FISHERSVILLE, Va. -- Augusta Health hosted its third annual camp for students in middle school considering health careers.

The camp called Augusta Health Career Explorers exposes students from the area to medical careers and gives them a taste of what professionals do.

Thirty-six students from Staunton, Waynesboro and Augusta County participated in the three day camp.

On Monday, campers learned about blood pressure and CPR.

Sarah Brown is one of the campers. She said many people go to college without knowing what their career is about.

"It's good to start early and know if you want to continue on with that career or if you want to do something different," said Brown.

She said many members of her family are in health careers. Teachers at the camp encourage students to keep up good grades. The event will run until Wednesday.
