Veterinarian Camp: Pets (3 hours)

Regular price $25.00 Sale

Turn your summer camp into a veterinary school for kids! In this camp, kids learn all about what veterinarians do, the tools and instruments they use, and the kinds of animals they take care of. They view x-rays, explore anatomy, make models and learn how to tell whether an animal is sick -- all while learning lots of useful information about household pets, barnyard animals, zoo mammals, aquatic animals and backyard critters. Educational value: chemistry, physics, biology, zoology, creative thinking and teamwork. 

This camp is especially appealing to girls, who are often hard to draw into science programs.  look inside
