Scrubs Camp 2020

COVID-19 Update:

5/13/2020:

We will be launching our Scrubs Online summer 2020 program on June 15.  This is a free program due to our sudden cancellation concerning COVID-19.  At Scrubs Online, students will learn at their own pace to explore five highly needed careers in Minnesota: Licensed Practical Nurse, Emergency Medical Service careers, Radiological Technician, Surgical First Technician, and Phlebotomist.  

Live Q&A sessions will be hosted once a week starting July 6.  Live sessions will be presented by healthcare professionals that are currently working in the topic-presented field.  Students will interact with EMS, PT/OT, Resp. Therapy, Pharmacists, Physician Assistant, and Vet Science professionals.

There are many other resources for you to explore with our Scrubs Online program.  From Minnesota colleges and universities campus virtual tours to getting started in a healthcare career.  You do not want to miss out on this new program offering!

4/1/2020:

All Scrubs Camps have been cancelled for 2020, however we are working to provide a virtual option to adhere to social distancing measures.  

Key factors on cancelling in-person Scrubs Camps include:

    • Concern for camper and camp staff health
    • Planning concerns given the healthcare system’s need to focus on COVID-19 which likely results in decreased access to presenters and field trips, and the need to allow providers to focus on all energy toward healthcare delivery
    • Reports that this virus season may extend well into the summer

All payments will be refunded 100%.  Please be patient as communications are released throughout this entire process.

We will be hosting in-person Scrubs Camps again in Summer 2021.


Wondering what to expect at Scrubs Camp?  Each year we have a new theme to talk about trending healthcare careers in Minnesota.  You can also view our 2019 schedules below and simply click "2019 Schedule".  Please note that schedules differ year-to-year, with some repeated sessions.  If you are wondering about camp specific information, please contact the email attached to that camp.
