Veterinary and Wild Animal Science Camps

2017 Veterinary Science Camps

The North Carolina Zoo's veterinary staff leads the camping sessions, most of which take place inside the Zoo's Frederic Moir Hanes Veterinary Center. All campers use the Veterinary Center's treatment rooms, X-ray and lab facilities during hands-on experiences with endoscopes, microscopes and other equipment.
