What you'll learn
CPR + First Aid for Pets
At EXPLO’s veterinarian camp, you’ll get certified in pet CPR and learn how to respond to real-life scenarios that animals around you might encounter.
Large Animal Care
Go behind the scenes to learn about caring for large and exotic animals, including taking a capture-and-restraint session and touring an animal surgery room. Then visit an equine center to explore daily care of horses, from basic evaluations to dental assessments.
Domestic Pet Evaluations
Work with a visiting veterinarian to practice full medical evaluations on a cat or dog. Practice reading x-ray images, then use an ultrasound machine to identify organs inside of the animals.
Visit a wildlife rehab center to explore rehabilitation in action. Watch animal caretakers as they treat baby skunks, raccoons, birds, and snakes—and see how their daily care and handling practices can lead to a full recovery.
Explore a veterinary future
Past trips + experts + summer camp fun
At vet clinics, hospitals, and rehabilitation shelters, work directly with animals and their caretakers to discover the field of veterinary medicine from the inside out. From the zoo to the farm, at this veterinarian camp you won’t just study what it takes to become a great vet—you’ll be well on your way to becoming one yourself.
