Boiler Vet Camp

Program Overview

The only camp of its kind in Indiana, Boiler Vet Camp gives want-to-be veterinarians or veterinary technicians the chance to live out their dreams. This camp is designed for students who are interested in becoming veterinary healthcare professionals and provides a preview into the real and vast fields of veterinary medicine. Students who attended a previous camp can not repeat the same camp.

Through presentations, demonstrations, laboratories, visits and in-depth, hands-on activities, students will discover what modern veterinary medicine is all about. Students will gain personal experience of what it is like to attend vet school and what it takes to become a veterinarian or veterinary technician through this seven day on-campus experience at one of the premier veterinary schools in the country. Students entering 8th and 9th grades are eligible to attend Jr. Camp and students entering the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades are eligible to attend the Sr. Camp. The minimum age required to attend Vet Camp is 12 years of age.

The application for 2014 is now closed! 

Note: Because of the potential for schools having delayed end dates due to winter weather closings, we will provide a letter for you to give to your school that Boiler Vet Camp is an academic camp. Most schools are willing to excuse you for academic camps. This letter can be requested upon acceptance to Boiler Vet Camp.
