Frequently Asked Questions
We are proud to offer two courses of study for budding veterinarians: Kids Vet Club and Junior Vet Academy.
Kids Vet Club is a great introduction into the world of animal health and husbandry. The two hour classes and summer camp experience cover a range of topics from wellness exams and animal behavior to acupuncture and suture techniques. They provide an excellent foundation for those who want to explore more advanced concepts through Junior Vet Academy. The summer camp offerings take place during the normal camp day. The students will leave their daily groups to participate in the Kids Vet Club activities and then return back to their assigned camp groups.
Junior Vet Academy is for mature students with an active interest in pursuing an animal health or veterinary future. Co-ed commuter day camp as well as overnight girls only sessions are offered. We spend all day immersed in animal health and veterinary related topics. There is fun and engaging mixture of lectures, labs and animal handling experiences. Covid permitting we will also take field trips such as visiting local animal hospitals, animal shelters and teaching facilities. Students need to be able to sit and participate in the lectures and safely work in environments with sharp objects. Please note that we do discuss mature topics such as euthanasia and reproduction. Attendance in Kids Vet Club camp or workshops is encouraged but not required.
The Junior Vet Academy and Kids Vet Club Programs team strives to create an environment in which each and every camper can experience a fun and memorable time on our campus. We promise families that we will promote and maintain a safe, positive environment that encourages self-confidence and personal development while taking part in our camp programs. With this philosophy in mind, if your child has a physical/medical/emotional condition that may require an accommodation in order for him or her to participate in camp and our programing we ask that you contact our Summer Programs Director Carmen Johnson firstname.lastname@example.org, prior to your registration. This contact will allow for the opening of a dialogue to determine whether or not the Kids Vet Club/ Junior Veterinary Academy program(s) will be appropriate for your child.
