Franklin Community Health Network will once again host a Summer Scrub Club Camp taking place June 19–21 from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. at Franklin Memorial Hospital (FMH).

A sampling of careers explored may include: physical therapy, sports medicine, nursing, orthopedics, medical lab science, community health, dentistry, and emergency medical services.


Campers will have the opportunity to participate in unique hands-on activities and demonstrations such as casting, suturing, first aid, lab analysis, and emergency response to a mock accident. All campers will receive certification in American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR and First Aid.


The cost for the camp is $40 and includes lunch each day. For more information or to register, contact the Education Department at 779-2831 or email
