Dear Dr. Amanda, I hope you are well! I attended the JVA camp this summer and I had so much fun! I wanted to say thank you, and I learned so much! I was at a good friend’s house, and one of their dogs got into a bag of chocolate. Thanks to your lessons, I used hydrogen peroxide to make her throw up! I hope you have a great rest of your summer! - Sophie
"Our son Sammy had a wonderful time with you at the vet in a training class. A thousand thanks for providing such amazing educational opportunities to Sammy and our community." -Whitney W.S.
"The session was wonderful and left a significant impression on our daughter. She told us in great detail about giving shots, using a stethoscope on a horse, and suturing her banana. Your session was her first experience realizing this is something she can actually do and be good at. We can't thank you enough for what it meant for our daughter." -Mike D.
"Your young vet workshop was a fantastic experience for both of our children. We cannot wait to send them again for more workshops on your farm!" -Claudia C.

I just wanted to thank you for such a great camp experience for Izzy. Dr. Amanda, I didn’t realize that it was you when I picked up Izzy & Kate, or I would have thanked you personally!! They were yelling goodbyes to the animals as we drove by the farm. You have a wonderful place and we thank you for sharing it with kids.
Izzy doesn’t feel that strongly about becoming a vet but she certainly learned a lot there. And obviously made some great friends!
The girls informed me that they will be back next year and have planned for the first available week so that the group can be together again!

My son has signed up for all of the available weekend vet clinic programs. He was absolutely over the moon after the first one where he had the opportunity to learn skills and interact with the animals. They also have excellent COVID protocols and are very safe making the sessions happen. After this hectic and turbulent year, this has been the one activity that he has been able to do and it has ignited a passion and excitement that I have not seen in any other activity. Dr. Amanda is a creative and inspiring teacher who shares her passion and compassion for animals with the next generation of stewards. Thank you!
Our granddaughter attended the kid's vet club and Junior Vet academy with Dr. Amanda last summer. We were so pleased with the balance of learning and just good ole summer fun. The staff was amazing and our granddaughter who is 10 still smiles whenever we bring up her summer experience. We hope and plan on sending her back!
