Future Vet Kids Camp launches in Brisbane

Register now for HQ Brisbane or Virtual Online Camp for animal loving kids!

Queensland animal loving kids are celebrating the long-awaited launch of Australia’s favourite veterinary inspired camp Future Vet Kids Camp in Brisbane during the upcoming school holidays!

Having started in Sydney about 12 years ago, the 5-day program is designed and run by veterinarians and led by veterinarian sisters Drs Audrey and Alison Shen from the Bondi Vet TV show and Aussie Mobile Vet

The Camp caters to kids aged 9 to 16 years and encourages responsible pet ownership, the profession of veterinary medicine and a love and appreciation of all animals and their habitats!

The Brisbane camp will be held at the Holy Family Primary School in Indooroopilly on 28 June – 2 July and 5 – 9 July 2021

Registration is open to ages 9 to 14 only, with expressions of interest accepted for older teens for a future camp.

The Virtual Online Camp will run concurrently to the HQ Brisbane Camp with the ability for kids to join the classroom virtually and participate with questions in real time.

Dr Audrey said, “We know there are a lot of pet loving kids in Queensland. Some have even travelled to Sydney just to attend Future Vet Kids Camp and begged for us to run the program in their home state. We are thrilled to finally announce our first camp in Brisbane! Future Vet Kids Camp will also be running its second Virtual Online program after a successful first run during last year’s pandemic lockdown, welcoming aspiring young vets from across Australia and the world!

“We are running the Virtual Online Camp concurrently to our HQ Brisbane Camp and have added in the ability for kids to join the classroom virtually and ask all questions in real time if they wish!” said Dr Alison, who is based in Brisbane. “What I love most about the program is to see so many kids with the same passion learning and enjoying camp together and the lifelong friendships that are made.

“The camp showcases all the opportunities available as veterinarians and other wonderful professions in the animal industry. Many campers return every year to learn more and progress through the camp groups.”

Campers will learn about genetic diseases, pet nutrition, dog behaviour and enrichment, exotic animals, surgery, animal rescue, wildlife conservation and much more! They will also visit state-of-the-art veterinary hospitals for exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences and other exciting excursions, including the RSPCA Wildlife Animal Hospital and Lone Pine Sanctuary!

Drs Alison and Audrey are also excited about the outstanding presenters involved, such as surgical vets, wildlife and exotic vets, animal rescue groups, veterinary specialists, snake catchers, mobile vets and even a visit from the Queensland Mounted Police! The vet twins have been heavily involved in the treatment and rehabilitation of wildlife injured by the 2019-2020 summer bushfires and hope to bring the campers some insight into what they have learnt in this area.

“Whether or not the kids end up following the path to a career in veterinary medicine, simply being around lots of different animals (from kittens to snakes) and animal lovers from across the country have such a positive impact on them,” said Dr Alison.
