Indian Trail Animal Hospital VET CAMP:

Summer 2019

We love veterinary medicine and animal healthcare careers and want to share our knowledge with young people that are as passionate about animals as we are. Campers will learn about animal health and have many opportunities for hands on experience.

Between Indian Trail Animal Hospital and Vet REC: Veterinary Rehabilitation and Exercise Clinic, we have 5 veterinarians and a wonderful support staff with a wealth of knowledge to share. Our Camp director has worked with children for many years as a nanny, storyteller, school librarian, and science instructor. She currently lives with 7 cats and 3 dogs in her home!
