Dr. Tim Ogilvie AVC Vet Camp

The Atlantic Veterinary College is currently putting plans in place to hold the Dr. Tim Ogilvie AVC Vet Camp in July of 2021 and is now accepting applications. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot guarantee that the camp will take place this summer. Please check this website for updates.

The Atlantic Veterinary College’s Dr. Tim Ogilvie AVC Vet Camp (a.k.a. AVC Vet Camp) offers a behind-the-scenes peek into the world of veterinary medicine—from doing physical examinations on dogs and horses to learning how to dress like a surgeon and suturing on a silicon suture pad. You will be amazed at what you will see, learn, and do!

Activities include a balance of hands-on activities, lectures, labs, and discussions. You will meet some interesting animals, and you will explore the science of animals through sessions on pathology, bacteriology, anatomy, toxicology, and more! You will visit our large- and small animal hospitals, take a couple of field trips, find out what learning to become a veterinarian involves, 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 2021, and for students entering grades 10, 11, and 12 in the fall of 2021. The junior camps are scheduled to take place from July 5–9 and July 12─16, and the senior camps from July 19─23 and July 26─30, 2021.
