Interested in veterinary medicine? Then the 4-H Animal & Vet Science Camp is the place for you! Learn about and work with many different species of animals large and small.
Michigan 4-H Animal and Veterinary Science Camp is for youth who are interested in exploring animal and veterinary science related projects and activities. Participants must be ages 13 to 16 as of January 1, 2018.
This five-day pre-college program held at Michigan State University is a partnership with the Michigan 4-H Youth Development, MSU Department of Animal Science and MSU College of Veterinary Medicine. Youth will explore fields relating to animal and veterinary medicine as well as participate in numerous hands-on learning activities. Participants will also gain animal handling experience while having the opportunity to visit and explore MSU farms and facilities. Throughout the week, teens will work their way through a veterinary science case study as a team and create a presentation to be critiqued by veterinarians. This is a fun and interactive camp that will allow youth to conduct activities, ask questions and problem-solve. Additionally, this camp will help youth explore various animal-related career fields while reflecting on their experiences and community programs.
Youth ages 13 to 16 will need to complete the 2018 Michigan 4-H Animal and Veterinary Science Camp application packet. Registration information is coming soon!
Space is limited! Campers will be selected on the basis of their applications.
The cost to attend this five-day camp is $350 and includes all meals, transportation to field trips, lodging and materials.
