Vet Camp

You can bet the farm this camp will be an udder delight for aspiring veterinarians. The week-long experience will introduce kids to the many things vets do, including hands-on work with dogs, cats, cows, horses, alpacas and more.

Campers will learn straight from the horse’s mouth about taking a heart rate; explore how a cow’s stomach works; scrub, gown and glove for a mock surgery; work through a case to find a diagnosis; practise with surgery simulators and much more. They’ll look the part too, with a scrub top to wear and take home.

These camps are offered at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine’s Spyhill Campus - 11877 85 St. NW.

Before and After Care are not available for Vet Camp.

Driving instructions will be provided upon registration.
