The Society is taking applications now for its Veterinary, Wild Animal Science, and Middle-school Camps.
The North Carolina Zoo offers the country's most extraordinary Veterinary Camps for rising 7th - 9th graders and for rising 10th - 12 graders and college freshmen.
Action-packed, these camps provide hands-on training in basic veterinarian procedures—physical exams, CPR, and such—and explore specialized techniques—using dart guns and radio-tracking equipment—for treating wild animals.
Senior campers also go on two behind-the-scenes tours and one nighttime foray into the Zoo to learn how the animal care and veterinary staffs work together to monitor and manage the health of the Zoo's animals. Learn more by clicking here.
The Society also sponsors Wild Animal Science Camps for 6th - 9th graders and for rising 10th - 12 graders and college freshmen.
These camps explore how biologists conduct research and develop conservation programs for animals living in the wild. Learn more by clicking here.
The Society also sponsors a camp for Middle-school Students—So, You Think You Want to Work with Animals!
