Pharmacy Summer Camps Accepting Applications

Applications are now being accepted for the college’s summer camps. The Walgreens Pharmacy Practice Camp and the Shimadzu Pharmaceutical Science Camp, also supported by Amway, are open to high school students with an interest in pharmacy or research.

The Walgreens Pharmacy Practice Camp focuses on the profession of pharmacy, introducing students to the life of a pharmacy practitioner. Campers shadow pharmacists in various settings and participate in labs and presentations to familiarize them with the demands and rewards of pharmacy school. The camp has been sponsored by Walgreens for over a decade, and many of our alumni were first introduced to the profession through the camp experience.

The Shimadzu Pharmaceutical Science Camp, the college’s newest camp program, introduces students to the sciences that underlie pharmacy. Students are introduced to the college’s state-of-the-art research facilities through laboratory explorations, and they learn about the myriad career options available to pharmaceutical scientists. The camp is sponsored by Shimadzu, a leader in the production of scientific instruments, and supported by Amway.

For more information about the college’s Pharmacy Camps, please visit the Pharmacy Camp page on the college’s website.
