Pre-Vet Science Day Camp
Do you ever wonder what it takes to care for animals or to become a vet? At Pre-Vet Science Camp you will get to find out by doing hands-on activities that include helping an equine vet exam on a live horse; using microscopes to identify parasites that harm our pets, giving injections, and learning how to give stitches, visiting a veterinary hospital/clinic, participating in mock surgery, diagnosing while running a mock animal hospital, making safe animal toys, learning animal training and more. Fee includes a professional custom scrub top!

 

Vet Science Day Camp
Vet Science Camp girls get to go off-site for most of their activities such as touring the VA-MD School of Veterinary Sciences at Virginia Tech, attending a live surgery, participating in a service project at a local shelter, shadowing careers at a local zoo, and much more. Fee includes a professional custom scrub top! Please register early as this camp fills up quickly.
