Findlay Summer camps 2021

Students participate in the University of Findlay’s Pharmacy Summer Camp.

FINDLAY — The University of Findlay is offering a number of summer camps:

• High school juniors and seniors are invited to attend the 14th annual Pharmacy Summer Camp.

Camps are June 20-23 and July 25-28.

The overnight camps will take place on campus. All meals and snacks will be provided. Each camp has availability for 50 students. Cost is $350 per student.

Faculty will lead hands-on experiential learning sessions and learn about medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, compounding and research. Activities will include medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, pharmacy calculations and pharmacokinetics, hospital pharmacy, therapeutics, compounding, research, and gaming and pharmacy.

Seniors may interview for Findlay’s pharmacy program, which is one of the few in the country that includes a direct-entry pathway in the program from high school.

• The Well Theology Camp is slated for July 18-24.

This transformative, week-long experience is designed for high school students and gives them an opportunity to explore their faith while experiencing college life.

The Well offers students an opportunity to explore options in an open and non-denominational environment. While the Well is Christian-based, students of all faiths and traditions are welcome.

Daily activities include an evening worship, breakout sessions where students are encouraged to share experiences, strengths, weaknesses, and personal barriers, volunteer work for local charities and personal testimonies from guest speakers.
