Mini Vet Camp
Campers 12-15 years old
The perfect camp for the aspiring veterinarian!
For those who want to be a vet one day, or have a keen interest in working in the veterinary field and are interested in an academic camp program. The Pawsitively Pets Mini Vet Camp has a three-level, hands-on program to walk kids through the key aspects of veterinary medicine, and the daily life working in an animal hospital.
Campers will be introduced to veterinary medicine, learn all about what it takes to be a vet, and what you need to take in school.
In addition to getting certified in Pet First Aid, participants will have the chance to work in the vet clinic, learn how to give injections, watch a surgery, complete a full pet wellness exam, and learn all the techniques to do their own surgery on a banana over the three-level program! Our hands-on banana surgery will include operating on the banana, and complete suturing.
Campers will learn the basics of radiology, parasitology, large animal veterinary medicine, and have the opportunity to work on their own “medical case.”
All Mini Vet 1 participants receive a pet first aid kit, Mini Vet 2 a scrub shirt and Mini Vet 3 a stethoscope with their registration.
Staff/Leader to camper ratio for Mini Vet is 1 staff to 10 campers.
