Middle school students from across Broome County attended MASH Camp at Wilson Hospital in Johnson City today.

One highlight today was the visit of a medical chopper to the hospital's rooftop helipad.

The camp is designed to introduce kids to potential careers in medicine.

Bogdan Yurkiv, 14, of Vestal says he enjoyed the laboratory science fields such as microbiology and pharmacy.

He says the two-day camp made him even more likely to pursue medicine.

"At the morgue, we got to touch a couple human organs and hold them. We were able to see a lot of the things that doctors do in their day-to-day work," said Yurkiv.

The camp is put on by the Central New York Health Education Center.

Other fields included imaging, ambulatory surgery, the ER and infection control.
