The perfect camp for the aspiring veterinarian!  This is an academic camp, best suited to kids who are keen on learning about veterinary medicine.

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 of working in an animal hospital.  Mini Vet 1 & Mini Vet 2 will be available for the 2022 Summer.

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.  Please note this is a program with three levels, different components happen in each course.  Mini Vet 1 focuses on Pet First Aid & CPR, Mini Vet 2 focuses on a case study, radiology, parasitology and how to make a diagnosis.  Our Mini Vet 3 program works on a variety of procedures, mock surgeries, large animal veterinary medicine and more.

Throughout the three-level program, participants will have the chance to look at what it is like 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! Our hands-on banana surgery will include operating on the banana, and complete suturing in our Mini Vet 3 program.

All Mini Vet programs have hands-on interaction with the animals each day.

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.
