Oxbow Vet Camp for 6th-8th Grade Students





Intermediate Vet Camp - For students completing 6th - 8th grades

This year’s Intermediate Vet Camp will focus on the cardiovascular system, blood, nutrition, and genetics.  Intermediate Campers will learn extensively about large animals (including cows, goats, and elephants) as well as small animals (including dogs, cats, and rabbits).  They will perform a mock surgery, with activities including: prepping for surgery, suturing, proper surgery room protocol and dressing for surgery (including items such as scrubs, gloves, head covers, shoe covers, and masks).  Professionals from various animal-related careers (such as animal medicine, research and development, the pet food industry, veterinarians and vet techs) will present, lead activities, and answer questions.
