Vet Camp

Educational, exciting, hands-on learning about animal health

Vet Camp

One of the most popular programs at the Fair, Vet Camp is an educational, exciting, hands-on learning program aimed at encouraging children ages 10-18 to learn about animal health, welfare and what it is like to be an animal doctor. The two-hour program focuses on both large and small animal veterinary medicine. Vet Camp is FREE with paid Fair admission. Only 30 spots are available per session and sessions will be assigned according to date received. 

Advanced Vet Camp

Advanced Vet Camp has been developed for those kids who have already attended the Vet Camp program. Advanced Vet Camp will cover basic surgery, advanced pet wellness and animal reproduction. In order for your child to attend Advanced Vet Camp, they must have attended Vet Camp in either 2011, 2012, 2013 or 2014.
