Summer Programs


Give the devices a rest and send your kids to “Mini Med School” this summer. Little Medical School of Manhattan offers one-of-a-kind medical summer camps for kids in Manhattan and throughout the Metroplex. We take kids ages 4-12 through a hands-on exploration of the medical field, teaching the basics of healthcare and first aid, all about human organ systems, and how to respect and understand medicine.

Plus lots more! Through our programs they can learn:

  • All about the brain, spine, eyes, ears, skeleton and muscles
  • What our bodies do with food and why we eat
  • How to apply basic first aid
  • How to read a prescriptions and how pharmacies work
  • When and how to call poison control and dealing with poisonings
  • How to perform CPR and the Heimlich maneuver*
  • How to read X-Rays and treat broken bones
  • Basic pet care, how to examine for ticks and simple suturing
  • Even how a common surgery is performed!

Each program is led by one or more of our passionate educators. At the end of every program, our "future doctors" get to take home their Doctor’s Bag and keep all the fun activities they performed throughout the program. We even host an exciting graduation at the end of each program.

*Our program does not offer CPR certification
