The Appalachian State University Department of Health, Leisure and Exercise Science offers an intense and rewarding summer residential or day camp experience in Anatomy and Physiology! Set in the mountains of western North Carolina, on the beautiful campus of Appalachian State University, this one-week camp will provide high school students with hands-on experience studying the major organ systems of the body, as well as discussion about diseases and injuries that affect these systems.
We work with each student to broaden their understanding of basic sciences and health sciences. There are no prerequisites except a strong interest in the sciences and adequate science and math background to understand the labs and lectures. After each full day of exploration in the Science of Anatomy and Physiology, evening group activities are offered under the supervision of the college-student counselors.
During the six-day camp experience, students will be introduced to a host of health related careers while they participate in activities such as:
• Introduction to the skeleton and human anatomy
• Introduction to surgery, suturing, and injections
• Working with microscopes
• The cardio-vascular system
• Pulmonary tests, and experience with ECG, BP, and HR
• Animal eye, kidney, and heart dissection
• The urinary system and urine analysis
• The endocrine system and blood glucose testing
This camp is for high school students (rising 9th through 12th grade). Only 25 students will be accepted into the program. If you have a science aptitude, and are considering a future in any field of health science, this camp is for you!
All camp attendees are required to participate in all aspects and activities of the Anatomy and Physiology Camp. Activities include the following (but are not limited to): exposure to human cadavers, animal organ dissections, blood and bodily fluids, etc. Discretion should be used to determine if camp attendees are prepared for such activities.
