Athletic Training Camp

June 27 - July 1, 2016

At Athletic Training Camp you will learn the basic concepts and the advanced techniques of the athletic training profession. You will be instructed in the skills of injury prevention, injury evaluation and diagnosis, rehabilitation, and functional injury progression. The concepts taught by our accredited program faculty in the classroom will be reinforced in the laboratory setting that very day. Campers will have the opportunity to complete numerous hands on skills and will be instructed on the most current techniques related to all forms of sports medicine and healthcare. Finally, camp participants have the opportunity to gain their CPR for the Professional Rescuer certification as part of our offerings on the final day. This track will take place on Friday morning and campers will pay an additional $30.

The Athletic Training Camp is sponsored by the Department of Kinesiology and Allied Health.

Athletic Training Camp is open to Christian students entering 10th through 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering a career in athletic training.
