BANGOR - School may be out for the summer but that doesn't mean students are taking a break from learning. Over 25 ninth and tenth graders spent last week at Camp Survivor in Bangor, where they got a firsthand look at careers in the health field.

"This is a way to introduce kids to careers they maybe did not think about," said Sheree Tillson, EMHS recruiter. "We've had an occupational therapist teach them how to get dressed using only one hand, a physical therapist showing them the different muscles and activities to treat those muscles, a hygienist demonstrating how to scrape teeth. And we took them to EMMC, where they were able to look at an ultrasound of Jello that had various items in it."
