Burns, Oregon: Find your future in healthcare and have serious fun at MedQuest Camp

High Desert Partnership and Northeast Oregon AHEC are thrilled to offer a new camp in Harney County this summer! Along with partners at Harney District Hospital, other local facilities, and amazing staff, campers are sure to improve their understanding of careers in healthcare care. They will enhance their knowledge of frontier medicine, all while having an amazing time and making new friends.

This 5-day, 4-night camp is designed for rural, frontier, and urban students from Oregon. Campers will have job shadows, learn how to take vitals and other clinical skills, hear from current healthcare professionals and students in healthcare education programs, and participate in a multitude of hands-on activities.

Highlights include:

  • Three job shadows in healthcare
  • Mentorship from Camp Director, Counselors, and healthcare professionals
  • Daily emphasis on team building
  • Hands-on experiences to learn clinical skills
  • Community barbeque on a local ranch
