Littleton and the White Mountains Community College in Berlin to offer two dynamic, hands-on experiences for middle school students at week-long summer camps. Students who attend NNH AHEC's summer camps get to explore different health and STEM careers through use of state-of-the-art dental and medical simulators; they get the opportunity to learn from current health professionals who present at the camps; and students also have the opportunity to network with their peers from around the North Country.
