Want to help your animal-loving child make the most out of the summer holidays? Then consider enrolling them in Future Vet Kids Camp—an exciting veterinary-themed school holiday program in Waverley, Sydney, that caters to kids aged 9 to 16 years.
Each year, the camp offers new experiences that inspire kids to return multiple times, said veterinarian and camp director Dr Scott Bainbridge, who regularly appears on Animal Planet’s TV show Animal House Call and loves to share his passion for “the greatest job in the world”.
“Future Vet Kids Camp encourages responsible pet ownership, the profession of veterinary medicine and a love and appreciation of animals of all kinds and their habitats,” Dr Bainbridge said.
“We love to see the campers get excited about pursuing their dream to work with animals, and then go out with the knowledge and experiences they’ve gained at the camp and start making a difference for pets and people around the world.
“Some of Future Vet Kids Camp graduates have already embarked on their educational journey at veterinary school and we look forward to following their successes!” Dr Bainbridge added.
The January 2018 schedule includes fun and educational ‘animal adventures’, excursions and talks by veterinarians, behaviourists and experts from animal rescue, reptile, small animal and canine sports groups.
Campers will hear about scent detection, breed identification and genetic diseases courtesy of Dogs NSW; pet nutrition, stem cell therapy, how to draw blood and suture and more. They will get up close and personal with creepy crawlies, learn about wildlife conservation and animal rescue, and venture behind the scenes at vet hospitals.
The next Future Vet Kids Camp will run from Jan 8-12 and Jan 15-19, 2018. Future Vet Kids Camp is also proud to announce the 2018 PetSure Scholarship for two deserving kids.
