The College of Veterinary Medicine partners with Auburn’s Office of Professional and Continuing Education to offer Vet Camps each summer to youth interested in the veterinary medicine profession.
Two camps are run the week of June 17-22: one for rising high school 12th graders, called Senior Vet Camp; and one for rising 9-11 graders, called Vet Camp.
*Vet Camps for 2018 are FILLED; registration typically opens in November through the Auburn University Office of Professional and Continuing Education.
Second-year veterinary students, with faculty, technicians and staff provide the veterinary coursework campers will take, which is similar to actually veterinary education. Campers learn and study on our campus in laboratories and classrooms designed for veterinary students.
Campers learn about veterinary medicine first-hand in classrooms, laboratories, and outdoor facilities that include Auburn’s raptor, equine, dairy, beef, and swine units. Campers learn about public health, food animals, wildlife, anatomy, imaging, and first aid, as well as gain valuable mentoring about veterinary science careers.
Camp participants also experience campus-life while residing in Auburn’s resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers have 24/7 counselor supervision.
