Summer Jr. Vet Camp





Jr. Vet and Advanced Jr Vet are one week courses offered at Cub Creek Science Camp.  In our Jr. Vet program campers will have the opportunity to learn what it is like to be a veterinarian.  Campers will;


  • Learn the signs and symptoms of a sick verses healthy animal.

  • Conduct exams, including weighing, measuring, taking a temperatures and other vital statistics on a wide variety of animals

  • Create and update patient records.

  • Use a microscope to look for and identify internal parasites.

  • Look at real x-rays and learn what they can tell us about the condition of an animal by an x-ray.

  • Learn how to give injections, and practice giving an injection "to an orange".

  • Learn how to suture, and practice on a suture board.

  • Learn how to trim hooves, toe nails and flight feather.

  • Watch a real surgery as it is being preformed in our surgery room.  (Dr Brian Janke visits camp every week and performs spays and neuters on the puppies and kittens that are part of the local shelters rescue program.)


Campers will learn about dogs, cats, birds and small pocket pets as well as farm animals and a wide variety of exotic animals.  Our camp has more than 100 different species of animals.
