NC Zoo's 2014 Veterinary Camps

Explore the Dream of Becoming a Zoo Veterinarian  

The North Carolina Zoo’s veterinary staff leads camp sessions, most of which take place in the Zoo’s Frederic Moir Hanes Veterinary Center.

All Campers use the Center’s treatment rooms, X-ray and lab facilities during hands-on experiences with endoscopes, microscopes and other equipment.

Campers learn to safely handle several species of animals and to give physical exams to dogs.
