Misericordia University recently hosted rising high school juniors and seniors on campus for a series of seven Career Exploration Camps in order to provide them an opportunity to experience and learn more about exciting professions and residential life on a college campus.

The Career Exploration Camps at Misericordia University are a popular destination for students who want to explore both college campus life and a potential career. The university offers academic camps in biology, chemistry-biochemistry sciences, communications and media, literature, nursing, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology. Space is limited in each camp and registration is necessary.

The Occupational Therapy Camp for rising high school seniors provides extensive hands-on experience in an exciting health care specialty field. It gives students an opportunity to learn about the occupational therapy profession, meet faculty and students in the academic department, and tour clinical sites in northeastern Pennsylvania where occupational therapists practice. Community site visits allow students to observe the wide range of services offered by therapists, including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, hospital treatments, and pediatric services.
