Hey kids! What do you think happens when a comedian animal trainer, a Thai rescue dog and a goliath stick insect walk into Australia’s most pawpular school holiday camp for animal lovers? There’s only one way to find out!
Following a sell-out January 2022 camp in Sydney, Future Vet Kids Camp’s April 2022 school holiday program is now open for registrations!
The veterinary-inspired program is designed and run by twin veterinarians Drs Audrey and Alison Shen from BondiVet TV show and Aussie Mobile Vet. It caters to kids aged 9 to 16 years and encourages responsible pet ownership, the profession of veterinary medicine and surgery and a love and appreciation of all animals and their habitats!
The April 2022 camp will be held at Waverley College in Waverley, NSW from Tuesday, April 19 to Saturday, April 23. A Virtual Online VET Camp will run from Saturday, April 9 to Saturday, April 23 with the ability for kids to join the classroom virtually (during the face-to-face camp dates) and participate with questions in real time.
Campers will learn about the world of veterinary science and the different professions working with animals. Included in the program is pet CPR, ultrasound, baking pet treats, exotic pets, genetic diseases, veterinary acupuncture, analysing blood laboratory results, suture workshops, animal rescue, wildlife conservation and much more. They’ll also meet rescue dogs, handle rescue kittens and reptiles, and visit state-of-the-art veterinary hospitals for a behind-the-scenes experience!
“The presenters and excursions organised are outstanding, including vet hospital visits, zoo visits and surgery specialist talks to dog training demonstrations, animal behaviour and more” Dr Alison said. “The older kids learn how to work through real life cases, interpret blood work and imaging and even draw blood from model pet arms and observe real life surgery!”
Dr Audrey said, “Whether or not the kids end up following the path to a career in veterinary medicine, simply being around lots of different animals and animal lovers will have such a positive impact on them.”
The April camp is anticipated to fill up fast, so register now!
