Here's what people have to say about the AVC Vet Camp!

"My child benefited immensely, not only from the depth and breadth of knowledge she acquired but also for giving her a taste of UPEI and the diversity of career possibilities if she does decide to study veterinary medicine."

"She had attended another vet camp at a different college and she said that she learned more at AVC because although they covered a lot of the same material, AVC was more hands-on and she felt that helped her learn the material more easily."

"I think this gave her an idea of what is involved in the profession, provided valuable exposure to the different aspects of veterinary medicine and gave her an idea of the hard work that it will take if she wants to pursue this field of study."

"I have never seen him so engaged in a learning activity! This will provide great motivation as he plans his goals."

"He is more driven and focused, having had the opportunity to explore some rudimentaries of what veterinary medicine entails. It is astoundingly remarkable and impressive to me how much my son’s confidence has soared."

"The level of teaching was just right, with a good balance of technical and fun. Has left her wanting more!"

"It was smooth and flowed well. I felt he was in good hands and well cared for. I appreciate the daily newsletters to enhance his debrief daily."

"I felt that it was extremely well organized and run. I felt that the communication was exceptional and I knew what was going on at all times. The Facebook page was great for communications and allowed other families to get in touch with each other."

"(The newsletters) were a useful prompt for the child to discuss the day's activities. Kept me informed and prepared for next day."

"(My son) has been waiting for 2 years to be old enough to apply and was beyond excited to attend this year. He said it was everything he was hoping for and would love to be able to go back. I have enjoyed listening to him talk about everything they had done all week."
