Golden Bear Pharmacy Summer Camps

2019 Golden Bear Summer Camp: June 24–28, 2019
8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (lunch is provided)

Interested in learning about the field of Pharmacy? Join us for a FREE week-long summer camp experience for high school students who want to learn about careers in pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences through hands-on learning experiences.

The day camp is open to high school students who demonstrate strong academic skills and an interest in pharmacy or the pharmaceutical sciences.  A goal of this camp is to share this opportunity with as many different students possible.  As such, students may only attend this camp one time. We will enroll Juniors and Seniors first, then underclassmen. We typically enroll 50 students for the week- long day camp.

We also have a limited enrollment, one-day program which has been tentatively scheduled for July 9, 2018. During this day long experience, students will have similar hands-on experiences designed to foster interest in the field of pharmacy. Lunch will be provided.

Purpose: The Golden Bear Pharmacy Summer Camp was created to foster a positive relationship with our local community amongst diverse populations of students. This includes diversity in race/ethnicity, religious beliefs, political affiliations, gender, and inclusion of students with disabilities. We want to utilize our resources to raise awareness of the various careers represented by the Western New England University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, in addition to other careers within the health sciences. Hopefully, this commitment will lead to greater diversity within the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the profession of pharmacy.
