Veterinarian Camps

2020 Vet Camp Update

Oxbow Animal Health has made the decision to cancel the 2020 vet camp season out of an abundance of caution for our campers and staff. We hope to see you and your children at camp next summer. In the meantime, stay safe and be well! Campers who have already registered will be contacted directly via email.

 

Junior Vet Camp - For students completing 2nd - 5th grades

The Oxbow Junior Veterinarian Camp is designed especially for children who have a passion for animals and veterinary medicine. The 4-day camp includes many hands-on activities, games and unique crafts.  Campers also get to meet a live animal each day!  Campers learn about veterinary tools, x-rays, body systems and functions, and important issues like animal over-population. In addition, they also get to practice activities like real veterinarians perform, including record-keeping and animal health exams.  At the end of camp, they perform a mock surgery, using all that they’ve learned. Campers get a camp t-shirt as well as their very own set of scrubs and a stethoscope to take home.

Intermediate Vet Camp - For students completing 6th - 8th grades

The Oxbow Intermediate Vet Camp focuses on various aspects of veterinary and animal science, including animal anatomy, physiology, nutrition and behavior.  During this 5-day camp, campers learn extensively about large animals and livestock as well as companion animals and pets.  They perform a mock surgery, with activities including: prepping for surgery, suturing, proper surgery room protocol and dressing for surgery.  Professionals from various animal-related careers (such as animal medicine, research and development, the pet food industry, veterinarians and vet techs) will present, lead activities, and answer questions. Intermediate campers also go on a field trip to learn about animal and veterinary-related professions.

Senior Vet Camp - For high school age students 

This short-course program will give high school-aged students an opportunity to immerse themselves in the field of veterinary medicine and participate in hands-on activities commonly conducted in a clinic setting.  The small class size coupled with instructors formally trained in animal and vet science will result in a unique, one-of-a-kind experience for youth looking to seriously explore veterinary medicine as a career path.
