Our award-winning AVC Vet Camp is one of only a few in North America.

Located in beautiful Prince Edward Island, the Dr. Tim Ogilvie AVC Vet Camp (a.k.a. AVC Vet Camp) offers a behind-the-scenes look into the world of veterinary medicine. From exotics to surgeries, be prepared to be amazed. It’s so much fun you may not even realize you’re learning!

AVC Vet Camp is an educational experience like no other. Activities are planned to ensure a balanced mixture of hands-on activities, lectures, labs, and discussions. You will meet some interesting animals, and explore the science of animals through sessions on pathology, bacteriology, anatomy, toxicology, and more! You'll visit our large- and small-animal hospitals, take a couple of field trips, hear about the educational requirements to become a veterinarian, and learn how to keep your pets and farm animals healthy.

AVC Vet Camp features one-week camps for students entering grades 7,8, and 9 in the fall of 2020, and for students entering grades 10, 11, and 12 in the fall of 2020. The Junior Camps run from July 6–10 and July 13–17. Senior Camps are scheduled for July 20–24 and July 27–31, 2020.
