For students completing 2nd – 5th grade
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 involving live animals, games and unique crafts. 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 their very own set of scrubs and a stethoscope to take home.

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.
