The first Career Craze Summer Camp will be offered for middle school students ages 12-15 grades sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth at the Licking Valley Campus Extension of Maysville Community and Technical College.
Career Craze will be held July 29-Aug. 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The camp is free.
During day one of Career Craze, students will learn CPR, Heimlich and other first aid techniques.
Students will also be given an ambulance tour.
During day 2, students will be exploring pharmacy and dentistry.
They will learn correct flossing procedures and effective brushing.
During day 3, students will explore physical therapy and the benefits of massage therapy.
Students will have the opportunity to learn about many exercises that are beneficial to specific muscle groups.
On the last day, students will receive a tour of Harrison Memorial Hospital and hear from speakers in this career path. They will examine the possibilities of training for several of the health career occupations.
“Students in this age group are thinking about what might lie out there in front of them. In fact, adults often ask them, ‘What are you going to do when you grow up?’” said K. Bruce Florence. “They have many questions with many different answers. Career Craze this year will give them the opportunity to investigate the possibilities of earning a living in the health field.”
Kentucky’s Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, is the honorary chair of the Career Craze initiative.
All 16 KCTCS colleges will host two camps this summer. Students will learn hands on about occupations in business and industry and how it leads to a high-wage, high-demand career.
