Registration is now open for Future Vet Kids Camp, a face-to-face and virtual school holiday program that promotes the veterinary profession while encouraging responsible pet ownership and love and appreciation of all animals and their habitats.
The Sydney Camp will be held at Waverley College in Waverley on 8-12 and 15-19 January 2024. A Virtual Online Camp will run concurrently, allowing kids to join the classroom virtually and ask any questions they have in real time.
And once again, pet health company PetSure is awarding three youngsters a scholarship (valued at $655) to attend the camp in person.
“Kids across the age groups love the hands-on activities, from baking pet treats to making enrichment toys, drawing blood and doing CPR on specially designed vet models,” Dr Audrey said.
“The older kids (‘junior vets’) learn how to work through real-life cases, interpret imaging and blood work, learn all about vet school life and observe real life surgery.”
Dr Alison added: “Whether or not the kids end up following the path to a career in veterinary medicine, just being around different animals and making like-minded new friends has such a positive impact on them.”
