Anatomy & Physiology Camp 1
Eligibility: rising 9th-12th grade in fall, 2013
Camp fee: $1100 residential, $950 day camp
The Appalachian State University Department of Health, Leisure and Exercise Science is pleased to offer 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.
For 2013, there will be two regular, one-week sessions, and also a one-week session for an advanced camp. The information below is for the standard Anatomy and Physiology Camp, either the week of June 9-15, or the week of June 16-22.
We will 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
