CDC offers summer camps focused on public health

February 15, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

For kids interested in the science of protecting public health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is offering three camps this summer:

Disease Detective Camp is a one-week camp for rising  high-school juniors and seniors.

Junior Disease Detective Camp is a 3-day camp for rising 7th and 8th graders.

Epi Intense is a 3-day camp for rising juniors and seniors.

In all CDC camps, students learn about the work done at the CDC to protect public health. Disease Detective Camp (and its junior version) take a broad view of the Center’s overall work, while Epi Intense focuses in on epidemiology, the science of collecting and analyzing public health data.

Applications are due April 6. The programs are free, but admission is not guaranteed, as the application process is competitive.
