Youth Veterinary Camps
Witness the “Life of a Vet” from dawn to dusk … and, sometimes beyond.
Steele Equine Veterinary Camp provides youth (10-15 years of age) a hands-on glimpse of large animal Veterinary medicine.
During this 3-day adventure, campers will:
- Shadow Dr. Liz Steele as she evaluates sick or injured horses, solves the mystery of a lameness, artificially inseminates mares, and possibly delivers a foal.
- Learn the anatomy of a horse, health management (start developing an "eye" for abnormal vs. normal) and the miracle of "making a foal".
- Observe demonstrations and be able to practice bandaging a leg, foal imprinting, equine dentistry, and equine chiropractic medicine.
- Have a once in a lifetime experience while meeting new friends who share a love of animals and the curiosity of Veterinary medicine.
