We regret to inform you that the vet camp will not occur in summer 2024.

The instructor’s internship at the Jane Goodall Foundation in Africa will start and end later than originally planned, coinciding with the Celsius summer camp.
Too many kids today will be disappointed. We, therefore, promise to turn the world upside down by looking for a vet instructor next summer.

Calling all animal lovers and aspiring veterinarians!

Focusing on dogs, cats, birds, and horses, we will learn how to care for the well-being of our pets. Looking at and touching hearts, brains and eyes, and dissecting a frog, we will learn about the anatomy of pets and discover how alike and different they are from us. As vets-in-training, we will learn how to diagnose and treat common medical conditions such as parasites, administer first aid /CPR, and perform mock neutering, surgeries, and injections.

Staying healthy is very important for pets. That is why we will learn about a healthy diet, weight management of pets, cage cleaning, and daily walks.
The fun does not stop there! We will learn to train using skills such as Shake, Bow, Spin, Wipe your Paws, and more.
On the last day of camp, we will meet your pets and parents at the nearby park (if available) and perform a medical exam, putting to use all that we learned!
