For children ages 12-14

If you are interested in becoming a veterinarian, this camp is for you!  Work alongside Zoo vets who care for more than 9,000 resident animals.  Through tours, demonstrations, and hands-on opportunities, you will discover what veterinary medicine is all about.  From checking in on patients to viewing samples under the microscope, this camp is educational, enjoyable, and inspiring all at the same time.

Please choose only one half-day session.  This program is very popular and we’d like as many campers as possible to have the opportunity to attend. If you have already participated in Veterinary Camp, please email to be placed on the waitlist –

All classes are conducted by experienced teachers and college students, each of whom is current with the following clearances: PA State Police Criminal Background Check, PA Child Abuse History (Childline), and FBI Criminal Background Check. The Zoo cannot be responsible for, or dispense, any medications to campers.
