Our Veterinary Enrichment Camp is held each Summer for children ages 12-18 with an interest in veterinary medicine & animal care. Students must submit an application along with a written paragraph by our application due date. Our students go through an enrollment process, including interviews, & are selected based on knowledge, interest, maturity & commitment. All camp attendees are paired with another student for their week-long camp session. Each camper receives a free camp t-shirt & gets the opportunity to work in all departments at our hospital. Students will be educated in topics such as:

  • Animal Husbandry
  • Walking & feeding animals
  • Cleaning enclosures
  • Obtaining vitals
  • Pharmacology
  • Medical records
  • Animal restraint
  • Animal grooming & bathing
  • Surgery
