Future Vet Kids Camp is an exciting veterinary-inspired face-to-face and virtual school holiday program that caters to kids aged 9 to 16 years, and encourages responsible pet ownership, the profession of veterinary medicine and a love and appreciation of all animals and their habitats!
The Sydney camp will be held at Waverley College in Waverley on Jan 9 - 13 and 16 – 20, 2023. A Virtual Online Camp will run concurrently to the HQ Sydney Camp with the ability for kids to join the classroom virtually and participate with questions in real time.
Campers learn about different animal-related professions, genetic diseases, pet nutrition, exotic animals, surgery, animal rescue and wildlife conservation. Plus, they visit state-of-the-art veterinary hospitals for exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences and many other exciting excursions!
The camp also features presenters who are experts in ultrasound, surgical, reptiles, grooming, animal rehab, dog training, wildlife and much more.
“Kids across the age groups love the hands-on activities, including making enrichment toys and fake skin for wound care!” said Dr Audrey.
The older kids – Junior Vets – learn how to work through real life cases, interpret blood work and imaging, learn how to draw blood and observe real life surgery.
Dr Alison explained the camp is for all animal loving kids, not just wannabe vets.
“Whether or not the kids end up following the path to a career in veterinary medicine, just being around different animals and making like-minded new friends have such a positive impact on them,” she said.
