Our Vets in Training Summer Program is a unique experience designed with fun, interactive, educational experiences for students ages 5-12.
Activities will include animal care, lessons related to the weekly theme, presentations, hospital experiences, and a pizza party on Friday.
Program space is limited in order to facilitate a more personalized learning experience for each camper. * Field trips will be dependent upon CDC guidelines at that time*
