Medical Adventure Camp

This day camp, sponsored by the Service League Volunteers, Children's Miracle Network, SVMHS, and individual donors, provides an up close and personal look at the many career and volunteer opportunities in health care. Medical Adventure Camp was established at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital in 2001 to help introduce participants to medicine and health careers in a fun camp format. Participants learn about a variety of health-related topics in interactive classes and activities. Student volunteers help guide the campers, while hospital staff and physicians present the lessons and activities.

To date, over 200 adventurous youth, 4th-6th-grade students, have been able to participate. The camp is scheduled for the last two weeks of July from 9:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. Up to 20 participants are accepted annually, and scholarships are available to children whose families cannot afford the $200 enrollment fee. Please call 831-755-0772 or email volunteer@svmh.com for more information.
