Senior VET Camp – June 17-22, 2018
Rising 12th Grade
The Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine partners with the Auburn University Office of Professional and Continuing Education to offer Vet Camps each summer to youth interested in the veterinary medicine profession.
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 will learn about veterinary medicine first-hand in classrooms, laboratories, and outdoor facilities that include Auburn’s raptor, equine, dairy, beef, and swine units. Campers will learn about public health, food animals, wildlife, anatomy, imaging, and first aid, as well as gain valuable mentoring about veterinary science careers.
Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.

Campers will have various meal options for breakfast and lunch in The Student Center. Unlike breakfast and lunch, dinner is held in The Village Dining facility, where they have unlimited options of a buffet-style meal.
The instructional activities and hands-on experiences for this camp will be held at the Auburn University Veterinary Medicine facility.
