Little Medical School is about engaging campers in an inspirational journey which not only allows them to “look” like a healthcare professional, but to use real tools like real doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and veterinarians use. And they perform unique activities that are carefully designed by our educational staff that mimic what real healthcare professionals do. 

In addition to inspiring children to see themselves in healthcare careers, we teach them real life skills. Campers learn what to do if there is a medical emergency, how to use a first aid kit, and how to prevent hypothermia. We also stress the importance of health care professionals being role models. That means taking care of yourself… eating right, exercising, getting immunizations, and not smoking. 

We are dedicated to our mission of inspiring and shaping tomorrow’s healthcare professionals today through our after-school programs, summer camps, birthday parties, special programs and our award-winning line of educational toys. My greatest hope is that future medical, nursing, veterinarian, and pharmacy school classes will be filled with our Little Medical/Dental School graduates!
