Camper Testimonial

Joe Lovati is a sophomore at Lutheran High School North in Macomb, Mich. After attending the 2014 Career Exploration Summer Camp, he realized he wanted to pursue a career in the medical field.

"I signed up for the camp because I wanted to be more knowledgeable about a larger variety of careers. My favorite part of OU’s camp was visiting the hospital, because I acquired a better understanding of how a hospital operates and maintains organization. The camp helped me understand which classes are better to take to pursue a career in the medical field."

OU is committed to nurturing our college-bound high school students who will lead our future. Help offset the cost for a worthy teen who wishes to attend a career exploration summer camp in Macomb or St. Clair County.
