Programming features a unique blend of classroom and immersion activities (math, science, study skills, healthcare, admissions/financial aid, tours of local health facilities as available, and career sessions) designed to increase access to educational and employment opportunities.

The Allen College Summer Health Careers Camp provides high school students with opportunities to learn about nursing and health careers programs. Participants focus on improving math and literacy skills, test-taking, and overall preparation for college. Hands-on activities are the foundation of the camp, along with field trips to area health care facilities and higher education institutions. The camp has inspired numerous students to pursue their passion in health care.
